General intensive care

There is nothing unique about caring for these patients: Septic shock, acute kidney, or respiratory failures require conventional treatment. The thrombotic element of these conditions favours the use of small doses of heparin. Nutrition is important and must cover the energy expenditure of these patients which is often enormous. Finally, in all cases of infections of traumatic origin, anti-tetanic prophylaxis must be a matter of routine whenever the patient's vaccination status (active immunization) is in doubt or no longer valid.
