ALBIOS: Albumin Replacement in Patients with Severe Sepsis or Septic Shock Randomised, controlled clinical trial; Stratified according to. In this icTV interview video, Luciano Gattinoni discusses his recent trial: Albumin for Volume Replacement in Severe Sepsis (ALBIOS). BACKGROUND: A reanalysis of the ALBIOS trial suggested that patients with septic shock – defined by vasopressor-dependent hypotension in.

However, this finding should be used for hypothesis-building purposes given its post-hoc nature. Papers of the Month. Jones- Is Lactate a Useful Indicator?
The authors explain that the coagulation and liver dysfunction was due to “a higher serum bilirubin and a lower platelet count” rather than being a reflection of clinically-significant physiologic parameters.
Meets criteria for SIRS.

Registered on 30 June Introduction to Statistics for Nurses. Views Read View source View history. Another interesting thing would have been to know the infusion time of the albumin, since animal data tells us that algios 3hr infusion decreases extravasation and improves vascular filling vs shorter infusion times.
It would have been nice to see a subgroup analysis where extravascular lung water was looked at especially coming from a Gattinoni crew! Get my feet to the floor…please!

The ALBIOS study a Gattinoni crew So basically showed no difference, so pretty much a solid italian remake of the SAFE study in a sense, confirming that albumin is indeed safe overall, and may be better in those with shock.
Ok, so it was pretty cool to see an NEJM issue basically dedicated to septic shock management, I must admit. In my mind the benefit of albumin would a,bios greatest in those with significant capillary leak, particularly those with intra-abdominal and pulmonary albjos.
The New England Journal of Medicine. So, what does this mean. As the authors note, their mortality was low, so again may not have been able to detect a difference. He describes the objectives and reports early results from this sepsis trial and suggests that while they are still awaiting conclusive results, perhaps findings may show that there are specific patient groups in which treatment with Albumin may prove to be beneficial.
They also note the underpowered-ness of their own wlbios, but I think it is still worth looking at their results. Human nature for some I guess. In patients defined by Shock-3 a similar benefit was observed for albumin with a Albumin in Severe Sepsis?
Patients treated in the albumin group had a shorter duration on vasopressors or inotropes and improved cardiovascular parameters early in their ICU course.
Net result is that all are pretty equal, no change in mortality.
So basically a negative study except for two findings, the increased incidence of afib in the ttrial target group and the decreased need for renal replacement therapy among chronic hypertensives albips the high target group.
Strangely, no analysis of the primary outcome for this subgroup was presented by the authors. Choice of Fluid- John Myburgh Summary.
