Effectiveness of polymyxin B-immobilized fiber column in sepsis: a systematic review

The authors described the effect of direct haemoperfusion with polymixin B-immobilized fiber column (PMX-F) on clinical outcomes in patients with sepsis. The authors concluded that treatment appeared to have beneficial effects on blood pressure, use of vasoactive drugs, oxygenation and mortality. Limitations of the included studies and the review methodology mean that the results may not be reliable.

Blood purification and mortality in sepsis: a meta-analysis of randomized trials

OBJECTIVES: Although blood purification improves outcomes in animal studies of sepsis, results of clinical trials have been mixed. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials to determine the association between various blood purification techniques and all-cause mortality in humans with sepsis.

Treatment of acute otitis externa with ciprofloxacin otic 0.2% antibiotic ear solution

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: An inflammation of the cutis and subcutis of the external auditory canal is a primary symptom in cases of acute otitis externa. It is usually treated locally, since this type of therapy ensures a high concentration of the drug and interacts at the site of inflammation with no systemic effects. This systematic review compares the efficacy of treatment using a ciprofloxacin 0.2% solution with other therapeutic options.

Surgical Site Infection: Prevention and Treatment of Surgical Site Infection

Infections that occur in the wound created by an invasive surgical procedure are generally referred to as surgical site infections (SSIs). SSIs are one of the most important causes of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs). A prevalence survey undertaken in 2006 suggested that approximately 8% of patients in hospital in the UK have an HCAI. SSIs accounted for 14% of these infections and nearly 5% of patients who had undergone a surgical procedure were found to have developed an SSI. However, prevalence studies tend to underestimate SSI because many of these infections occur after the patient has been discharged from hospital.
