Enteral Nutrition Practices in ICU Patients With Circulatory Shock

2022 14 Jun

Approximately one-third of patients admitted to the ICU are in circulatory shock, which increases the risk of mortality. Death from circulatory shock is preceded by multiple organ dysfunction syndrome with a high mortality rate of over 80%. Loss of gut epithelial barrier function contributes to gut-derived proinflammatory immune responses that contribute... Read more

Microcirculatory reactivity impaired in patients with circulatory shock

2018 15 May

Skin laser Doppler (SLD) with a thermal challenge is a technique that allows simple, noninvasive evaluation of skin microcirculatory reactivity. Using this technique, researchers have demonstrated that reactivity of skin microcirculation during a thermal challenge is decreased in patients with circulatory shock and has prognostic value.  "This...
