570 adult mechanically ventilated and enterally fed patients were enrolled
Single ICU: cluster-crossover trial. Three pods in a single ICU each randomized to one of 3 regimens for 4 months with rolling crossover.
Participants were randomly allocated to:
A-One coloxyl with senna BD from day one, OR
B-Two coloxyl with senna + 20ml lactulose BD from day 3, OR
C-Two coloxyl with senna + 20ml lactulose BD from day 6

Patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure (PaO2:FiO2 ratio ≤300mmHg) frequently require intubation in the intensive care unit.
Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) in the acute setting is associated with a high risk of life-threatening complications. Severe hypoxaemia (SpO2<80% for ≥5sec) occurs in 20-25% of patients and is associated with hypoxia-driven cardiac arrest.

@jdianti El shock séptico es una entidad de elevada prevalencia y mortalidad y reanimación precoz y adecuada son factores claves para prevenir la progresión de la FMO y muerte en estos pacientes. 1/13
La #SSC sugiere utilizar el clearance de lactato como un objetivo de reanimación. Sin embargo, la su utilidad como guía en la reanimación está discutida

Hypoxaemia is a potential contributing factor in peri-procedural cardiac arrest and death. RSIs involve delay of 45-90 secs between administration of drugs and laryngoscopy, during which time patient becomes apnoeic.
There are concerns that bag-mask ventilation between induction and laryngoscopy may increase aspiration risk. Previous studies to investigate this have been limited to healthy anaesthetised volunteers.

The ANDROMEDA- SHOCK Randomised Clinical Trial
Thoughts by @z_cepillo…
Multicentre (28) open label RCT to determine if peripheral perfusion targeted resuscitation during early septic shock in adults is more effective than a lactate-targeted resuscitation for reducing mortality.
Inclusion criteria: adult patients with septic shock (infection, lactate >2, vasopressors to maintain MAP >65mmHg after IV fluid of 20ml/kg over 60 mins.
