Research of resuscitation effects to organ functions in brain - Dead potential donors

Luckraz and Reyes did not see any difference for recipients with

PaO2/FiO2< 300 compared to PaO2/FiO2> 300. The PaO2/FiO2 ratio

of our study decreased gradually in the later stages, especially 36

hours (T3) with a statistically significant reduction (still satisfactory ≥

300) (table 3.18). In addition, the ELWI <10 played an important role

in determining the lung quality assessment, in the changes of ELWI,

from T0 to T2 and Tm, the ELWI is relatively stable <10, but from T3

on wards ELWI increased > 10 and was significant at 36 hours (T3)

(Table 3.22).

Mascia (2010) and Neto (2012) found that low Vt would increase

the number of transplanted eligible lung organs from brain-dead

potential donors. Our patients were resuscitated according to the "lung

protection strategy", quite stable resuscitation stages for blood pH,

PaCO2, PO2, which were not significantly different between periods,

except after 24 hours. PO2 reduced significantly but average is still

228.09 ± 65.89 (table 3.17)

CHAPTER4 - DISCUSSION 4.1. General characteristics of patients. 4.1.1. Characteristics of age, gender, weight. The average age was 32.91 ± 12.08 years old, lower than Weiss’s 17 study (54 ± 19.7). The rate of male is higher than of female (chart 3.1) and the majority of 40/47 (85.1%), female is 7/40 (14.9%). The average weight is 55.57 ± 6.30 kg and BMI is 18.62 ± 5.13 (Table 3.2) is suitable for the average size of Vietnam. 4.1.2. Causes and traits of brain death patients in the study. 100% of severe head trauma in which 83% of severe cranial injury, 17% suffered from multiple injuries (severe cranial injury mainly of brain hematoma, cerebral hemorrhage and haemorrhagic hemorrhage (up to 76.6%) (table 3.3). 4.2. Clinical and laboratory subclinical characteristics in brain dead potential donors. 4.2.1. Diabetes insipidus, electrolyte disturbances and body temperature. The rate of diabetes insipidus is 70.2%, urineoutput is 0.55 ml/kg/hour, and natriemia increase 152 mmol/l (Table 3.5). This rate in the study of Nguyen Quoc Kinh is 62.5%; Wood is 65%; Salim (2001) is 84%. The average temperature of diabetes insipidus group 36.10 ± 1.58 are different not significant for the group without diabetes insipidus, 36.41 ± 1.31 (p = 0.6) (Table 3.5). Hypernatremia > 155 are 42.6% in the study (Table 3.5). Cywinski has 20.4% hypernatremia > 155 mmol/l. 4.2.2. Hemodynamic and endocrine disorders. According to Salim, demands for cathecolamine is 97.1%, thrombocytopenia 53.6%, coagulopathy 55.1%, diabetes insipidus 46.4%, lactic acidosis 24.6%, renal failure 20.3%, and ARDS 13%. The results of our study have the rate of cathecolamine using (especially noradrenalin) is 95.7% (table 3.4), thrombocytopenia <150 G/L is 50.1% (table 3.7), coagulopathy (rate of prothombine time <60%) is 36.2% (Table 3.7), diabetes insipidus is 70.2% (Table 3.5), kidney failure is 17.1% (Table 3.7), respiratory dysfunction (PaO2/FiO2 < 300) is 33% (table 3.6). The period before brain-dead resuscitation, 91.5% (43/47) of our patients treated noradrenaline right from the beginning, higher than the results of the above authors, adrenaline was 12.8% (6/47), dobutamine is 10.6% (5/47) and dopamine is 10.6% (5/47) (table 3.12). Hoege (2007) and Schnuelle (2004) suggest that dopamine is the first cathecolamine due to effective vasoconstriction. The results of thyroid hormones in our study before treatment of 18 (nasal gastricsond) belthyrox corresponding to decreased T3, T4 by 43/47 (91.5%), 35/47 (74.5%); and normal/ increase TSH is 25/3 (total 59.6%) (table 3.10). But after treating belthyrox, decreased T3, T4 respectively to 21/47 (44.7%), 19/47 (40.4%); and the normal/ increase TSH level reached 37/47 (78.7%) (charts 3.3, 3.4, 3.5). In the study, normal and high cortisol before treatment was 42.6% and 29.8% (table 3.10). Kainz (2010), Barkin (2009) mentioned system inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) in brain-dead. 4.2.3. Disorders of respiratory and acidosis We have 10/47 (21.3%) with a slight decrease of PaO2/FiO2 ratio in the range of 301-400, 4/47 patients (8.5%) had mild lung les ions PaO2/FiO2 (201-300) and 2/47 patients (4.3%) had severe lung lesions PaO2/FiO2 (<200) (ARDS) (table 3.11). Clinical acute pulmonary oedema (APO) with neurological cause was 8.5% (4/47) (table 3.6), compared with Smith (2004) and Salim (2006) ranging from 13-18%, also mainly neurological pulmonary edema. There were 21.3% of patients with extralung water index (ELWI> 10) (Table 3.6), which showed that the massively infusion liquids after brain-death due to prevent hypotension. About acidosis disorders, pH> 7.45 is quite high at 66% due to the high-volume ventilations of the before entering ICU (Table 3.6). 4.2.4. Disorder of blood glucose We had 27.7% (13/47) patients with hyperglycemia> 10 mmol / l (Table 3.7). Parekh (2011) studied over 40 recipients of kidney transplants from living kidney donors also found blood glucose> 8.8mmol/l related to impaired renal function after transplantation. 4.2.5. Organ dysfunction according to SOFA score In the pre-resuscitation period, the SOFA score corresponds to ≥ 2 points (SOFA score 2, 3 and 4) for cardiovasculars are 91.5%, respiratory 12.8%, livers 4.3%, kidneys 4.3 % and hematology (thrombocytopenia) 25.6% (table 3.11). The average SOFA score of the period T0 is 8.64 ± 2.27; the following stages corresponds to 9.30 ± 2.48 (T1), 9.51 ± 1.71 (T2), 10.44 ± 1.83 (T3), 11.4 ± 2.07 (T4) respectively, 9.38 ± 1.72 (Tm) and all stages having significantly increased SOFA (p <0.05) in the later stages compared to T0 (chart 3.7), but after 36 hours the average SOFA increased> 10. Nguyen Quoc Kinh (2012, 2013) found that the total SOFA score was statistically significant higher (p <0.05) in patients with cardiac arrest 19 compared to non arrest patients, among non arrest patients, it is better in group of eligible for organ donation compared to groupnon e ligible for organ donation (both are beating heart brain-dead donors). Essien (2017) finds that the current methods of definition organ failure or dysfunction have not yet fully predict the success of transplantations. 4.3. Evaluate the effects of resuscitation measures on the functions of some organ in brain-dead potential donors 4.3.1. The goals of resuscitation as guiding parameters of treatment for brain-dead potential donors. Traditional monitoring parameters and prognosis of tissue hypoxia in brain dead potential donors. The average heart rate of our patients ranged from 105.3 to 108.14 times/min at T1 and T2, but trent to increase by 120.2 times/min at T4 stage but not significant. Average of MAP in groupremained at> 80 mmHg but increased significantly at T1 stage (89.2 ± 15.25) and Tm (101.67 ± 18.89) (p <0.05), CVP was maintained at 6-9 mmHg but statistically high after 24 hours was 8.51 ± 3.81 (p <0.05). The above results are had due to we try to optimize the volume of infusion (table 3.15). The hemodynamic target of the brain-dead potential organ donors We have choosen the law 100* (modified) target (accept the patient's Hb at ≥ 8 g/dl), have 78.7% of our patients were eligible to donate organs after 12 hours and up to 86.5% of patients were eligible for organ donation after 24 hours (table 3.21) and reached 100% of patients when harversted organs. We resuscitated patients with brain death according to PiCCO guidelines and found that only 12.8% of patients met the criteria at the time of diagnosis after 12 hours, and then at 24 hours and 36 hours respectively. 35.1% and 12.5% of patients met the criteria for PiCCO target (Table 3.23). In the period of organ harvesting, there are 56% meeting a ll three PiCCo parameters. The patients who achieved both targets (PiCCo and 100) in our study were quite low at 2.13% after 12 hours, 24.3% after 24 hours and 2.13% after 36 hours; while achieving both goals (PiCCo and 100*), the rate of donation standard increased to 10.6% after 12 hours, 35.1% after 24 hours and 12.5% after 36 hours (table 3.24). At the time of donation, none of the patients achieved both PiCCo/100 20 targets and 56% achieved both PiCCo/100* targets. The targets of infusion and blood transfusion. The main goal of body infusion control is to optimize all liquids to ensure circulation volume and cardiac flow suitably. During resuscitation, we kept the average CVP at 6.30 ± 3.97 at the beginning of resuscitation stage (T0) and the highest at 8.51 ± 3.81 at. 24 hours of resuscitation (table 3.15). Hormone replacement therapy for brain-dead potential donors. - Vasopressin therapy: Plurad (2012) found that vasopressine in brain-dead donors was affected to the increasing of post-transplanted recovery rate. Our results showed that the incidence of diabetes inspitus gradually decreased to 42.6% after 12 hours and 27% after 24 hours and the time of organ harvesting was 16% (Table 3.16). - Corticosteroid therapy: we had 27.7% reduction in cortisol when diagnosed with brain death, the remaining 42.6% were normal and 29.8% increased cortisol immediately before resuscitation (table 3.10). Follette D (1998) and McElhinney (2001) found methylpresnisolon to be involved in improving lung quality of donors. We use high-dose corticosteroids (methylprednisolone 15mg/kg IV). Results of cortisol after treatment were 15.4%, 42.3% normal and 42.3% increased (chart 3.6). - Thyroid hormone replacement therapy: Howlett found that 81% of patients had decreased T3, 29% of patients had decreased T4, and 23% had normal TSH. After treatment, we had decreased T3 from 91.5% to 44% (chart 3.3); decreased T4 from 4
