Description: Critical illness due to severe infection or traumatic injury is often complicated by organ failure syndromes that cause substantial morbidity and death. Evidence continues to accumulate that host inflammatory responses play a central role in the development of these syndromic conditions which include septic shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome, acute renal and hepatic failure, myocardial dysfunction, coagulopathic states and encephalopathy. Alone and cumulatively, each organ failure syndrome increases the risk of death even after successful treatment of the underlying infection or injury. Despite substantial effort, treatment approaches directed at a single mediator or inflammatory pathway has met with little success in altering outcomes of critically ill patients.
