Justification of the chosen approach to the development of functional computer monitoring

Proposed by JHSiegel et al. | 33. 35], the system of functional computer monitoring is based on the assumption that the application of the mathematical methodology of cluster analysis allows us to distinguish typical clinical images (as the author himself calls them, patterns [31. 32 |). The pathogenetic basis for determining such clinical images in some critical conditions (trauma, sepsis) was the criteria characterizing the peculiarities of the balance between aerobic and anaerobic metabolic pathways for the synthesis of energy substrates.

The theoretical basis for highlighting this feature of shock pathogenesis was the numerous reports of pathophysiologists and clinicians about the inconsistency between the relatively high oxygen delivery to tissues and its low consumption, typical for critical conditions, including septic shock. on the one hand, and between an increase in the products of anaerobic metabolism (lactate and pyruvate) and a decrease in carbon dioxide production, on the other. In this regard, some violations of the main types of metabolism during the pathogenesis of sepsis are presented as follows.

Exposure to an infectious agent leads to significant metabolic disorders in the body of the victim. First of all, this is characterized by a sharp increase in lipolysis, as the main source of energy resources, which is accompanied by an increase in the level of free fatty acids. The absence (or lack) of the supply of exogenous proteins leads to a pronounced catabolism of muscle tissue proteins.

The pool of amino acids formed as a result of myolysis, moreover, against the background of increased consumption of some of them, differs significantly in its qualitative structure from that in a healthy person. According to some reports, this is one of the factors predisposing to the synthesis of “fake neurotransmitters” [29, 39]. At the same time, there are both experimental and clinical data [19, 27], indicating a direct damaging effect of endotoxin on the oxygen-transporting mechanisms of the cell membrane. Consequently, developing metabolic disorders lead, on the one hand, to a direct blockade of oxygen-dependent metabolic mechanisms in the cell, and on the other hand, to the incomplete oxidation of aromatic amino acids and the synthesis of “fake neurotransmitters”. This serves as the basis for another pathophysiological phenomenon observed in sepsis - the mismatch between the significantly increased cardiac output and vascular bed capacity.

After more than twenty years after the publication of JHSiegel et al. of the first works [31, 32], it can be noted that we have a deeper understanding of the nature of developing metabolic disorders, in particular, the role of the small intestine ecosystem and enteric insufficiency syndrome in the pathogenesis of sepsis. However, the main relationships between metabolic disorders and their pathophysiological reflection in the generalized inflammatory processes on which the development of a monitoring system was based remained the same.

The use of such a pathophysiological base, along with the mathematical apparatus developed by the IBM Research Center, already in 1971 allowed us to distinguish three typical pathological clinical images that embody the clinical-pathophysiological characteristic of the general response to a critical situation in a particular patient at a particular point in time in integral expression. They are called “Pattern A”, “Pattern B” and “Pattern C”.
Eight variables were selected for the study - mean arterial pressure, central venous pressure, cardiac index, arteriovenous oxygen gradient, venous partial pressure of carbon dioxide and oxygen, venous blood acidity in pH units, ejection time (physiological indicator characterizing myocardial contractility) .

These studies were performed in 92 patients with various forms of septic and hypovolemic shock. Each patient had from 50 to 200 data correlated to one time indicator. A total of 2 to 10 studies were performed on the patient.

Describing the mathematical method of isolating the corresponding sample of patients, the authors emphasize [16, 35] that after conducting a cluster analysis and determining these pathological groups, the homogeneity of the groups of the studied patients was determined. As a result, the homogeneity of such groups of patients was achieved by the initial clinical selection — only patients with signs of infection and signs of shock were left, and patients with chronic diseases — cirrhosis of the liver, heart and pulmonary insufficiency — were to be removed. After completing this step, uniformity was confirmed by statistical methods.

The inclusion of patients with primary heart failure who were selected for coronary artery bypass grafting operations necessitated a review of the three profiles obtained and the selection of the fourth in 1972 [32]. As a result, the obtained profiles were correlated with clinical characteristics and were defined as:

- profile of hyperdynamic stress response;

- metabolic disorder profile;

- profile of pulmonary failure;

- profile of heart failure.

Given the need for a more detailed description of the pumping function of the heart, two more were added to the analyzed features. Their use as determinants in cluster analysis has led to the identification of a special profile of primary heart failure. Thus, an array was formed and four typical pathophysiological profiles were identified.

Given the extremely difficult presentation in the eleven-dimensional space, a mathematical apparatus was developed to determine the distance to each of the typical profiles from a particular patient profile at a given time, which allowed us to switch from the eleven-dimensional space to four-dimensional. Taking into account the primacy of metabolic disturbances, it was proposed to study the trajectory of the clinical course in the patient in two-dimensional space, where the ratio of the distance to the profile of “pulmonary insufficiency” to the distance to the profile of metabolic imbalance (a ratio that allows us to assess the severity of the anaerobic component in the metabolism was plotted on the abscissa) energy substrates), and along the ordinate axis, the ratio of the distance to the profile of “cardiac abnormalities” to the distance to the profile of “hyperdynamic stress osovoy response ”, which allows to assess the severity of violations of the primary cardiac function or peripheral vascular network [31].

Between 1979 and 1983, a large number of materials were published that were obtained using this system in clinical practice [10, 34, 36–40]. Unfortunately, the existing shortcomings in the structure of the system, as already indicated above, led to the cessation of its functioning.

Justification of the chosen approach to the development of functional computer monitoring

  1. Methodology for the development of a functional computer monitoring system
    In the period from 1988 to 1992, 207 patients with severe mechanical trauma who were admitted to the clinic by ambulance were examined at the clinic of military field surgery. As a result of a thorough verification of the data, the observations with obvious technical errors were deleted, as well as the data of three victims who died shortly after the injury (during the first day). Reason
  2. Functional computer monitoring system in the diagnosis of sepsis
    An analysis of the dynamics of the criteria of a functional computer monitoring system for the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and sepsis, performed by us. showed that for sepsis, as one form of SSVR. all the characteristic features of this syndrome are inherent. First of all, this is a significant increase in the C / B ratio, corresponding to an increased role of anaerobic metabolic mechanisms against the background, as a rule,

  7. Functional computer monitoring system in the diagnosis of conditions that "threaten" the development of a systemic inflammatory response syndrome
    Successful treatment of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and sepsis as one of its forms should be based, first of all, on early diagnosis. As a rule, the treatment of advanced conditions that manifested themselves in the full clinical picture, unfortunately, is ineffective and leads mainly to adverse results. This position has long been well known to practitioners, but early
  8. The rationale for the development of new technology
    The feasibility of developing an improved device is determined by its role and importance for medical institutions. It is important that this device is cost-effective and of high quality. Quality depends on the functional and technical characteristics, and its change is evaluated by the index of the technical level of the developed device. To determine the technical level index

    (Kuchma V.R., Skoblina N.A.) An analysis of the informativeness of methods for assessing indicators of the physical development of children and adolescents at the population and individual levels allows us to give preference to methods that use regional regression scales. Estimation by regional modified scales of regression of body weight by body length and a comprehensive scheme have much in common: - indicators of physical
    Registration of blood pressure. The most common way to control hemodynamics is the Riva-Rocci auscultation method using Korotkov sounds, however, it requires a number of conditions to be fulfilled to eliminate errors. So, to measure blood pressure in pregnant women should be in the position on the left side with the location of the cuff on the left hand. In addition, the cuff size matters: if the cuff
  13. Dynamic monitoring of the functional state of the central nervous system, respiratory system, hemodynamics, homeostasis (2nd principle)
    ICP monitoring is leading in patients with severe OCD and swelling symptoms. Most often, invasive monitoring of intracranial pressure is used for severe traumatic brain injury, after operations to remove intracerebral hemorrhages, brain tumors. However, with ischemic strokes, hypoxic and ischemic injuries of the central nervous system, an invasive ICP measurement is practically not used. therefore
    During pregnancy and childbirth, significant physiological changes occur in the mother's body, aimed at ensuring increased metabolic processes, taking into account the needs of the mother-placenta-fetus system, to prepare a woman for the stress load during childbirth and for the subsequent closure of placental circulation. The main manifestations of adaptive mechanisms are changes in
