Researchers conducted a study to determine whether the lactate dehydrogenase to albumin ratio is an independent prognostic factor predictive of in-hospital mortality in patients with lower respiratory tract infection.
Researchers conducted a study to compare outcomes among patients who underwent placement of either a midline or peripherally inserted central catheter due to either difficult vascular access or to receive antibiotic therapy.
Researchers conducted a study to assess the safety and efficacy of aminoglycosides or polymyxin monotherapy for the treatment of adults with complicated urinary tract infections caused by extensively drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Researchers conducted a study to assess the outcomes and antimicrobial resistant profiles of patients who received first-line therapy with ampicillin plus gentamicin for the treatment of neonatal sepsis.
Researchers conducted a study to determine the accuracy of a novel 29-messenger RNA blood-based host-response assay for identifying bacterial and viral infections in patients admitted to the emergency department.
Sepsis and septic shock are common oncologic emergencies that require vigilant, timely diagnosis and intervention. Timely and effective detection and treatment of these conditions are key to patient survival.
The researchers’ objective was to determine whether machine learning-derived estimated individual corticosteroid therapy effect yields better results than treat all or treat no one strategies in adult patients with septic shock.
