    The article discusses the use and relevance of cardiac troponins (cTn) in anaesthesia and critical care medicine. It states that cTn are more cardiac-specific than the MB fraction of creatine kinase (CK-MB) and have a very high sensitivity that can even detect the microscopic areas of myocardial...

    Introduction: The intrinsic heterogeneity of clinical septic shock is a major challenge. For clinical trials, individual patient management, and quality improvement efforts, it is unclear which patients are least likely to survive and thus benefit from alternative treatment approaches. A robust...

Asger; Tousi, Hamid; Søe-Jensen, Peter; Bestle, Morten; Hestad, Søren // BMC Infectious Diseases;2008, Vol. 8 Issue 1, Special section p1 

    Background: Sepsis and complications to sepsis are major causes of mortality in critically ill patients. Rapid treatment of sepsis is of crucial importance for survival of patients. The infectious status of the critically ill patient is often difficult to assess because symptoms cannot be...

  • Heart Rate Variability -- Noninvasive Monitoring of Autonomic Nervous System Function. Omerbegovic, Meldijana // Acta Informatica Medica;2009, Vol. 17 Issue 1, p53 

    Monitoring of changes in heart rate is the commonest way of rapid assessment of cardiovascular function in everyday clinical practice. Analysis of the recordings of the heart electrical activity enabled the discovery that specific fluctuations of the length of consecutive heart cycles, which can...
