  • Inter-hospital transfer and mortality in AKI patients

    Inter-hospital transfer of critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) does not increase risk of death or dialysis dependence 30 days after the initiation of acute renal replacement therapy.

  • Renal effects of TLR4-inhibitor treatment

    TLR4-mediated inflammation may be an important part of the pathogenesis underlying gram-negative septic acute kidney injury; treatment with a TLR4-inhibitor is able to reverse this impairment of renal function.

  • Mortality of HIV patients in the ICU

    HIV infection is related to a higher frequency of severe sepsis and death among patients admitted to the ICU; coinfection with Hepatitis C virus increases risk of death in the presence and absence of sepsis.

  • Glucose monitoring in the critically ill

    Subcutaneous continuous glucose monitoring to guide insulin treatment in critically ill patients is as safe and effective as intermittent point-of-care measurements and reduces nursing workload and daily costs

  • Consultant cover and ICU mortality

    There is no relationship between days of continuous cover by a single intensivist and patient outcomes in adult, general ICUs in England but intensivist participation in handover is associated with increased mortality.

  • Therapeutic hypothermia and immune response
