Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the intraocular pressure (IOP) changes in patients in intensive care unit (ICU) and the parameters that cause these changes.
Material and Methods: In total, 304 eyes of 152 patients were examined. IOP and central corneal thickness (CCT) were measured. Age, sex, hospitalization (surgical/non-surgical causes), type of ventilation (spontaneous, intubated, non-invasive continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), Glasgow coma scale, use of hypertonic solution and sedation status were evaluated.
Results: The mean age was 63.52±21.47 (range: 18–96) years, and the male/female ratio was 73/79. The mean hospitalization time was 30.91±47.80 (8-297) days, and the mean Glasgow coma scale score was 9.61±4.42. While 33 patients (21.7%) had hypertonic solution, 28 (18.4%) were sedated. The mean IOP was measured as 13.81±3.58 (6–28) mmHg. In 5 patients, the IOP was more than 20 mmHg, and in 14 patients, it was less than 10 mmHg. It was observed that gender and hospitalization diagnosis had no effect on the IOP change (p=0.97, p=0.814, respectively). When the patients were evaluated according to their respiration types, there was no statistically significant difference in IOP values between patients with spontaneous respiration and intubated patients (p=0.261), but non-invasive CPAP patients were significantly different from patients with spontaneous breathing (p=0.035) and intubated patients (p0.001). In addition, the use of hypertonic solution and sedation significantly decreased IOP (p0.001 in both groups).
Conclusion: Some changes in IOP were observed due to some applications in the ICU. These changes are often not significant in patients with no eye problems. However, patients with a glaucoma diagnosis or susceptibility to glaucoma, as well as patients with simultaneous IOP reduction, should be carefully monitored for IOP changes.
