Lung Recruitment in ARDS - To be or not to be by Dr Swapnil Pawar
 
International outcomes of centres performing ECLS (extracorporeal life support) are highly variable due to differences in patient selection, cannulation technique, practitioner experience and hospital volume. We describe the experience of one of the first regional intensive care units in Australia to provide both VV (veno-venous) and rescue VA ...…
 
Since the H1N1 influenza pandemic of 2009 there has been a dramatic increase in the number of patients receiving ECMO and in the number of hospitals that provide it. Data from the Extracorporeal Life Support Organisation (ELSO) suggests that over the last decade the number of adult patients receiving ECMO for respiratory support has increased a ...…
 
Optimising support by Dr Susanna Price
 
I will consider this question in two parts; Should ECMO be considered for all patients? Should ECMO services be provided in all ICUs? From a patient perspective, ECMO is a highly invasive intervention and like every other intervention that we consider, the benefits it provides must outweigh its risks for it to be worthwhile. Clearly, veno-venou ...…
 
Use of Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD) and heart transplantation (HT) for end stage cardiac failure have increased significantly in recent decades. These support strategies hold inherently different risks in the face on non-cardiac critical illness, and require multidisciplinary team management. According to INTERMACS, more than 2500 VADs/year ...…

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) is an effective therapy to improve outcomes for children who experience cardiopulmonary arrest. Survival after ECLS varies between 60% and 75%. For ECPR survival is lower, with 40% to 50% of children surviving ECPR. After ECPR good neurological outcomes are seen i ...…
 
Patients admitted to the ICU after cardiac arrest have, by definition, achieved ROSC. In such patients the major issues remain those of ongoing support hemodynamic and cardiorespiratory support, cerebral protection, aetiological diagnosis, and rapid intervention to deal with the underlying trigger (coronary angiography and stenting of coronary ...…
 
The good news in resuscitation is that there have not been any new advances that mandate a change in practice since the 2016 ANZCOR Guidelines. The bad news is that despite our best intent, the ever-increasing research appears unable to demonstrate improved outcomes with any particular approach. Two of the most exciting areas (eCPR and post-res ...…

The understanding around the metabolic response to the stress of critical illness has evolved rapidly over the past decade. This involves a neuroendocrine and an inflammatory component, which results in perturbations within the sympathetic nervous system, the hypothalamo-pituitary axis and the immune system. The clinical consequences are widesp ...…

Tips and tricks for getting through the first part: Examiner’s perspective
 
10% of patients admitted to ICU die and, in some societies over 80% of people die during a hospitalization that included an ICU stay. Most deaths in ICU are predictable and the overwhelming majority of patients are comatose for the last few days of their life. Most communication by intensivists is directed at families rather than patients. This ...…
 
According to the World Health Organization Training Package for the Health Sector (2008), ‘Children are not little adults’ and specialised care must be targeted to pediatric patients in order to optimize outcomes. In a review of Australia and New Zealand Paediatric Intensive Care (ANZPIC) Registry data from 2006 to 2016, approximately 1600 children…

The goal of hemodynamic monitoring is to assess the cardiovascular state of the patient, define their reserve and monitor response to treatments and time. Resuscitation efforts are essentially aimed at restoring and sustaining tissue wellness through maintaining an adequate amount of oxygenated blood flow to the metabolically active tissues. We ...…
 
Many tools are nowadays available to monitor patients’ hemodynamics in the intensive care unit (ICU) and in the operating room (OR) settings. Some monitoring tools are invasive such as the pulmonary artery catheter (PAC), some others are less invasive such as transpulmonary thermodilution (TPD) systems, some others are called minimally invasive ...…
