Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a systemic disease that develops as a result of activation of the production of vasoactive mediators by the ovaries against the background of stimulation of superovulation. OHSS is characterized by an increase in the permeability of the capillary walls, which leads to the release of intravascular fluid into the extravascular space, its accumulation in the third space and hemoconcentration. Severe OHSS is characterized by the risk of thrombosis, impaired liver function, kidney function and the occurrence of adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). In these clinical guidelines, the main provisions for the prognosis, diagnosis, prevention and intensive care of OHSS are presented, including the principles of treatment of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH).

Keywords: ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, intensive care, OHSS prevention

The hemostatic system is a frequent subject of interest of critical care. Critical hemostasis has been studied most commonly using thromboelastography. Presented study report the experience in the use of special TEG technology fictional fibrinogen test. As the main working area of FF-test should be marked posthemorrhagic coagulopathy, a situation demanding close attention to the function of the platelets when combined with hyperfibrinogenemia (increase in fibrinogen associated with nonspecific inflammation, gestational hyperofibrinogenemia). A significant difference (more than 2 g/l) between the level of fibrinogen of the plasma is estimated by the method of Claus and FF-test can serve as a marker of dysfibrinogenemia. The clinical importance of the methodology is a predictor of thrombotic and haemorrhagic problems, the diagnostic marker, a reference point for the purpose of transfusion therapy.

Experience of Treatment of Seasonal Influenza, Complicated by Viral and Bacterial Pneumonia: a Multicenter  Retrospective Study. Intensive Care Herald. 2016;2:46–50.

Тhe aim of the study. To conduct a comparative analysis of the experience of intensive care of severe viral-bacterial pneumonia, complicated by ARDS. Materials and methods. We conducted a retrospective analysis of clinical, historical, laboratory and instrumental data which were done by comparing the array of indicators for the periods (1) 2009 and (2) 2015–2016. We used the standard methods of investigations, including clinical, instrumental and laboratory methods. Results. The period 2015–2016 was characterized by an early hospitalization of patients in the ICU, a quick decision to intubate the patients and the rejection of non-invasive respiratory support, the expansion of indications for extrapulmonary oxygenation procedures and for renal replacement therapy.


  1. Following the principles of intensive treatment of severe viral and bacterial pneumonia flu season A(H1N1) have improved outcomes in the studied group of patients.
  2. Initial experience of the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) demonstrated the perspective for achieving optimal oxygenation without the ventilator-associated lung injury. The criteria for the initiation of ECMO can be moved into the area of critical values decrease the oxygen fraction, plateau pressure and positive end-expiratory pressure.
  3. Methods of renal replacement therapy with the use of membranes with the function of cytokine adsorption can neutralize the systemic inflammatory response.
