  • Combined Extracorporeal Lung and Kidney Support in Fluid Overload

    • 20/04/2023

    During artificial organ support, kidney injury is multifactorial and related to the high severity of patients treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). The successful delivery of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) during ECMO requires a clear prescription of the target solute clearance and fluid removal rate based on the cumulative fluid balance and physiological variables....

  • The Use of Critical Care Ultrasound

    • 08/12/2022

    Critical care ultrasound examination should be considered in specific situations in the intensive care unit. It has become increasingly important to understand and master all the possible applications and future innovations of ultrasonography in the critical care setting.   Point of care application of ultrasound has been widely validated as an essential imaging technique in the...

  • Sepsis in Critical Care

    • 14/10/2022

    The importance of clearly defining sepsis, improving early recognition strategy, and increasing the understanding of innate and adaptive immune system derangements that facilitate the development of sepsis. The improvement in mortality outcomes of patients with sepsis is attributable to the early recognition of sepsis, better adherence to guidelines, and a prompt organisation's responsiveness....

  • Microbiome in Sepsis and COVID-19

    • 30/09/2021

    Bacteria play a fundamental role in human life. Given the many roles of gut microbiota in critical illness and other pathological conditions, it is important to target therapeutical interventions to restore, preserve and enrich its composition. Introduction Bacteria play, for better or worse, a fundamental role in human life. As multidrug resistant bacterial infections are increasing...

  • Oxygen Therapy in COVID-19 Patients: The Role of HFNC and CPAP

    • 24/06/2021

    Oxygen therapy and mechanical ventilation in patients with COVID-19 and steps to choose the right therapeutic strategy for each patient. Introduction Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus CoV-2 is the highly contagious viral agent responsible for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 is the name of the syndrome caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection. Common signs of infection include...

  • The Post-ICU Patient

    • 24/11/2020

    “The success of intensive care has not to be measured only by survival statistics, as though each death is a medical failure. It has to be measured by the quality of lives preserved or restored and by the quality of dying of those in whose interest is to die.” This statement of G. R. Dunstan, Prof. of Morals and Social Theology, dating back to 1995, represents a warning to all intensivists. Since...

  • Pathophysiology of endotoxic shock

    • 16/10/2018

    Mechanisms of endotoxin-induced multi-organ damage. Endotoxin-induced sepsis remains a leading cause of mortality in intensive care units (ICUs) worldwide. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) identification by the immune system triggers a cascade of signalling pathways, leading to the release of several cytokines and chemokines, which orchestrate the antimicrobial and inflammatory response, though...
