Hypothermia is an important clinical clue to bacteremia purchase femara 2.5mg online, particularly in renal insufficiency. In normal hosts with fever, sepsis should not be a diagnostic consideration if temperatures are <1028For>1068F (22–25) (Table 2). As with hemodynamic parameters, laboratory data may mislead the unwary into incorrectly ascribing laboratory abnormalities to an infectious rather than a noninfectious process. An increase in white peripheral blood cell count with a shift to the left is a nonspecific reaction to stress, and is not specific for infection. An increase in white count with a shift to the left is a measure of the intensity of the systemic response to stress of infectious or noninfectious disorders. Laboratory parameters that are more indicative of infection include leukopenia or thrombocytopenia. The only laboratory abnormalities that are specific for sepsis are organisms in the blood, i. Positive buffy coat smears are not present in all patients with bacteremia, and when positive are diagnostic and rapid. The bacteria/fungi present in buffy coat smears are helpful in determining the origin of the septic process by their association with particular organ system involvement, i. The morphology/arrangement of the bacteria in buffy coat smears is also useful in selecting appropriate empiric antibiotic coverage (26–30) (Table 3). Because each organ has its normal resident flora that becomes the pathogenic flora when the organ function is disrupted, empiric coverage is directed against the normal resident flora (Table 4). Factors in antibiotic selection include hepatic/renal insufficiency, allergic status of the patient, tissue penetration of the antibiotic, safety profile of the antibiotic, resistance potential of the antibiotic, and cost. If the spectrum is appropriate for the source of sepsis, no regimen is superior to others in terms of clinical outcome. However, clinicians should utilize the most clinically/cost-effective regimens with a low resistance potential and begin therapy as soon as the diagnosis of sepsis is made. The basis of empiric therapy for sepsis depends on eliminating the source of sepsis and covering the patient with antibiotic therapy appropriate for the septic source (31–42). The use of steroids and anti-cytokine therapies remain controversial and of unproven benefit (43–46). Clinical Approach to Sepsis and Its Mimics in Critical Care 131 Table 3 Sepsis Vs.

The temperature of the patient is of key importance in determining if the patient has sepsis or a noninfectious mimic. Antibiotic therapy should be instituted as soon as there is a basis for the diagnosis of sepsis, i. Coverage should be based on the usual pathogens associated with the involved organ system.

The diagram shows two possible ways a specific chromosome might segregate in a family in which hearing loss is being transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. In Scenario 2, inheritance of the bold chromosome exactly parallels inheritance of hearing loss. If this happens sufficiently often, it would suggest that the hearing-loss gene is carried on that chromosome. However, in real life, pairs of chromosomes swap segments during each meiosis, so what we have to follow through the pedigree is a chromosomal segment rather than a whole chromosome. Understanding the genotype: basic concepts 13 Inevitably, it can go wrong in many different ways.
