What Are the Factors Affecting on the Mortality of COPD Patients in the ICU?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.593
Synopsis: 
Morbidity and mortality rates of COPD are continuously increasing throughout the world. We aimed to determine factors associated with in-hospital-mortality of all causes following critical care admissions of patients with COPD. Features during admission to the ICU of patients were studied such as demographic and clinical features, laboratory analyses and comorbid diseases. Co-morbid diseases such as CHF, AF and postoperative care affect mortality the most in COPD patients who are hospitalized in ICU. Laboratory tests like creatinine and clinical features like being intubated upon admission, duration of mechanical ventilation and EF are other independent variables that affect mortality.

ABSTRACT

Background: Morbidity and mortality rates of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are continuously increasing throughout the world. It is a major cause of death, imposes a great socioeconomic burden and constitutes a significant part of ICU patients.

Aim: To determine factors associated with in-hospital-mortality of all causes following   critical care admissions of patients with COPD.

The Effect of Three Different Applications on Rocuronium Injection Pain: A Double Blinded, Randomized Clinical Study

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.004
Synopsis: 
Rocuronium induces severe and noxious pain when administered intravenously during anaesthesia induction. We suggested that remifentanyl can be used as intravenous bolus to prevent rocuronium induced pain as effective as remifentanyl and lidocaine administration with venous occlusion.

ABSTRACT

Background: Some agents such as rocuronium and propofol induce severe and noxious pain when administered intravenously during anesthesia induction. This causes to additional stress for the patient who is already stressful due to operation. The purpose of our study was to compare the effects of remifentanyl with two different administration methods and lidocaine on rocuronium injection pain.
