Lactate clearance vs central venous oxygen saturation as goals of early sepsis therapy: a randomized clinical trial.
CONTEXT Goal-directed resuscitation for severe sepsis and septic shock has been reported to reduce mortality when applied in the emergency department. OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis ofExpand

Association between arterial hyperoxia following resuscitation from cardiac arrest and in-hospital mortality.
CONTEXT Laboratory investigations suggest that exposure to hyperoxia after resuscitation from cardiac arrest may worsen anoxic brain injury; however, clinical data are lacking. OBJECTIVE To testExpand

MULTICENTER STUDY OF EARLY LACTATE CLEARANCE AS A DETERMINANT OF SURVIVAL IN PATIENTS WITH PRESUMED SEPSIS
We sought to determine (a) if early lactate clearance is associated with improved survival in emergency department patients with severe sepsis and (b) the concordance between central venous oxygenExpand

The Sequential Organ Failure Assessment score for predicting outcome in patients with severe sepsis and evidence of hypoperfusion at the time of emergency department presentation*
Objectives:Organ failure worsens outcome in sepsis. The Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score numerically quantifies the number and severity of failed organs. We examined the utility ofExpand

Proof of principle: The predisposition, infection, response, organ failure sepsis staging system*
Objective:In an effort to improve upon the traditional sepsis syndrome definitions, the predisposition, infection, response, organ dysfunction (PIRO) model was proposed to better characterize sepsis.Expand

Association between timing of antibiotic administration and mortality from septic shock in patients treated with a quantitative resuscitation protocol*
Objective:We sought to determine the association between time to initial antibiotics and mortality of patients with septic shock treated with an emergency department-based early resuscitationExpand

Multicenter study of central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO(2)) as a predictor of mortality in patients with sepsis.
STUDY OBJECTIVE Abnormal (both low and high) central venous saturation (ScvO(2)) is associated with increased mortality in emergency department (ED) patients with suspected sepsis. METHODS This wasExpand
