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.

Septic shock-3 vs 2: an analysis of the ALBIOS study.

The New England Trail of Medicine. Ok, so it was pretty cool to see an NEJM issue basically dedicated to septic shock alnios, I must admit. 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.

The New England Journal of Medicine. The Sepsis-3 definition reduced the size of the population with shock and showed a similar effect size in the benefits of albumin.

They also used a target albumin level, not albumin as a resuscitation fluid purely. We compared group size, physiological variables and day mortality between patients defined by Shock-2 and Shock-3 and between the albumin and crystalloid treatment groups. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Human nature for triall I guess. Wash Your Mouth Out!! Courtesy of Felix Ketamine with raised ICP? As the authors note, mortality was low, organ failure was low, so study power a little low as well.


Multi centre, open label.

So basically a negative study except for two findings, the increased incidence of afib in the high target group and the decreased need for renal replacement therapy among chronic hypertensives in the high target group.

Net result is that all are pretty equal, no change in mortality.

In patients defined by Shock-3 a similar benefit was observed for albumin with a Suspected or proven infection in one site or more. Lactate Clearance…more weight to the argument? Patients treated in the albumin group had a shorter duration on vasopressors or inotropes and improved cardiovascular parameters early in their ICU course. Follow me on Twitter My Tweets.

The Albios Trial- Albumin in Severe Sepsis

It would have been interesting to have echo data on those who developed a fib — were they patients who had normal to hyperdynamic LVs who in truth did not need B agonism at all and would have been fine with phenylephrine?

Originally posted As the authors note, the actual BP averages were higher than planned. A large randomized controlled trial to evaluate for benefit of albumin in patients with severe sepsis or septic shock was lacking.

Albumin decreased mortality in Shock-2 patients compared to crystalloids Retrieved from ” http: Introduction to Statistics for Nurses. We investigated how the populations defined according to Shock-2 and Shock-3 differed and whether the albumin benefit would be confirmed.

Again, studies such as EGDT are pivotal in changing practice and raising awareness, so this is not a knock against a necessary study, just to highlight the point that each study is a step along the way of refining our resuscitation, and the important thing is to move on.

As the authors note, their mortality was low, so again may not have been able to detect a difference.
