Device developed for sepsis therapy

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Photo: Genetically engineered protein-coated magnetic beads bound to S. aureus [16/09/2014] Things can go downhill fast when a patient has sepsis, a life-threatening condition in which bacteria or fungi multiply in a patient's blood - often too fast for antibiotics to help. A new device inspired by the human spleen and developed by a team at Harvard's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering may radically transform the way doctors treat sepsis.Device developed for sepsis therapy - Read more

Hospitals: many small measures against infections and sepsis

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/08/2014] If neither the immune system nor antibiotics are able to control an infection, a sepsis can arise out of it – an infection that attacks several organs at the same time and causes the immune system to overreact. This is a life-threatening condition.Hospitals: many small measures against infections and sepsis - Read more

Hygiene: “The sensor applies the principle of so-called ‘photonic structures‘“

[01/08/2014] Detecting infections quickly and reliably with the naked eye: This is what many doctors in hospitals and in the doctor's surgeries wish for. To make this dream come true, Prof. Dr. Holger Schönherr, a scientist from Siegen, is researching a sensor that should show an infection by a color change.Hygiene: “The sensor applies the principle of so-called ‘photonic structures‘“ - Read more

Multi-resistant bacteria want to conquer the world

[01/08/2014] Bacteria lurk everywhere: on the skin, in the intestines and in every puddle. Most of them that are hanging out in the human body are good bacteria. But not all of them. Those pathogens that exhibit resistance and are thus very hard to combat are the most dangerous kind. Their spread threatens people all over the world.Multi-resistant bacteria want to conquer the world - Read more

[01/06/2012] Blood poisoning is a serious problem in medical care. Research from Malmö University in Sweden now shows that the protein suPAR, which can be used for early detection of critical cases of sepsis, is found in saliva, which opens new potential for tracking diseases.Sepsis: Protein in Saliva for New Diagnostic Methods - Read more

The Slightly Different Kind of Flu: Pneumonia as reflected in modern medicine

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/04/2012] Pneumonia is a classic among infectious diseases. Hippocrates already described an illness whose symptoms included coughing followed by pneumonia but today would more resemble an influenza virus. Sir William Osler, considered to be the father of modern medicine, characterized it as “Captain of the Men of Death“ at the start of the 20th century. And what about today?The Slightly Different Kind of Flu: Pneumonia as reflected in modern medicine - Read more

Septic Shock Patients: Fever Control Using External Cooling Reduces Mortality

[20/02/2012] Fever control using external cooling in sedated patients with septic shock is safe and decreases vasopressor requirements and early mortality, according to a new study from researchers in France.Septic Shock Patients: Fever Control Using External Cooling Reduces Mortality - Read more

Diagnosis Sepsis: “The risk of patients dying from sepsis increases the longer the diagnosis takes”

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/02/2012] On the website of the German Sepsis Society (Deutsche Sepsis-Gesellschaft) you can find the following definition for the disease called sepsis: A modern definition of sepsis was published in 1989 by Bone. He wrote: Sepsis is defined as an invasion of microorganisms and / or their toxins into the blood stream along with the reaction of the organism to the invasion.Diagnosis Sepsis: “The risk of patients dying from sepsis increases the longer the diagnosis takes” - Read more

Sepsis: On The Killer’s Trail

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/03/2009] Sepsis, better known as blood poisoning, kills almost as many people as heart attacks do each year. This is due to the fact that it is often diagnosed too late and, moreover, wrongly treated. New tests are to change that. Sepsis: On The Killer’s Trail - Read more

[29/01/2007] A large study recommends that clinicians should strictly control calorie intake, start artificial nutrition within 24 hours and regularly monitor liver function in critically ill patients suffering from sepsis or multiple organ failure.Critical Patients: Early Feeding May Reduce Liver Dysfunction - Read more
