Learning outcomes cont

Learning Outcomes Cont.:

  • Describe how to assess the patient systematically.

  • Explain the priorities and principles of management for these patients.


Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome1

Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome

Definition

  • Is a consequence of the inability to maintain end- organ perfusion and oxygenation, resulting in injury and organ failure.

  • E.g. The inability of the pulmonary system to oxygenate the blood adequately through ventilation and gas exchange is considered pulmonary failure.


Cns dysfunction associated with mods

CNS dysfunction associated with MODS

1. Septic encephalopathy

  • Neurological alteration ranging from altered concentration and intermittent confusion to seizures and coma.

    2. Critical illness polyneuropathy

  • It presents clinically as limb and chest wall weakness, although sensory deficits can occur alone or in combination.


Cns dysfunction associated with mods1

CNS dysfunction associated with MODS

1Neuroendocrine exhaustion

  • Altered release of hypothalamic products

    (e.g. growth hormone- releasing hormone).

  • Glucose intolerance.

  • Failure to mount a febrile response.

  • Neurological pulmonary oedema.


Cns dysfunction associated with mods2

CNS dysfunction associated with MODS

Patient assessment

  • Conscious level ( Glasgow coma scores)

  • Mental agitation and confusion.

  • Profound weakness and muscle wasting.

  • EEGs may exhibit evidence of changes consistent with metabolic or anoxic encephalopathy.


Respiratory system involvement in mods

Respiratory system involvement in MODS

  • It occupies range of dysfunction from acute lung injury to acute respiratory distress syndrome.

    Patient assessment

  • General appearance.

  • Lung fields ...... Wheeze.

  • Pulse oximetry .......Sa O2< 90%.

  • Pulmonary secretions ....Early loose

    white ... Later thicker & more profuse.


Respiratory system involvement in mods1

Respiratory system involvement in MODS

Patient assessment

  • ABGs.....Early PaO2 low & PaCO2 low.... Alkalosis Later.... PaO2 rise with in PH....acidosis.

  • Heart rate...... Tachycardia, low blood pressure.

    Cardiovascular involvement in MODS

  • Loss of peripheral autoregulation leads to: Inappropriate vasodilatation .

  • Maldistribution of flow.

  • Decreased oxygen extraction.


Cardiovascular involvement in mods

    >0.5 ml/ kg/hour.


Cardiovascular involvement in mods1

Cardiovascular involvement in MODS

Patient assessment Cont.

  • Arterial base deficit...... Blood gas analysis is

    highly suggestive of tissue ischemia or

    infarction.

  • Lactate ..... Blood lactate levels may be good indication of global ischemia

    ( levels > 2 mmoI/I reflect tissue hypoxia) .

  • Temperature ...... May increased or decreased.


Gastrointestinal involvement in mods

Gastrointestinal involvement in MODS

  • Stomach : ulceration, stress ulcer bleeding,

    decreased gastric motility.

    ( inflammation unrelated to gallstone).

  • Colon : Colitis.

  • Faces ..... Presence of diarrhea, color, consistency, frequency, and presence of blood.

  • Gastric intolerance...... Nausea, vomiting, large aspirates > (200 ml) from the NGT.

  • Ultrasound ....... Acalculous cholecystitis, fluid collection within the abdomen.


Liver involvement in mods

Liver involvement in MODS

  • The serum bilirubin exceeds 20 – 30 umI/I

    ( jaundice).

  • Elevation in liver function enzymes to more than twice normal levels.

  • Abnormal prothrombin time.

  • Hepatic encephalopathy.


Liver involvement in mods1

Liver involvement in MODS

Patient assessment

  • Conscious level and neurological status.

  • Skin, mucous membranes, and invasive line sites.

  • Inspected daily for evidence of coagulation abnormalities .............. Bleeding from gums, purpura, bleeding from line sites.


Liver involvement in mods2

Liver involvement in MODS

Patient assessment Cont.

  • Conjunctiva and skin color ...... Jaundice.

  • Urine analysis ....... Bilirubin level.

  • Liver function tests ...... Carried out at least every 2 – 3 days in the acute phase.

  • Clotting test ........ On daily basis


Renal involvement in mods

Renal involvement in MODS

  • Renal dysfunction which has four stages:

  • Onset It may correspond with pre- renal failure. It may last hours to days depending on the cause.

  • Oliuric – anuric phase.

    Lasts 1 – 6 weeks. The GF reduced & body fluid overload, blood urea & creatinine,

    uraemia.


Renal involvement in mods1

Renal involvement in MODS

  • Diuretic phase ........ Increase urine output &

    in renal function.

  • Recovery phase ........ GF returns to at least

    70 – 80 of normal within 1 – 2 years.


Renal involvement in mods2

Renal involvement in MODS

Patient assessment

  • Oedema ......... (Peripheral and pulmonary)

    nausea, vomiting, pruritis.

  • Urine output ..... ( the aim is > ml/kg/hour).

  • Urine ........ Specific gravity, glucose, protein.

Priorities and principles of management

Priorities and principles of management

Initial resuscitation includes:

  • Airway

  • A patent airway.

  • Intubation should be considered.

  • Breathing

  • Oxygen therapy or ventilatory support to maintain O2 saturation of 90 – 95 %.


Priorities and principles of management1

Priorities and principles of management

Initial resuscitation includes:

  • Circulation

  • The aim is the rapid restoration of organ perfusion and perfusion pressure .

  • Administration of colloid challenges

    ( aliquots of 200 ml)

  • Measure CVP.

  • If unsuccessful ....... Vasoactive drugs are required


Priorities and principles of management2

Priorities and principles of management

Early Interventions

  • Once the patient stabilize, any injuries should be treated (removal of necrotic tissue, deriding burn, stabilize fracture.

  • Drainage of any collection or abscesses.

  • Blood, urine, and other cultures, should done to identify source of sepsis.

  • Appropriate antibiotics should be prescribed.


Priorities and principles of management3

Priorities and principles of management

Further Interventions

Metabolic

  • Body temperature should be maintained within the normothermic range 36.0 37.5 C.

  • Strict control of blood glucose.

    Infection

  • Abscesses should be located and drained.

  • Prevention of secondary infection.

  • Care of IV cannula.


Priorities and principles of management4

Priorities and principles of management

Further Interventions Cont.

Renal

  • Furosemide or dopamine have no effect on improving renal function but they convert oliguria to more normal urine output.

  • Haemofiltration can be used.

  • Nephrotoxic and hepatotoxic drugs should be avoided.


Priorities and principles of management5

Priorities and principles of management

Further Interventions Cont.

Gastrointestinal tract

  • Prophylaxis against GI bleeding.

  • Provision of appropriate nutrition .

  • Monitoring and maintenance of electrolyte.

    Haematological.

  • Haemoglobin levels of 7 – 9 g/dl should be.

  • Blood transfusion if Hg less than 7g/dl.

  • Any clotting abnormalities should be corrected.


Priorities and principles of management6

Priorities and principles of management

Further Interventions Cont.

Musculoskeletal

  • Pressure area should be protected from damage.

  • Early passive movement and mobilization.

  • Frequent change position.

  • Circulation


Priorities and principles of management7

Priorities and principles of management

Further Interventions Cont.

Supporting the circulation

  • Fluids administration.

    If fluids does not improve stroke volume further but the main arterial pressure (MAP)

  • Vasopressors ( e.g. Norepinephrine are used

    in high – output).

  • Inotropes ( e.g. Dobutamine in low-output)

  • Epinephrine can be used for either effect.


Priorities and principles of management8

Priorities and principles of management

Further Interventions Cont.

Supporting the respiration

The aim is to:

  • Maintain saturations ( usually) > 90%.

    These through:

  • Use of lower tidal volumes ( 6-8 ml/kg)

  • Higher levels of PEEP ( up to 20 cmH2O)

  • Prone positioning.

  • Inhaled nitric oxide or prostacyclin.
