Update in sepsis and pulmonary infections 2013.
Abstract The Journal has been in the vanguard of publications of the respiratory microbiome, including a National Institutes of Health Workshop report, establishing the normal microbiome in patients with various risks, and in the correlation of microbiome changes with disease exacerbations and lung transplant. A new classification scheme for healthcare-associated pneumonia, risks for nosocomial Pseudomonas pneumonia, and associations between community-acquired pneumonia and risks or outcomes have been reported. The increasingly recognized role of viral respiratory tract infections was reflected in publications rega...

Update in lung transplantation 2013.
Abstract Research in pulmonary transplantation is actively evolving in quality and scope to meet the challenges of a growing population of lung allograft recipients. In 2013, research groups leveraged large publicly available datasets in addition to multicenter research networks and single-center studies to make significant contributions to our knowledge and clinical care in the areas of donor use, clinical transplant outcomes, mechanisms of rejection, infectious complications, and chronic allograft dysfunction.

Physical therapy-driven quality improvement to promote early mobility in the intensive care unit.
We describe a physical therapist-led program to introduce such changes in a medical-surgical and a cardiovascular ICU. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary meetings and education sessions informed critical care team members about early mobilization and encouraged knowledge sharing for safety and effectiveness. A lead physical therapist was appointed to advocate for early mobility and developed solutions to overcome the identified barriers. After the initiation of this program, the number of ICU patients receiving physical therapy evaluations increased from 364 in 2011-2012 to 542 in 2012-2013. In this article, we descri...

The Evolution of Respiratory Cryptosporidiosis: Evidence for Transmission by Inhalation.
Abstract SUMMARY: The protozoan parasite Cryptosporidium infects all major vertebrate groups and causes significant diarrhea in humans, with a spectrum of diseases ranging from asymptomatic to life-threatening. Children and immunodeficient individuals are disproportionately affected, especially in developing countries, where cryptosporidiosis contributes substantially to morbidity and mortality in preschool-age children. Despite the enormous disease burden from cryptosporidiosis, no antiprotozoal agent or vaccine exists for effective treatment or prevention. Cryptosporidiosis involving the respiratory tract has bee...

Limited efficacy of Fever Tag(®) temperature sensing ear tags in calves with naturally occurring bovine respiratory disease or induced bovine viral diarrhea virus infection.
Abstract Temperature sensing ear tags were tested in 1) auction-derived calves with 50% incidence of bovine respiratory disease, and 2) specific pathogen-free calves infected with bovine virus diarrhea virus. There were no false positives, but tag placement, probe displacement, and a high threshold for activation all contributed to failure to reliably detect sick calves.

Reoperative lung transplantation for donor-derived pulmonary mucormycosis.
Abstract A 64-year-old male with end-stage lung disease underwent right orthotopic lung transplantation. After doing well initially, he developed acute hypoxemic respiratory failure with allograft pneumonia. Donor operative cultures demonstrated mold of the Mucor species, which were corroborated by donor endobronchial cultures obtained near the right mainstem bronchial anastomosis. The patient was treated with reoperative bilateral orthotopic lung transplantation in combination with antifungal agents. The operation was performed successfully, using lungs donated after cardiac death and treated with ex vivo lung ...

Massive pulmonary embolism with liver injury associated with chest compressions during cardiac resuscitation.
Abstract A 34-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of sudden respiratory failure caused by massive pulmonary embolism. After arrival in the hospital, the patient experienced cardiopulmonary arrest, and we promptly initiated percutaneous cardiopulmonary support, in addition to sternal compressions for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Computed tomography revealed massive pulmonary embolisms and intraperitoneal bleeding due to liver injury. After interventional hemostasis of the hepatic arteries, we performed emergent pulmonary embolectomy and hemostasis of the liver with gauze packing. Absence of further i...

Pediatric Respiratory Infectious Emergencies
Abstract: The review questions that are featured in each of the issues of the JEN are based upon the Emergency Nursing Core Curriculum and other pertinent resources to emergency nursing practice, pediatric and adult. These questions offer emergency nurses an opportunity to test their knowledge about their practice. These questions appear both in print and online. (Source: Journal of Emergency Nursing: JEN)

Freeze-drying of HI-6-loaded recombinant human serum albumin nanoparticles for improved storage stability.
Abstract Severe intoxications with organophosphates require the immediate administration of atropine in combination with acetyl cholinesterase (AChE) reactivators such as HI-6. Although this therapy regimen enables the treatment of peripheral symptoms, the blood-brain barrier (BBB) restricts the access of the hydrophilic antidotes to the central nervous system which could lead to a fatal respiratory arrest. Therefore, HI-6-loaded albumin nanoparticles were previously developed to enhance the transport across this barrier and were able to reactivate organophosphate- (OP)-inhibited AChE in an in vitro BBB model. Sinc...

D-Dimer Concentrations in Dogs with Pulmonary Embolism
The incidence of pulmonary embolism in dogs is unknown. Clinical signs are not specific for pulmonary embolism and mimic signs of other cardiopulmonary diseases. However, it has been reported in dogs and associated with immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, sepsis, neoplasia, protein-losing nephropathies, hyperadrenocorticism, and cardiac diseases. Pulmonary embolism is suspected in patients that develop respiratory difficulty in which no primary cardiac or respiratory disease can be confirmed and with concurrent diseases predisposing to thromboembolic complications. Antemortem confirmation of pulmonary embolism is rarely done...

[In Process Citation].
Abstract For people unaccustomed to high altitude, exposure to height often leads to Acute Mountain Sickness, with headaches, difficulty breathing and gastrointestinal symptoms. Nausea and loss of appetite may result in less calorie intake and weight loss. At altitudes greater than 4000 m about 50-80% of people are affected. After only short exposure, gastrointestinal mucosal lesions can occur, potentially leading to gastrointestinal bleeding and lessened hunger. Patients with inflammatory bowel disorders may develop an acute exacerbation. At high altitude, an induction of numerous metabolic processes can be observ...

Oxygen enhanced lung MRI by simultaneous measurement of T1 and T2* during free breathing using ultrashort TE
ConclusionThe proposed method provides inherently coregistered, quantitative T1 and T2* maps in both expiration and inspiration from a single measurement acquired during free breathing and is thus well suited for clinical application.J.

Genetic environment of β-lactamase genes of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from patients with lower respiratory tract infection in China.
CONCLUSIONS: Perfective implementation of the genetic environment information of bgr;-lactamase gene needs to be further explored and supplemented. ISEcp1 and IS26 elements are widespread upstream of the blaCTX-M, blaSHV and blaTEM genes and contribute to horizontal transmission and genetic expression.

Minimally Invasive Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass for Fundoplication Failure Offers Excellent Gastroesophageal Reflux Control.
Abstract Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) may represent a superior alternative to reoperative fundoplication in patients with symptomatic failure. Our goal was to assess early outcomes of patients after RYGB for failed fundoplication. Records of patients who underwent fundoplication takedown and RYGB from March 2007 to June 2013 were reviewed for demographics, comorbidities, operative findings, and perioperative outcomes. Data are reported as medians (range). Forty-five patients who had undergone 64 prior antireflux procedures (range, one to three fundoplications) were identified. Median patient age was 56 years (ra...
