Correction of Numbers or the Final Outcomes in Taking Care of Critically Ill Patients: A Narrative Review

Multiple organ dysfunction syndromes are extremely common in the ICU. The failure of different organs including the heart, kidney, lung and circulation has prompted specialists to consider replacement therapies. Treatment programs in the intensive care units focus on two main goals: 1- Correcting numbers and clinical conditions 2- Fixing the underlying problem. This fundamental question raises that can the outcomes be improved by the remediation of clinical conditions and replacement therapies until the underlying problem is eliminated? This study evaluated the scientific evidence for some of these replacement therapies. Despite the good effects of replacement therapies, still it cannot well manage the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. To conclude it can be stated that the current treatments are not the best option, but they are the best available one at the moment. Perhaps this critical point may lead to a new mindset in identifying the pathophysiology of critical illnesses and as a result may provide appropriate therapeutic strategies.
