Sample text

The physiological basis of critical illness 17 Histamine Most histamine in the body is generated in the granules within mast cells or in basophils. The most important pathophysiologic mechanism of mast cell and basophil histamine is immunologic. These cells, if sensitised by immunoglobulin E antibodies attached to their membranes, degranulate when exposed to the appropriate antigen. Histamine release facilitates vasodilatation and increased capillary permeability. Lipid-derived chemical mediators Cell membrane phospholipids are hydrolysed by phospholipases at a reasonably high rate during inflammation.

This response has three main stages: (1) Vasodilatation – increased blood flow causing phagocytes, clotting factors, antibodies, etc. to be circulated to the area (2) Increased permeability of blood vessels – allows plasma proteins to leave the circulation and access the site of insult (3) Migration of leucocytes to the site of insult In the critically ill, the processes caused by the immune response and resulting inflammation are disordered and out of control. A massive systemic reaction occurs and an excess of inflammatory mediators are released, causing an overwhelming physiological response, ultimately leading to tissue damage and organ dysfunction, as evidenced by the presentation scenario described for Deborah.

Robert had a low-grade pyrexia. Following an MI, an inflammatory response is initiated, leading to the release of mediators by the damaged endothelium to protect the body from invading microorganisms, to limit the extent of blood loss from injury and to promote rapid healing of the tissues involved. This leads to swelling, oedema, redness and heat around the injured myocardium, resulting in a mild fever. This is usually observed within the first 24–48 hours. In addition, patients experience nausea, vomiting and weakness due to a vagal response.
