Decreased mortality rate and length of hospital stay in surgical intensive care unit patients with successful selective decontamination of the gut.
Current studies concerning selective deconcentration of the digestive tract have failed to demonstrate a decrease in the length of hospital stay and mortality rate, despite the finding of a signicantly lower number of infections.
To evaluate this issue in more detail, the relationship between the mortality rate and length of stay with respect to colonization and infections was studied within a group of patients receiving selective decontamination.
Special attention was given to the efficacy of decontamination within each patient.
The main question addressed was whether an effect on mortality rate was present, and if so, why this effect was not apparent until now.
Prospective observational cohort study.
