Title: Infections of the Nervous System in the Critical Care Unit
Author: Schmutzhard, Erich
Abstract: Acute bacterial meningitis In acute bacterial meningitis earliest possible initiation of antimicrobial chemotherapy is essential, delay by few hours increases long-term morbidity and mortality. Earliest possible recognition of an accompanying sepsis syndrome or septic shock is also the basis for best possible management and outcome. In resource poor settings as well as in patients <55yrs the adjunctive therapy with corticosteroids is dispensable, not contributing to reduction of morbidity or mortality
