Introduction. Edwards syndrome is the second most common autosomal chromosome anomaly in humans, with a prevalence of 1: 6,000–1: 8,000 in live births. The syndrome includes a recognizable pattern of major and minor anomalies, and prominent psychomotor and cognitive impairments. It carries an increased risk of neonatal and infant mortality. More than 50% of children die in the fi rst week of their life, and less than 10% of them survive until the age of one year. The approach to the treatment of such patients has so far caused many controversie...

Hemodynamic monitoring in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) settings is usually introduced when a patient becomes hemodynamically unstable. We analyzed how empirically guided volume management relates to first measured intrathoracic blood volume (ITBV), at the moment of the beginning of Puls Contour Cardiac Output (PiCCO) hemodynamic monitoring. Data and measurements from 37 ICU patients, divided into four groups according to diagnosis of primary condition, were retrospectively studied. The first group consisted of polytrauma patients, second group of...

Since no appropriate data is available yet, we sought to investigate the plasma concentrations of vaspin in sepsis. Materials and methods: 57 patients in intensive care, fulfilling the ACCP/SCCM criteria for sepsis, were prospectively included in our exploratory study. The control group consisted of 48 critically ill patients, receiving intensive ca...

eng Centralization of Intensive Care Units: Process Reengineering in a Hospital
Kumar, Arun; Shim, Sung J.
International Journal of Engineering Business Management Vol. 2, No. 1, 2010
Centralization of intensive care units (ICUs) is a concept that has been around for several decades and the OECD countries have led the way in adopting this in their operations. Singapore Hospital was built in 1981, before the concept of centralization of ICUs took off. The hospital’s ICUs were never centralized and were spread out across eight different blocks with the specialization they were associated with. Coupled with the acquisitions of the new concept of centralization and its benefits, the hospital recognizes the importance of having a...

Collegium antropologicum Vol. 31, No. 4, 2007
Bacteremia is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in children treated in pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). We have investigated the causative agents of bacteremia in our PICU over a one-year period, to determine mortality associated with such infection and identify the dependent predictors for morbidity and mortality. From 1 January till 31 December 2006, 479 patients were admitted in the PICU and 379 blood culture samples were taken. Samples were incubated in the BACTEC 9050 System, and isolates identified by routine microbiologi...
