Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy
Claudio Ronco, John A. Kellume altri
editore: Oxford University Press Inc
Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) is the standard of care for management of critically ill patients with acute renal failure. Part of the Pittsburgh Critical Care series, Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy provides concise, evidence-based, bedside guidance about this treatment modality, offering quick reference answers to clinicians' questions about treatments and situations encountered in daily practice. Organized into sections on theory, practice, special situations, and organizational issues, this volume provides a complete view of CRRT theory and practice. Tables summarize and highlight key points, and key studies and trials are included in each chapter. The second edition has been updated to include a new chapter on the use of biomarkers to aid in patient selection and timing, extensive revisions on terminology and nomenclature to match current standards, and the most up-to-date information on newly developed CRRT machines.
Acute Renal Failure in the Critically
Claudio Ronco, Rinaldo Bellomo
editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K
Over the last 10 years the syndrome of severe acute renal failure has progressively changed in its epidemiology. It is now most frequently seen in critically ill patients, typically in the context of sepsis and multiorgan failure. This epidemiologic change has meant that intensive care physicians and nephrologists must now work in close cooperation at all times and must take many com- plex issues of prevention, pathogenesis, and management into account that they did not previously have to tackle. Simultaneously, the last 10 years have seen the development of major technical and conceptual changes in the field of renal replacement therapy. There are now previously unavailable therapeutic options that provide physicians with a flexible and rapidly evolving armamentarium. The nutrition of these patients, previously limited by the par- tial efficacy of renal replacement therapies, has also become more aggressive and more in tune with the needs of critically ill patients. Increased understanding of the pathogenesis of the multi- organ failure syndrome has focused on the role of many soluble "mediators of injury" (cytokines, leukotrienes, prostanoids etc.). These molecules are likely to participate in the pathogenesis of acute renal failure. Their generation and disposal is also affected by different techniques of artificial renal support.
Textbook of Rapid Response Systems
Concept and Implementation
Ken Hillman, Michael A. DeVitae altri
editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
Successor to the editors' groundbreaking book on medical emergency teams, Textbook of Rapid Response Systems addresses the problem of patient safety and quality of care; the logistics of creating an RRS (resource allocation, process design, workflow, and training); the implementation of an RRS (organizational issues, challenges); and the evaluation of program results. Based on successful RRS models that have resulted in reduced in-hospital cardiac arrest and overall hospital death rates, this book is a practical guide for physicians, hospital administrators, and other healthcare professionals who wish to initiate an RRS program within their own institutions.
