Society affiliationsJournal of Intensive Care is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Intensive Care Medicine.
This study provided interesting evidence regarding the impact that both an elevated body temperature and hypothermia have on mortality in those patients with severe sepsis
We can learn new techniques to achieve active intravascular rewarming by using a Cool Line catheter for patients demonstrating near-severe hypothermia with traumatic injury through this unique case report
End-of-life care in Japan has made great strides from fear for legal prosecution to recognition of the importance of the decision-making process, guideline-based management, and education of both physicians and the public
This is a concise review worth reading for the young trainees working in intensive care unit. Dr Koh, the top expertise in this area, covered all related topics found recently. Readers can undoubtedly obtain update notion of ARDS.
Neutrophil cell disintegration, and DAMPs and tissue factor released from the dead-cells, all play roles in the inflammatory and coagulatory responses therefore host immune competence during sepsis.
It is still difficult to assess fluid responsiveness properly in severe sepsis. The authors showed that global end-diastolic volume index, one of the static volumetric parameters is not suitable for this end.
Compared with the current standard, i.e., quantitative culture, a much less burdensome and inexpensive approach for semi-quantitative staining and/or culture would be a valuable alternative for diagnosing VAP.
The Japanese Society of Intensive Care Medicine (JSICM) was founded in 1974 and aims to support and advance intensive care medicine, which is the last resort for life preservation and treatment of critically ill patients.
Intensive care medicine involves various medical professionals such as physicians, nurses, and clinical engineers working individually and cooperatively in order to maximize their abilities for the treatment of critical illnesses. As of April 2012, the JSICM has 9095 members, including over 6400 physicians, 2300 nurses and 300 clinical engineers. The physicians joining the JSICM are physicians who have specialized in intensive care, with past experiences as anesthesiologists, emergency physicians, cardiologists, pediatricians, and many others.
JSICM first published its semi-official journal in 1976. The official Japanese language journal debuted in 1994, and is publishing over 100 scientific articles annually about educational, research, and clinical aspects of intensive care.
Aims & scope
Journal of Intensive Care is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that encompasses all aspects of intensive care medicine. The Journal aims to publish articles contributing to the development of intensive care medical science, and to promote the exchange of ideas internationally in this and related fields. In addition, the Journal encourages submissions considering the different cultural aspects of intensive care practice.
