ABSTRACT

Introducción. El shock séptico es la manifestación más grave de sepsis con tasas de letalidad que pueden llegar hasta el 80%. En los últimos años, ha cobrado relevancia la diferencia arteriovenosa de dióxido de carbono, por su implicación teórica en el metabolismo anaerobio y su significado respecto del normal funcionamiento celular. Por lo antes mencionado, creemos necesario realizar un estudio que nos permita establecer la utilidad de la diferencia arteriovenosa de dióxido de carbono en el paciente con shock séptico de la unidad de cuidados intensivos, como medida indirecta de la perfusión tisular y de la utilización de oxígeno por los tejidos, que nos permita establecer un diagnóstico precoz y el pronóstico de los pacientes críticamente enfermos. Métodos. Estudio observacional, descriptivo y transversal. Muestra de veintiocho pacientes adultos. Resultados. Como se ha registrado en otras series, la mayor parte de los pacientes afectados por shock séptico, en nuestro estudio, fueron hombres mayores de 65 años, con al menos una comorbilidad, siendo el principal sitio de infección el respiratorio (67,9%), asociado a una alta tasa de mortalidad (67%). Conclusiones. Los pacientes con diferencia arteriovenosa de PCO2 mayor a 6 mmHg tienen un riesgo aumentado de muerte de 3,2 veces. (AU)


Introduction. Septic shock is the most serious manifestation of sepsis with mortality rates that can reach up to 80%. In recent years, the arteriovenous carbon dioxide difference has gained relevance, due to its theoretical implication in anaerobic metabolism and its significance with respect to normal cell function. Due to the aforementioned, we believe it is necessary to carry out a study that allows us to establish the usefulness of the arteriovenous carbon dioxide difference in the patient with septic shock in the intensive care unit as an indirect measure of tissue perfusion and utilization. of oxygen through the tissues, which allows us to establish an early diagnosis and prognosis of critically ill patients. Methods. Observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study. Sample of 28 adult patients. Results. As has been reported in other series, most of the patients affected by septic shock in our study were men over 65 years of age, with at least one comorbidity, the main site of infection being respiratory (67.9%), associated with a high mortality rate (67%) Conclusions. Patients with an arteriovenous PCO2 difference greater than 6 mmHg have a 3.2-fold increased risk of death. (AU)

ABSTRACT

La realización de pruebas de laboratorio en el lugar de atención del paciente (POCT) de equipos de gases en sangre representa un desafío continuo tanto para los usuarios como para el laboratorio. La vulnerabilidad al error y la amenaza del riesgo que rodea esta forma de trabajo obliga a establecer un sistema de trabajo robusto para la obtención de un "resultado confiable" cerca del paciente crítico. La formación de un grupo interdisciplinario, la capacitación de usuarios externos al laboratorio, el aseguramiento de la calidad analítica y la conectividad, son los cuatro pilares sobre los cuales se sostiene el éxito de esta nueva era de laboratorio clínico. Además es necesaria la reinvención de la imagen bioquímica, asumiendo un rol de líder, comunicador, asesor e integrado al sistema de salud (AU)


Point of care laboratory testing (POCT) with blood gas equipment is an ongoing challenge for both the users and the laboratory. The vulnerability to error and the threat of risk that surrounds this way of working necessitates the establishment of a robust working system to obtain "reliable results" for the critically ill patient. The creation of an interdisciplinary group, the training of external users, analytical quality assurance, and connectivity are the four pillars on which the success of this new era of clinical laboratories is based. It is also necessary to reinvent the biochemical image, assuming the role of leader, communicator, and advisor integrated into the health system (AU)

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effect of different fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2) baseline levels before endotracheal intubation on the time of expiratory oxygen concentration (EtO2) reaching the standard in emergency patients with the EtO2 as the monitoring index.@*METHODS@#A retrospective observational study was conducted. The clinical data of patients receiving endotracheal intubation in the emergency department of Peking Union Medical College Hospital from January 1 to November 1 in 2021 were enrolled. In order to avoid interference with the final result due to inadequate ventilation caused by non-standard operation or air leakage, the process of the continuous mechanical ventilation after FiO2 was adjusted to pure oxygen in patients who had been intubated was selected to simulate the process of mask ventilation under pure oxygen before intubation. Combined with the electronic medical record and the ventilator record, the changes of the time required to reach 0.90 of EtO2 (that was, the time required to reach the standard of EtO2) and the respiratory cycle required to reach the standard after adjusting FiO2 to pure oxygen under different baseline levels of FiO2 were analyzed.@*RESULTS@#113 EtO2 assay records were collected from 42 patients. Among them, 2 patients had only one EtO2 record due to the FiO2 baseline level of 0.80, while the rest had two or more records of EtO2 reaching time and respiratory cycle corresponding to different FiO2 baseline level. Among the 42 patients, most of them were male (59.5%), elderly [median age was 62 (40, 70) years old] patients with respiratory diseases (40.5%). There were significant differences in lung function among different patients, but the majority of patients with normal function [oxygenation index (PaO2/FiO2) > 300 mmHg (1 mmHg ≈ 0.133 kPa), 38.0%]. In the setting of ventilator parameters, combined with the slightly lower arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide of patients [33 (28, 37) mmHg], mild hyperventilation phenomenon was considered to be widespread. With the increased in FiO2 baseline level, the time of EtO2 reaching standard and the number of respiratory cycles showed a gradually decreasing trend. When the FiO2 baseline level was 0.35, the time of EtO2 reaching the standard was the longest [79 (52, 87) s], and the corresponding median respiratory cycle was 22 (16, 26) cycles. When the FiO2 baseline level was increased from 0.35 to 0.80, the median time of EtO2 reaching the standard was shortened from 79 (52, 78) s to 30 (21, 44) s, and the median respiratory cycle was also reduced from 22 (16, 26) cycles to 10 (8, 13) cycles, with statistically significant differences (both P < 0.05).@*CONCLUSIONS@#The higher the FiO2 baseline level of the mask ventilation in front of the endotracheal intubation in emergency patients, the shorter the time for EtO2 reaching the standard, and the shorter the mask ventilation time.

ABSTRACT

Las alteraciones de la relación entre la ventilación y el flujo sanguíneo (V/Q) en diversas regiones del pulmón alteran el aporte de oxígeno (O2) y remoción del dióxido de carbono (CO2) al organismo. Fisiológicamente existen diferencias regionales en la relación V/Q. Determinadas patologías pueden alterar esta relación, produciendo tres escenarios distintos: Cortocircuito (Shunt), Alteración V/Q y aumento del espacio muerto. Para evaluar estos escenarios y realizar una aproximación diagnostica son de utilidad el estudio de los gases arteriales y venosos, la diferencia alveolo arterial y la respuesta al suministrar O2


Alterations in the ventilation perfusion relationship (V/Q) in various lung regions alter the supply of oxygen (O2) and the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the body. Physiologically, there are regional differences in the V/Q ratio. Certain pathologies can alter this relationship, producing three different scenarios: Shunt, V/Q mismach and dead space increased. To evaluate these scenarios and carry out a diagnostic approach, it is useful to study arterial and venous gasometry, the alveolar arterial difference and the response to oxygen supplying.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Evaluation of montmorillonite for paraquat by in vitro and in vivo test. In vitro test were evaluated by a batch test, taking the paraquat concentration, adsorbents, reaction environment and time as indices, the absorption rate was screened by orthogonal design. In vivo test was executed with rabbits. Group 1: 4 rabbits dosed with montmorillonite. Group 2: 8 rabbits dosed with 200 mg/kg paraquat. Group 3: 6 rabbits dosed with 200 mg/kg paraquat then gavage with montmorillonite 5 min later. Group 4: 6 rabbits dosed with 200 mg/kg paraquat then gavage with montmorillonite 30 min later. Blood paraquat concentration, serum cytokines, blood gas analysis and histopathology of lung were implemented. In vitro test found that all the four factors influence the absorption rate of paraquat (P < 0.05). In vitro test found that oral montmorillonite could change toxicokinetics parameters of paraquat (P < 0.05); decrease raised serum TGF-ß1 and HMGB1 (P < 0.05) and alleviate the histopathology damage of lung. Montmorillonite might exert its protective effects on paraquat induced damage

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the application effects of feedforward control theory in the rollover bed treatment of mass patients with burn-explosion combined injury. Methods: A retrospective observational research was conducted. From June 13 to 14, 2020, 15 patients with severe burn-explosion combined injury caused by liquefied natural gas tank car explosion and conforming to the inclusion criteria were admitted to the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine. There were 13 males and 2 females, aged 33-92 (66±17) years. All the patients were treated with rollover bed from 48 h post admission, and the feedforward control theory was introduced, including establishing a special feedforward control management team for rollover bed, clarifying the duties of the medical staff in the rollover bed treatment of patients, implementing the cooperation strategy of multidisciplinary physician, training and examining for 80 nurses in the temporarily organized nurse team in the form of "rollover bed workshop", and formulating the checklist and valuation list of rollover bed treatment for continuous quality control. The frequency and the total number of turning over, and successful rate of one-time posture change with the rollover bed of patients within 30 days of admission were recorded, the occurrences of adverse events caused by improper operation for the rollover bed during the treatment were observed, including respiratory and cardiac arrests, treatment interruption, unplanned extubation, bed falling, and skin graft displacement. The lowest levels of arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) and arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2), the number of patients with oxygenation index>300 mmHg (1 mmHg=0.133 kPa), and the occurrence of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) of patients within 2 days of admission and on the 30th day of admission were recorded. Results: Within 30 days of admission, the patients were turned over with the rollover bed for 2 to 6 times each day, with a total of 1 320 turning over operations, the successful rate of one-time posture change reached 99.9% (1 319/1 320), and no adverse event occurred. Within 2 days of admission, the lowest levels of PaO2 and PaCO2 of the patients were (100±19) and (42±4) mmHg, respectively, and the number of patients with mild, moderate, and severe ARDS were 10, 2, and 3, respectively, and none of the patients had oxygenation index>300 mmHg. On the 30th day of admission, the lowest levels of PaO2 and PaCO2 of the patients were (135±28) and (37±8) mmHg, respectively, 3 patients developed moderate ARDS, 1 patient developed severe ARDS, and 11 patients had oxygenation index>300 mmHg. Conclusions: The introduction of feedforward control theory in the treatment of rollover bed of mass patients with burn-explosion combined injury can ensure safe and successful completion of turning over with the rollover bed, promote the repair of burn wound, and improve respiratory function, and therefore improve the treatment quality of patients.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Las alteraciones del equilibrio ácido-base pueden ser de carácter primario. En la mayoría de los casos dependen de la complicación de una enfermedad preexistente. La frecuencia de estos trastornos es elevada, especialmente, en enfermos hospitalizados en las unidades de atención al paciente grave. Su aparición conlleva implicaciones pronósticas significativas. Objetivo: Sistematizar sobre el estado actual del manejo del equilibrio ácido-base. Método: Se realizó una revisión bibliográfica en la que se utilizaron las herramientas del método científico. Se examinó toda la bibliografía disponible publicada en los últimos cinco años y así, elaborar una síntesis crítica, acorde al criterio y las competencias de los autores sobre la temática. Resultados: Se expone la importancia de la evaluación clínica, que unida a los niveles de PCO2, y de exceso o déficit de bases en una gasometría arterial, permiten identificar el trastorno ácido base existente. Igualmente, se destaca que el CO2 tiene una función clave en el control de la ventilación, así como las modificaciones que produce al flujo sanguíneo cerebral, el pH y el tono adrenérgico. Otro aspecto importante fue la reciente práctica clínica de la "hipercapnia permisiva" para reducir el metabolismo tisular y de esta manera, mejorar la función del surfactante e impedir la nitración de las proteínas. Conclusiones: El manejo de los desequilibrios ácido-base debe ser del dominio de todos los profesionales vinculados a la asistencia médica, pues el retraso de su diagnóstico puede empeorar la evolución y el pronóstico de los pacientes graves(AU)


Introduction: Acid-base balance alterations can be of a primary nature. In most cases, they depend on the complication of a pre-existing disease. The frequency of these disorders is high, especially in patients hospitalized in critical care units. Its appearance carries significant prognostic implications. Objective: To systematize the current state of acid-base balance management. Method: A bibliographic review was carried out, for which the tools of the scientific method were used. All the available bibliography, published in the last five years, was examined; thus, a critical synthesis was prepared, according to the criteria and competences of the authors regarding the subject. Results: The importance of the clinical evaluation is exposed, which, together with PCO2 levels as well as excess or deficit of bases in an arterial blood gas, allow to identify the existing acid-base disorder. Likewise, it is highlighted that CO2 has a key function in ventilation control, together with the modifications it produces on cerebral blood flow, pH and adrenergic tone. Another important aspect was the recent clinical practice of "permissive hypercapnia" to reduce tissue metabolism and thus improve surfactant function and prevent protein nitration. Conclusions: The management of acid-base imbalances should be mastered by all professionals associated to medical care, since any delay in its diagnosis can worsen the evolution and prognosis of seriously ill patients(AU)

ABSTRACT

RESUMO Objetivo: Comparar o comportamento dos índices de troca gasosa conforme o uso de alvos de oxigenação liberais em comparação a conservadores em pacientes com síndrome do desconforto respiratório agudo moderada a grave secundária à COVID-19 e em uso de ventilação mecânica; avaliar a influência da FiO2 elevada na mecânica do sistema respiratório. Métodos: Foram incluídos prospectivamente pacientes consecutivos com idades acima de 18 anos, diagnóstico de COVID-19 e síndrome do desconforto respiratório agudo moderada e grave. Para cada paciente, aplicou-se aleatoriamente dois protocolos de FiO2 para obter SpO2 de 88% a 92% ou 96%. Avaliaram-se os índices de oxigenação e a mecânica do sistema respiratório. Resultados: Foram incluídos 15 pacientes. Todos seus índices foram significantemente afetados pela estratégia de FiO2 (p < 0,05). A proporção PaO2/FiO2 deteriorou, o PA-aO2 aumentou e o Pa/AO2 diminuiu significantemente com a utilização de FiO2 para obter SpO2 96%. Opostamente, a fração de shunt funcional foi reduzida. A mecânica respiratória não foi afetada pela estratégia de FiO2. Conclusão: Uma estratégia com alvos liberais de oxigenação deteriorou significantemente os índices de troca gasosa, com exceção do shunt funcional, em pacientes com síndrome do desconforto respiratório agudo relacionada à COVID-19. A mecânica do sistema respiratório não foi alterada pela estratégia de FiO2. Registro Clinical Trials: NCT04486729.


ABSTRACT Objective: To compare gas exchange indices behavior by using liberal versus conservative oxygenation targets in patients with moderate to severe acute respiratory distress syndrome secondary to COVID-19 under invasive mechanical ventilation. We also assessed the influence of high FiO2 on respiratory system mechanics. Methods: We prospectively included consecutive patients aged over 18 years old with a diagnosis of COVID-19 and moderate-severe acute respiratory distress syndrome. For each patient, we randomly applied two FiO2 protocols to achieve SpO2 88% - 92% or 96%. We assessed oxygenation indices and respiratory system mechanics. Results: We enrolled 15 patients. All the oxygenation indices were significantly affected by the FiO2 strategy (p < 0.05) selected. The PaO2/FiO2 deteriorated, PA-aO2 increased and Pa/AO2 decreased significantly when using FiO2 to achieve SpO2 96%. Conversely, the functional shunt fraction was reduced. Respiratory mechanics were not affected by the FiO2 strategy. Conclusion: A strategy aimed at liberal oxygenation targets significantly deteriorated gas exchange indices, except for functional shunt, in COVID-19-related acute respiratory distress syndrome. The respiratory system mechanics were not altered by the FiO2 strategy. Clinical Trials Register: NCT04486729.

ABSTRACT

Urolithiasis has a high incidence among confined sheep. It is multifactorial and may cause economic damage. Our aim was to determine the capacity of urinary acidification using ammonium chloride in sheep. Twenty-five 3-month-old male sheep were confined and randomly divided into three groups; the G200 and G500 groups received 200mg/kg/GW and 500mg/kg/GW of ammonium chloride daily for 56 consecutive days, respectively, whereas the CG group did not receive ammonium chloride. Sampling times and clinical evaluation were performed weekly, starting from the 14th day of confinement (M1 or immediately before administering ammonium chloride) until the 17th day (M9) of the feedlot. Hemogasometry, biochemical examination of serum urea and creatinine concentration and ultrasound evaluation of the urinary tract were performed. The urinalysis indicated a higher incidence of ammonium magnesium phosphate crystals at the beginning of the study, showing a migration to urate crystal formation, mainly in the G500 group because of urinary acidification. No hemogasometric, serum biochemistry, ruminal fluid, or ultrasonographic changes were observed. Urinary acidification was achieved and maintained after M7 during the administration of ammonium chloride in the G500 group, but not in the other study groups.(AU)


A urolitíase apresenta alta incidência em ovinos confinados, etiologia multifatorial, e pode causar prejuízo econômico. O objetivo do presente estudo foi determinar a capacidade da acidificação urinária mediante o uso de cloreto de amônio em ovinos. Foram utilizados 25 ovinos de três meses de idade, confinados e divididos aleatoriamente em três grupos: grupo CG (controle) não recebeu cloreto de amônio; grupo G200 (200mg/kg/PV) recebeu cloreto de amônio por 56 dias consecutivos; grupo G500 (500mg/kg/PV) recebeu cloreto de amônio por 56 dias consecutivos, administrados diariamente por via oral. Os momentos (M) de colheita de amostras e de avaliação clínica foram realizados com intervalo de sete dias, sendo M1 (imediatamente antes do cloreto de amônio), M2 (sete dias após) até M9, totalizando 70 dias de confinamento. Foram realizadas hemogasometria, concentração sérica de ureia e creatinina e avaliação ultrassonográfica do trato urinário. Na urinálise, houve uma maior incidência de cristais de fosfato amônio magnesiano no início do estudo, com migração para formação de cristais de urato, principalmente no G500, devido à acidificação urinária. Não houve alterações hemogasométricas, na bioquímica sérica, no líquido ruminal, ou alterações ultrassonográficas. A acidificação urinária foi obtida e mantida a partir do M7 durante a administração do cloreto de amônio no grupo G500, não ocorrendo nos outros grupos de estudo.(AU)

ABSTRACT

La gasometría arterial es fundamental en el diagnóstico y manejo del medio interno. El objetivo es caracterizar los valores de gasometría arterial en gestantes sanas con embarazo normoevolutivo residentes a 4 150 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Serie de casos llevada a cabo durante la gestión 2019, la cual incluye pacientes sin clínica ni antecedentes de enfermedades cardiopulmonares o hematológicas, así como ausencia de tabaquismo y residencia de al menos los últimos 6 meses. Se incluye 30 pacientes, media de edad 25.23 años (desvío estándar 3.69), con edad gestacional media de 26 semanas (desvío estándar 5.5). El valor de pH tiende a ser más alto, así como los valores de PaO2, PaCO2, HCO3 y SatpO2% son más bajos, incluso en comparación con adultos sanos residentes de la misma altitud. Existe cierta tendencia positiva hacia el incremento progresivo del pH mientras la edad gestacional avanza. La gasometría arterial en la altura, debe ser interpretada con suma precaución en relación a las condiciones barométricas, proporcionándose así, valiosa información con aplicación a la obstetricia crítica a muy alta altitud.

Series case performed during 2019, including patients without a clinical features or antecedents of cardiopulmonary or hematological diseases as well as absence of smoking and residence for at least the last 6 months. Thirty patients are included, mean age 25.23 years (standard deviation 3.69), with average gestational age of 26 weeks (standard deviation 5.5). The pH tends to be higher, as well as the values of PaO2, PaCO2, HCO3 and SatpO2% are lower, even compared to healthy adults living at the same altitude. There is some positive trend towards progressive pH is higher such as gestational age progresses. Arterial gas blood analysis at altitude, should be interpreted with extreme caution in relation to barometric conditions, thus providing, valuable information to critical care obstetrics at very high altitude

ABSTRACT

RESUMO Objetivo: Identificar a existência de associação entre os valores de driving pressure e mechanical power e do índice de oxigenação no primeiro dia de ventilação mecânica com a mortalidade de pacientes vítimas de trauma sem diagnóstico de síndrome do desconforto respiratório agudo. Métodos: Foram incluídos pacientes ventilados em modo de pressão ou volume controlado, com coleta de dados 24 horas após sua intubação orotraqueal. O acompanhamento do paciente foi realizado por 30 dias para obter o desfecho clínico. Os pacientes estiveram internados em duas unidades de terapia intensiva do Hospital de Pronto Socorro de Porto Alegre, no período de junho a setembro de 2019. Resultados: Foram avaliados 24 pacientes. Os valores de driving pressure, mechanical power e do índice de oxigenação foram similares entre os pacientes que sobreviveram e os que tiveram desfecho de óbito, sem diferença estatisticamente significativa entre os grupos. Conclusão: Os valores de driving pressure, mechanical power e índice de oxigenação obtidos no primeiro dia de ventilação mecânica não demonstraram ter associação com a mortalidade de pacientes vítimas de trauma sem síndrome do desconforto respiratório agudo.


ABSTRACT Objective: To identify the possible association between driving pressure and mechanical power values and oxygenation index on the first day of mechanical ventilation with the mortality of trauma patients without a diagnosis of acute respiratory distress syndrome. Methods: Patients under pressure-controlled or volume-controlled ventilation were included, with data collection 24 hours after orotracheal intubation. Patient follow-up was performed for 30 days to obtain the clinical outcome. The patients were admitted to two intensive care units of the Hospital de Pronto Socorro de Porto Alegre from June to September 2019. Results: A total of 24 patients were evaluated. Driving pressure, mechanical power and oxygenation index were similar among patients who survived and those who died, with no statistically significant difference between groups. Conclusion: Driving pressure, mechanical power and oxygenation index values obtained on the first day of mechanical ventilation were not associated with mortality of trauma patients without acute respiratory distress syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Hemodynamic monitoring of a critically ill patient is an indispensable tool both inside and outside intensive care; we currently have invasive, minimally invasive and non-invasive devices; however, no device has been shown to have a positive impact on the patient's evolution; arterial and venous blood gases provide information on the patient's actual microcirculatory and metabolic status and may be a hemodynamic monitoring tool. We aimed to carry out a non-systematic review of the literature of hemodynamic monitoring carried out through the variables obtained in arterial and venous blood gases. A non-systematic review of the literature was performed in the PubMed, OvidSP and ScienceDirect databases with selection of articles from 2000 to 2019. It was found that there are variables obtained in arterial and venous blood gases such as central venous oxygen saturation (SvcO2), venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide pressure (Δpv-aCO2), venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide pressure/arteriovenous oxygen content difference (Δpv-aCO2/ΔCavO2) that are related to cellular oxygenation, cardiac output (CO), microcirculatory veno-arterial flow and anaerobic metabolism and allow to assess tissue perfusion status. In conclusion, the variables obtained by arterial and venous blood gases allow for non-invasive, accessible and affordable hemodynamic monitoring that can guide medical decision-making in critically ill patients.


Resumen El monitoreo hemodinámico de un paciente en estado crítico es una herramienta indispensable tanto dentro como fuera de la terapia intensiva; actualmente se cuenta con dispositivos invasivos, mínimamente invasivos y no invasivos; sin embargo, ningún dispositivo ha demostrado tener impacto positivo en la evolución del paciente; la gasometría arterial y venosa proporcionan información del estado microcirculatorio y metabólico real del paciente pudiendo ser una herramienta de monitoreo hemodinámico. El objetivo de esta revisión fue realizar una revisión no sistemática de la literatura del monitoreo hemodinámico realizado mediante las variables obtenidas en la gasometría arterial y venosa. Se estudiaron las bases de datos de PubMed, OvidSP y ScienceDirect con selección de artículos del 2000 al 2019. Se encontró que hay variables obtenidas en la gasometría arterial y venosa como la saturación venosa central de oxígeno (SvcO2), la diferencia de presión venoarterial de dióxido de carbono (Δpv-aCO2), la diferencia de presión venoarterial de dióxido de carbono/diferencia del contenido arteriovenoso de oxígeno (Δpv-aCO2/ΔCa-vO2) que están relacionadas con la oxigenación celular, con el gasto cardiaco (GC), con el flujo venoarterial microcirculatorio y con el metabolismo anaerobio que permiten realizar una valoración del estado de perfusión tisular. En conclusión, las variables obtenidas por gasometría arterial y venosa permiten realizar un monitoreo hemodinámico no invasivo, accesible y asequible que pueden guiar la toma de decisiones médicas en el paciente en estado crítico.

ABSTRACT

El trauma continúa siendo una de las primeras causas de muertes prevenibles en nuestro país. A pesar de la disminución del trauma militar, la incidencia que abarca todas las formas de trauma continúa siendo alta y congestiona los servicios de urgencias, por eso es fundamental el adecuado enfoque inicial para disminuir la mortalidad. Tradicionalmente, se han utilizado marcadores, como los signos vitales, para la identificación del choque hemorrágico, pero estudios observacionales de gran escala han demostrado cómo estos muchas veces no logran identificar a los pacientes con choque hemorrágico, haciendo necesario usar marcadores más objetivos, como los gases arteriales, con la medición del lactato y el déficit de base, que según literatura tienen mejor predicción de mortalidad, identificación temprana del choque y activación temprana de protocolos transfusionales


Trauma continues to be one of the lead causes of preventable deaths in our country. Even with the decrease of military trauma, the incidence of trauma remains high, dominating the emergency room. The initial approach is fundamental to decrease mortality. Traditionally, vital signs have been used as a marker of hemorrhage shock, but observational studies of high volumes of patients showed how those often can't identify patients with hemorrhage shock, which makes necessary more objective markers such as the blood gas with the measure of lactate and base deficit, which has proven useful in the prediction of mortality, early identification of shock and a faster activation of transfusion protocols

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) can be a devastating condition in children with cancer and alveolar recruitment maneuvers (ARMs) can theoretically improve oxygenation and survival. The study aimed to assess the feasibility of ARMs in critically ill children with cancer and ARDS. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 31 maneuvers in a series of 12 patients (median age of 8.9 years) with solid tumors (n=4), lymphomas (n=2), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (n=2), and acute myeloid leukemia (n=4). Patients received positive end-expiratory pressure from 25 up to 40 cmH20, with a delta pressure of 15 cmH2O for 60 seconds. We assessed blood gases pre- and post-maneuvers, as well as ventilation parameters, vital signs, hemoglobin, clinical signs of pulmonary bleeding, and radiological signs of barotrauma. Pre- and post-values were compared by the Wilcoxon test. Results: Median platelet count was 53,200/mm3. Post-maneuvers, mean arterial pressure decreased more than 20% in two patients, and four needed an increase in vasoactive drugs. Hemoglobin levels remained stable 24 hours after ARMs, and signs of pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, or subcutaneous emphysema were absent. Fraction of inspired oxygen decreased significantly after ARMs (FiO2; p=0.003). Oxygen partial pressure (PaO2)/FiO2 ratio increased significantly (p=0.0002), and the oxygenation index was reduced (p=0.01), but all these improvements were transient. Recruited patients' 28-day mortality was 58%. Conclusions: ARMs, although feasible in the context of thrombocytopenia, lead only to transient improvements, and can cause significant hemodynamic instability.


RESUMO Objetivo: A síndrome do desconforto respiratório agudo (SDRA) pode ser uma condição devastadora em crianças com câncer e as manobras de recrutamento alveolar (MRA) podem melhorar a oxigenação e a sobrevida. O objetivo foi avaliar a viabilidade das MRA em crianças gravemente doentes com câncer e SDRA. Métodos: Analisamos retrospectivamente 31 manobras em 12 pacientes (idade mediana de 8,9 anos), com tumores sólidos (n=4), linfomas (n=2) e leucemias linfoide (n=2) e mieloide agudas (n=4). Os pacientes receberam pressão expiratória final positiva de 25 a 40 cmH20, com delta de pressão de 15 cmH2O por 60 segundos. Gasometrias foram analisadas pré e pós-manobras, bem como os parâmetros de ventilação, sinais vitais, hemoglobina, sinais clínicos de sangramento pulmonar e sinais radiológicos de barotrauma. Valores foram comparados com o teste de Wilcoxon. Resultados: A contagem mediana de plaquetas era de 53.200/mm3. Após as manobras, em dois pacientes, a pressão arterial média declinou mais de 20%, e quatro necessitaram de aumento de drogas vasoativas. A hemoglobina permaneceu estável 24 horas após a MRA, sem sinais de pneumotórax, pneumomediastino ou enfisema subcutâneo. Houve diminuição significativa nas frações inspiradas de oxigênio (FiO2; p=0,003). A relação pressão arterial de oxigênio (PaO2)/FiO2 aumentou (p=0,002), e o índice de oxigenação caiu (p=0,01), mas essas melhoras foram transitórias. A mortalidade em 28 dias foi de 58%. Conclusões: As MRA, embora viáveis no contexto da trombocitopenia, levam apenas a melhorias transitórias e podem causar instabilidade hemodinâmica significativa.

ABSTRACT The objective was to map knowledge about the use of a 25% glucose solution in pain relief in newborns during arterial and venous puncture. This is a scoping review. It was conducted during August 2020 in eight data sources (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Literatura Latino-Americana e do Caribe em Ciências da Saúde, Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online, SciVerse Scopus, Web of Science, Scientific Electronic Library Online, Cochrane Library, and Theses and Dissertations Catalog), as well as in an electronic search engine. Eleven studies were selected, which corroborate the use of 25% glucose as a non-pharmacological measure to reduce pain in Newborns, evidencing its analgesic effect from the reduction of the scores in the scales that assess pain. Regarding use, it was noticed that most employed 2 mL of this solution, via oral route, two minutes before the procedure. The non-pharmacological measures are low-cost and easy to use. The 25% glucose solution is seen as a gold-standard method for pain relief in Newborns. This study provided additional scientific basis by showing that the use of a 25% glucose solution is beneficial in relieving pain in newborns during arterial and venous puncture, especially when associated with other techniques. The study elucidates the health actions for the management of neonatal pain and contributes to fostering scientific visibility and relevance regarding the theme.

ABSTRACT

Blood transfusion is a tool capable of saving lives. Patients undergoing blood transfusion usually present several alterations in the acid-base and electrolyte balance, aggravating the condition of critically ill patients. Some studies have demonstrated haematological alterations in certain species that received whole blood transfusions, however, few studies have evaluated acid base and electrolyte changes in dogs undergoing whole blood haemotherapy. The aim of this study was to analyze clinical, hematological, blood gas and electrolyte changes in anemic dogs after whole blood transfusion. Twenty nine dogs transfused due to anemia were enrolled in the study. Donors blood was collected in a transfusion bag containing citrate phosphate adenine dextrose and stored up to 24 h. Blood collections and evaluations were made before and 24 h after the transfusion. Data distribution normality was tested by the Shapiro Wilk Test. The means of the variables were compared by paired t-test. It was observed an increase in diastolic blood pressure and a reduction in heart rate (P < 0.05). There was a not significant increase in systolic blood pressure, temperature, and a reduction in respiratory rate per minute. Erythrocyte, haemoglobin and haematocrit averages were significantly increased after blood transfusion (P < 0.05). It was observed a reduction in the mean values of pH (P < 0.05), potassium (P > 0.05) and ionized calcium (P > 0.05) and an increase in the mean partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2 ) (P < 0.001), bicarbonate (P > 0.05) and sodium (P < 0.05). The probable cause of anemia was monocytic ehrlichiosis (14/29), visceral leishmaniasis (1/29), babesiosis (1/29), co-infection of Ehrlichia canis and Leishmania infantum (2/29), co-infection of E. canis and Babesia vogeli (1/29). It was not possible to determine the etiology of the anemia in ten dogs. Heart rate significantly reduced after transfusion, probably because of the increase in hematocrit, hemoglobin and erythrocyte values. It may be justified by the displacement of extravascular fluid to the intravascular space. Mean values of systolic blood pressure were slightly elevated before transfusion and remained elevated afterwards, while diastolic and mean arterial pressure increased significantly after transfusion. These changes may be due to the morbid condition and may be influenced by many other factors. Haematocrit, haemoglobin and erythrocyte values increased significantly after transfusion, according to what was observed in other studies. The significant reduction in pH and increase in pCO2 reflects the compensatory mechanism for metabolic acidosis to increase ventilation, leading to pCO2 reduction and changes in pH. The reduction in pH due to the contact of the collected blood with conservative solutions is one of the main changes thar occurs during blood storage. It was described significantly lower pH in dogs' whole blood samples stored for more than 24 h in vacutainer plastic containing CPDA-1. We may assume there was no intense pH reduction in the present study because the bags were stored for up to 24 h. Although not statistically significant, the increase of pO2 mean reflects the improvement of tissue oxygen perfusion. It was observed a significant increase in sodium ions. The mean sodium ion concentration before transfusion was very close to the maximum reference value. Hyperkalaemia was not observed, nor was there significant reduction of potassium ions after transfusion. Several studies report hyperkalaemia and transfusion-associated cardiac arrests in humans, associated with infusion of large volumes of blood. Whole blood transfusion increased erythrogram values and did not negatively affect the electrolyte or acid-base status, representing a safe and useful tool in the intensive care of small animals.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: The control of metabolic acidosis in dialysis patients focuses on the supply of bicarbonate during the dialysis session, and it is not standard in all hemodialysis to assess serum bicarbonate concentrations. Bicarbonate expressed in blood gas analysis is the most sensitive standard of analysis and it is measured indirectly, using the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation. There are no studies in this population evaluating the concordance between the calculated bicarbonate with the direct method of biochemical analysis. The aim of this study was to analyze the concordance between the measured and calculated serum bicarbonate levels using blood gas analysis. Methods: We analyzed blood samples from chronic kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis, using the same sample of bicarbonate analysis by biochemistry and gasometry. The concordance was assessed using the Bland-Altman method. Results: 51 samples were analyzed. The analysis revealed a high correlation (r = 0.73) and a mean difference (bias) of 1.15 ± 3 mmol/L. The median time between collection and examination was 241 minutes. Discussion: We can conclude that the biochemical bicarbonate analysis compared to that calculated from blood gas analysis in chronic renal patients was consistent. For greater concordance between the data, it is important that the time between the collection of the samples and the referral to the laboratory for carrying out the dosages does not exceed four hours. The serum bicarbonate dosage can result in cost savings when compared to that of bicarbonate in blood gas analysis.


Resumo Introdução: O controle da acidose metabólica em pacientes dialíticos está voltado, principalmente, para o suprimento de bicarbonato durante a sessão de diálise, não sendo padrão em todas as hemodiálises avaliar as concentrações séricas do bicarbonato. O bicarbonato expresso na gasometria é considerado o padrão mais sensível de análise e é medido indiretamente por meio da equação de Henderson-Hasselbalch. Não há estudos nessa população avaliando a concordância do bicarbonato calculado com o método direto de análise bioquímica. O objetivo deste estudo é analisar a concordância entre o bicarbonato sérico medido e o calculado por meio da gasometria. Métodos: Foram analisadas amostras de sangue de pacientes renais crônicos em hemodiálise sendo feito na mesma amostra de análise do bicarbonato pela bioquímica e análise pela gasometria. A concordância foi avaliada pelo método de Bland-Altman. Resultados: Foram analisados um total de 51 amostras. A análise de correlação revelou alta correlação (r = 0.73) e a diferença média (bias) de 1.15 ± 3 mmol/L. O tempo mediano entre a realização da coleta e do exame foi de 241 minutos. Discussão: Podemos concluir que a realização da dosagem bioquímica do bicarbonato comparada com a calculada a partir da gasometria em pacientes renais crônicos foi concordante. Para maior concordância entre os dados, é importante que o tempo entre a coleta das amostras e o encaminhamento ao laboratório para a realização das dosagens não exceda quatro horas. A dosagem do bicarbonato sérico pode resultar numa economia de custos comparada à do bicarbonato da gasometria.
