  • Respirophasic Carotid Peak Systolic Velocity Variation as a Predictor of
           Volume Responsiveness in Mechanically Ventilated Patients with Septic

    • Authors: Saber; Hamdy M.; El Maraghil, Sameh K.; Naguib, Mina Kh.; Abd-Elbaset, Ahmed S.; Elkholy, Mohamed B.
      Abstract: imageIntroduction: The evaluation of fluid responsiveness in patients with hemodynamic instability remains to be challenging. This investigation aimed to determine whether respiratory variation in carotid systolic velocity (CSV) predicts fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients with septic shock.Methods: Our study was a prospective interventional study that was carried out on 40 adult mechanically ventilated patients with septic shock. Two sets of measurements were performed before and immediately after volume expansion. Cardiac output (CO), stroke volume (SV), stroke volume index (SVI), IVC distensibility index (IVC -DI) were measured by transthoracic echocardiography and carotid systolic velocity index (CSV index) was measured by carotid Doppler. Respiratory variation of pulse pressure (PPV%) and central venous pressure (CVP) were recorded. Fluid challenge responders were defined as patients whose cardiac output was increased ≥15%. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) was compared for each predictive parameter.Results: Our study found that the most important baseline patient parameters that could predict the fluid responsiveness of patient with septic shock are the CSV index followed by PPV% then IVC-DI. For CSV index AUC was 1.000 the cut-off point was 10.5% with sensitivity 95% and specificity was 95%. For PPV%, (AUC) was 0.974, the cut-off point was 14% with sensitivity 95% and specificity was 90%. For IVC-DI, (AUC) was 0.913 the cut-off point 14.5% carried a sensitivity 85% and specificity 90%.Conclusions: The CSV index is a sensitive and promising parameter in predicting fluid responsiveness of mechanically ventilated patient with septic shock is promising parameter followed by PPV% then IVC-DI.

  • Prognostic Implications of Bronchoalveolar Fluid Analysis in
           Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia: An Observational Cohort Study

    • Authors: Kamel; Walid M.; Fayed, Ahmad S.; Emam, Raef H.; Andraos, Ashraf W.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is one of the most frequent infections with high mortality rates in intensive care units (ICUs) and the prediction of outcome is paramount in the decision-making process.Objective: To assess the prognostic value of cellular analysis of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BAL) in the prediction of mechanical ventilation (MV) weaning and mortality during VAP episodes in ICU patients.Methods: This study was a prospective observational cohort study. Sixty patients who were admitted to critical care department at Cairo university hospitals and developed VAP, were included in the study consecutively. Clinical and laboratory data were recorded on admission as well as CPIS, PSI, PIRO, and IBMP-10 scores on the day of the diagnosis of VAP. All patients had bronchoalveolar lavage after diagnosis of VAP was established. The BALF was sent for cellular analysis (total and differential leucocytic count).Results: From a total of 60 patients with VAP, 51.7% were males, the age was 59.6 ± 17.5 years. Mortality rate was 86.7% and failed weaning was recorded in 53 patients (88.3%). Survivors and non-survivors had no significant differences, apart from higher PIRO scores in non-survivors.Bronchoscopic fluid analysis showed higher TLC, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and macrophages in those who failed mechanical ventilation. Neutrophils in BAL > 170/cc showed 60.4% sensitivity and 71.4% specificity for predicting failed MV weaning. Lymphocytes in BAL > 45/cc showed 56.6% sensitivity and 71.4% specificity for predicting failed MV weaning.Conclusion: Bronchial lavage cellular fluid analysis could bear prognostic information in ventilator associated pneumonia. Increased bronchoalveolar lavage neutrophils and lymphocytes showed increased rates of mortality and weaning failure in ventilator associated pneumonia.

  • Effect of Hypomagnesaemia on Critically Ill Patients: A Retrospective

    • Authors: Zeineldin; Khaled H.; Kandeel, Ahmed; Omar, Emad; Sabry, Sherif
      Abstract: imageBackground: Although many parameters have been investigated to reduce mortality in intensive care units (ICUs), hypomagnesemia management has not been well addressed. In the present study, we have examined the effect of serum magnesium levels and magnesium administration on clinical outcomes for critically ill patients. The general objectives of the study included the length of ICU stay, the requirement of mechanical ventilation, and the incidence of mortality.Methods: We planned a retrospective chart review of patients admitted to the ICU of Kasr Al-Ainy University Hospital from January 2011 to January 2015. We primarily relate magnesium levels with patient's outcomes regarding mortality, ICU stay, needs for mechanical ventilation, days on mechanical ventilation, and SOFA score.Results: A total of 114 patients were hypomagnesaemic (57%). Patients with hypomagnesemia were more likely to be associated with eclampsia, seizures, and other diseases (P = .024). Among hypomagnasaemic patients, there were 60 patients (52.6%) needed to be mechanically ventilated with mean period of 4.75 ± 3.29 days, while in normomagnesaemic patients, there were 28 patients (32.56%) needed to be mechanically ventilated with a mean period of 4.63 ± 2.8 days (P = .005). In hypomaganesaemic patients, the mean days of ICU stay was 7.27 ± 3.15 days, compared to 6.17 ± 3.52 for normomagnesaemic patients (P = .021). Among hypomagnesaemic patients, the mortality rate was 24.6%, compared to 30.2% in normomagnesaemic patient (P = .37).Conclusions: Hypomagnesemia is associated with significant increase in the risk of mechanical ventilation and prolonged ICU stay.

  • Study of Bradyarrhythmias in Acute Myocardial Infarction

    • Authors: Rafla; Samir; Ayad, Sherif Wagdy; Sanhoury, Mohamed
      Abstract: imageBackground: Arrhythmias after acute myocardial infarction are common. Bradyarrhythmias need specific insight into when and how to treat them.Objective: Is to delineate the incidence, course, and management of different types of bradyarrhythmia after acute myocardial infarction, study period was 5 years.Methods: Four hundred and fifty-three patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) were admitted to intensive care in 5 years. ECGs were analyzed for the presence of bradyarrhythmias and details of management.Results: Sixty-five patients with bradycardia were found. Sinus bradycardia in 40, sick sinus syndrome in 10, junctional rhythm in 10, second-degree block in 10, complete heart block in 24. We divided patients with sinus bradycardia into stable and unstable. Unstable sinus bradycardia is more prevalent in cases with hypotension or shock, slower heart rates, gross or transmural infarction, changeable morphology of the P wave, and inferior rather than anterior infarction. The indications and danger of atropine are defined. Complete heart block was found in 24 patients (0.053%). Thirteen were managed by drug therapy (isoprenaline, corticosteroids, and atropine); 11 were paced. Fourteen out of the 24 patients died (58%), the total mortality rate among the 453 patients was 22%. The prognostic factors of CHB were defined. Techniques of introducing lead in RV without fluoroscopy are described.Conclusions: Sinus bradycardia in AMI is accompanied by a lower incidence of mortality. Atropine is not a safe drug to be given as routine. Complete heart block predictors of mortality are the association with heart failure, early onset, and persistence of the block.

  • Role of Beta Blockers in Ameliorating Sympathetic Storming in Isolated
           Traumatic Brain Injury

    • Authors: Ismail; Amira Mohamed; Hablas, Ibrahim; Mohammed, Ahmed Abdel Aziz; Hak, Hazem Hossam E.L.din Abdel
      Abstract: imageBackground: Early propranolol administration may compensate the catecholamines elevation that occur due to sympathetic hyperactivity during the first week post trauma and this can improve the survival rates among patients.Objectives: Evaluating whether empiric early administration of propranolol in patients with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) impacts outcomes.Methods: This prospective case controlled study was conducted at the General ICU, Alexandria Main University Hospital among 100 patients who were diagnosed with isolated traumatic brain injury and were divided into two equal groups according to either received B-blockade or not. All the patients’ were submitted to full history taking, clinical diagnosis, and laboratory investigations. TBI was evaluated using Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and post-rescuscitation Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS).Results: The demographics’ and clinical characteristics’ including ICU stay and mechanical ventilation stay days of the studied groups showed no significant difference. There was no significant difference between the studied groups regarding the BB complications including hypotension, heart failure, and bradycardia. The mortality rates were significantly lower among patients who administrated BB. The incidence of undergoing craniectomy was significantly higher among group II than those who administrated BB.Conclusion: The early administration of B-blockade among isolated traumatic brain injury patients could reduce the in hospital mortality rates and decrease the rates of craniectomy suggesting that BB are essential for survival and functional recovery among TBI patients.
