Severe sepsis and septic shock are diseases of infectious origin with a high risk of death. Antibiotic therapy is mandatory but it is unknown whether one antibiotic alone is sufficient for initial therapy. The purpose of this study is to compare a therapy with meropenem alone or the combination of meropenem plus moxifloxacin in the treatment of severe sepsis/ septic shock. Patients randomly receive one of the two treatments for at least 7 days but not longer ... Read More

This study will evaluate the ease of use of the new calorimeter (Quark RMR 2.0 (COSMED, Italy)) in intensive care unit (ICU) patients compared to currently used calorimeters (i.e. Quark RMR 1.0(COSMED, Italy) or Deltatrac Metabolic Monitor (Datex, Finland)), as well as the stability and the feasibility of the measurements in various clinically relevant situations. Time needed to prepare and start indirect calorimetry (IC) measurement will be compared as ... Read More

A goal directed , demand-driven administration of sedative drugs is an integral part of every intensive care treatment. During long-term application of sedatives, Midazolam is the most commonly used sedative in Europe. One major objective is the problem of oversedation and agitation during an intensive care treatment due to the lack of controllability of available substances. The Love-Mi RCT investigates the clinical controllability of Midazolam versus the ... Read More

In this prospective, multicenter observational study the investigators capture the perioperative course of peripheral cholinesterase activity. The focus is the perioperative inflammation causing postoperative delirium. Therefore we measure the activity of Acetylcholine-Esterase and Butyrylcholine-Esterase in whole blood of adults in the perioperative context. Early postoperative delirium will be detected by Nu-DESC in the Recovery Room or the ... Read More

In Intensive Care Medicine, critical incidents are not rare and may result in fatal outcome. High fidelity patient simulators are commonly used in training curricula for healthcare professionals especially in anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and intensive care medicine. Several different course concepts have previously been published. As we know from recently published data, up to 80% of all critical incidents in the field of medicine are caused by human ...

In a previous study, the investigators showed that tight blood glucose control with insulin during intensive care reduced morbidity and mortality in adult intensive care patients. Whether this intervention also improves prognosis of pediatric intensive care patients remains unknown. The current prospective, randomized, controlled study will asses the impact of intensive insulin therapy on outcome of patients in a pediatric intensive care unit. On admission ... Read More
