Personalised Medicine in Intensive Care

2017 16 Mar

The specialty of intensive care medicine grew out of the realisation that critically ill patients needed more attention and specialised treatment than could be provided on a general ward, and that many of these patients had similar clinical problems and processes, so management would be facilitated if they were grouped together in one place. Since those early... Read more

Precision Medicine in Sepsis

2017 16 Mar

Multiple failed clinical trials testing immunomodulatory therapies for sepsis argue for a new approach. While precision medicine has been successfully implemented in other fields, testing it in sepsis poses challenges, which this review will discuss, along with potential implementation strategies.Sepsis has an estimated annual incidence of 1.3 million...
