Description

Present dissertation is focused on evaluation of gastrointestinal function in intensive care patients. The definitions, incidence and impact of gastrointestinal failure are addressed. Development of GI symptoms is associated with increased mortality and prolonged ICU stay. The most remarkable raise in risk of death may be observed in elective cardiosurgical patients. Similar to clinical symptoms, the incidence of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is high in mixed ICU population. Monitoring the only the presumable risk population may result in missing part of the actual IAH patients. The patients with IAH have higher ICU- and 90-day mortality. Secondary IAH has worse outcome than primary IAH. The scoring system for GIF based on combined evaluation of successfulness of enteral feeding and presence of intra-abdominal hypertension is developed. Proposed GIF score has high prognostic value in prediction of ICU mortality in single centre prospective study. Gastrointestinal failure assessed with GIF score is highly important among other organ failures in ICU.
