Endothelial cell activity varies in patients at risk for the adult respiratory distress syndrome

Critical Care Medicine
M MossPolly E Parsons


The endothelial cell produces many bioactive compounds that are presumed to play important roles in the pathogenesis of the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We postulated that individuals with sepsis and trauma-two at-risk diagnoses for the development of ARDS--might demonstrate differences in the degree of endothelial cell activity. Prospective cohort study. Intensive care unit patients in a tertiary, university-affiliated, city hospital. Fifty-five intensive care unit patients (19 with sepsis and 36 trauma patients). Plasma measurements of three endothelial cell products--von Willebrand factor antigen, soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), and soluble E-selectin-were performed within 8 hrs of patients meeting our inclusion criteria, and at the clinical onset of ARDS. Twenty-six percent of the septic patients and 25% of the trauma patients developed ARDS. The median (and 25% to 75% quartiles) concentrations of all three mediators measured in the sepsis patients (von Willebrand factor antigen 399% [375% to 452%], ICAM-1 573 ng/mL [470 to 980], and soluble E-selectin 180 ng/mL [81 to 340]) were significantly higher (p < .001 for each individual analysis) than in the trauma patients (von Willebrand factor...Continue Reading

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
