[Correspondence] Care bundles in intensive care units
Ventilator-associated pneumonia and central-line-associated bloodstream infections are common complications for patients in intensive care units receiving mechanical ventilation and contribute to increased length of stay and mortality. Many studies have shown the effectiveness of care bundles to reduce rates of these complications. In their Article, Lennie Derde and colleagues report that improved hand hygiene plus unit-wide chlorhexidine body-washing reduced acquisition of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, particularly meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Continuous endotracheal tube cuff pressure control system protects against ventilator-associated pneumonia
The objective of this study was to compare the incidence of VAP in a large sample of patients (n=284) treated with either continuous or intermittent control of endotracheal tube cuff pressure. Methods: We performed a prospective observational study of patients undergoing mechanical ventilation during more than 48 hours in an intensive care unit (ICU) using either continuous or intermittent endotracheal tube cuff pressure control. Multivariate logistic regression analysis (MLRA) and Cox proportional hazard regression analysis were used to predict VAP. The magnitude of the effect was expressed as odds ratio (OR) or hazard ra...

High versus Low Blood-Pressure Target in Patients with Septic Shock
This multicentre, open label trial randomized over 700 patients with septic shock to undergo resuscitation to MAP target of 80-85 mmHg or 65-70 mmHg. The primary outcome of mortality was no different in either group at 28 or 90 days. However, the higher target group required less renal replacement therapy. : Hydroxyethyl Starch or Saline for Fluid Resuscitation in Intensive Care.

Lourdes cutting 23 jobs as part of service realignment
Lourdes Health System is eliminating 23 hospital-based positions and making other clinical and personnel changes to “better position” the Camden-based health-care organization for the future. Alexander J. Hatala, Lourdes president and CEO, said other realignment of resources will include re-designating the intensive care nursery unit at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center from a Level-III to a Level-II unit, which will lower operating costs, and making unspecified “leadership changes” in… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Pharmaceuticals headlines)

Successful control of a neonatal outbreak caused mainly by ST20 multidrug-resistant SHV-5-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, Greece
Background: Extended spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBL-Kp) infection can cause significant morbidity and mortality in neonates. We investigated a nosocomial ESBL-Kp outbreak in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of the University Hospital of Larissa (UHL), Central Greece. Methods: A total of sixty-four ESBL-Kp were studied; twenty six isolates were recovered from the NICU and were compared with thirty-eight randomly selected isolates from different wards of the hospital during the period March- December 2012. All isolates were characterized by antimicrobial susceptibility testing, ESBL-produc...

Reducing the impact of insulin sensitivity variability on glycaemic outcomes using separate stochastic models within the STAR glycaemic protocol
Conclusions: SI levels increase significantly, while variability decreases during the first 18 hours of a patients stay in ICU. Virtual trials, using a separate stochastic model for this period, demonstrated a reduction in variability and hypoglycaemia during the first 18 hours without adversely affecting the overall level of control. Thus, use of multiple models can reduce the impact of SI variability during model-based glycaemic control. (Source: BioMedical Engineering OnLine)

[In Context] News in brief
Early decompressive hemicraniectomy reduces mortality without increasing the risk of severe disability in young patients (60 years or younger) with extensive middle cerebral artery stroke. Results of the DESTINY II trial now show that early hemicraniectomy also increases the probability of survival in older patients (N Engl J Med 2014; 370: 1091–100). 112 patients aged 61 years or older (median 70 years, range 61–82) with malignant middle cerebral artery infarction were randomly assigned to conservative treatment in the intensive care unit (63 patients) or hemicraniectomy (49 patients) within 48 h of symptom onset.

Predicting outcome from subacute unresponsive wakefulness syndrome or vegetative state
Predicting recovery of consciousness in patients who survive their coma but evolve to a vegetative state (recently coined unresponsive wakefulness syndrome) remains a challenge. Most previous prognostic studies have focused on the acute coma phase. A novel outcome scale (combining behavioural, aetiology, electroencephalographic, sleep electroencephalographic and somatosensory evoked potential data) has been proposed for patients in subacute unresponsive wakefulness syndrome. The scale’s clinical application awaits validation in a larger population. (Source: Critical Care)

The impact of alcohol intoxication in patients admitted due to assault at an Australian major trauma centre: a trauma registry study from 1999 to 2009

Clinical evidence of alcohol intoxication in patients admitted for assault appears to be associated with more severe injury, including severe head injury. (Source: Emergency Medicine Journal)

Rationales of restricted visiting hour in Iranian intensive care units: a qualitative study
ConclusionThe result showed that through restricted visiting hours, nurses try to protect vulnerable ICU patients from physical, psychological and legal risk. Although the ICU nurses' concerns seem reasonable in some cases, a review of visiting policies in order to meet the needs of patients and their families is essential. Relevance to clinical practiceEffective supervision by charge nurses and regulation of environmental activities with visiting hours can resolve many concerns. Health care professionals, especially nurses, are required to create the conditions in which patients' family members are informed about the pati...

Routine post-operative intensive care is not necessary for children with obstructive sleep apnea at high risk after adenotonsillectomy
Conclusions: Our data confirm high rates of AE after AT for high risk patients, however, only 8% suffered a severe AE truly necessitating care in ICU. This outcome was very unlikely if an AE did not occur in PACU. We therefore conclude that routine post-operative ICU care for high risk children may be avoided if prolonged monitoring in the PACU is possible, with admission to ICU reserved for high-risk children with an early AE.

St. David's expanding ICU north of Austin
St. David's Georgetown Hospital is embarking on a $6.6 million project to expand its intensive care unit starting this summer. When complete in 2015, the ICU will have expanded from 2,200 square feet to 11,500 square feet. It will have nine critical care beds, including two isolation rooms, along with significant medical technology upgrades and its own waiting room. The expansion, which is not expected to impact patient services during construction, means the hospital now plans to hire more nurses… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Biotechnology headlines)

Mechanical ventilation drives pneumococcal pneumonia into lung injury and sepsis in mice: protection by adrenomedullin
IntroductionVentilator-induced lung injury (VILI) contributes to morbidity and mortality in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Particularly pre-injured lungs are susceptible to VILI despite protective ventilation. In a previous study, the endogenous peptide adrenomedullin (AM) protected murine lungs from VILI. We hypothesized that mechanical ventilation (MV) contributes to lung injury and sepsis in pneumonia, and that AM may reduce lung injury and multiple organ failure in ventilated mice with pneumococcal pneumonia. Methods: We analyzed in mice the impact of MV in established pneumonia on lung injury, inflammatio...
