Impact of fat and glucose administration on metabolic and respiratory interactions in sepsis

Metabolic and respiratory interactions were analyzed in a large group of septic patients (S) and in a reference group of nonseptics (NS) during the iv administration of glucose and fat. In spite of a moderate increase in CO2 production (VCO2) observed during the administration of fat in S, a VCO2-sparing effect of fat, with respect to equicaloric amounts of glucose, was reconfirmed. The relevance of the therapeutic modulation of CO2 production during parenteral nutrition, and the relative impact on the abnormal septic respiratory patterns, were emphasized by analyzing the physiological relationships and mechanisms responsible for the increase in respiratory work in sepsis.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia

Pontocerebellar hypoplasias are a group of neurodegenerative autosomal recessive disorders with prenatal onset, atrophy or hypoplasia of the cerebellum, hypoplasia of the ventral pons, microcephaly, variable neocortical atrophy and severe mental and motor impairments. Here is the latest research on pontocerebellar hypoplasia.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain.
