This randomized clinical trial compares the effects of physical rehabilitation vs usual care on length of stay of ICU patients with acute respiratory failure.
This randomized clinical trial compares the effects of high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy vs conventional oxygen therapy on risk of reintubation among mechanically ventilated patients at low risk for reintubation.
This randomized clinical trial compares the effect of vasopressin vs norepinephrine on kidney failure in patients with septic shock.
This commentary describes the difficulties in studying concussion injury with regards to a study published in JAMA Pediatrics involving data for football players at the youth league, high school, and collegiate levels.
This randomized trial evaluates whether noninvasive ventilation improves 7-day tracheal reintubation and other outcomes compared with standard oxygen therapy among patients with hypoxemic acute respiratory failure after abdominal surgery.
This randomized trial reports that the addition of metformin to insulin does not improve glycemic control in overweight adolescents with type 1 diabetes and increases incidence of gastrointestinal adverse events.
This commentary discusses patient-physician interactions and care quality measures in relation to a study recently published in JAMA Oncology of patients’ perception of physician compassion.
This randomized clinical trial explores the use of aspirin vs placebo as an early intervention for preventing acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in at-risk patients presenting to the emergency department.
This randomized clinical trial compares the effects of high-flow conditioned oxygen therapy vs noninvasive ventilation (NIV) on postextubation respiratory failure and reintubation among critically ill adult patients.
To determine whether antibiotic treatment before and after cholecystectomy, the FRENCH Study group randomized 414 patients between May 2010 and August 2013 with acute calculous cholecystitis to receive either no antibiotic treatment after surgery or amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid for 5 days after surgery. They found that number of infections did not differ between groups.
This randomized trial compares the effects of noninvasive ventilation vs oxygen alone on 28-day mortality among immunocompromised patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure.
