Skin mottling is frequent and can be associated with an increased mortality rate in ICU patients with septic shock. Its overall incidence in ICU and its impact on outcome is unknown. We aimed to assess the incidence of skin mottling over the knee among all critically ill patients admitted in ICU and its role on their outcome. An observational study over a(More)

Remote ischemic preconditioning may attenuate renal injury and protect the kidney during subsequent inflammatory or ischemic stress. However, the mechanism of such a protection is not well understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of remote ischemic preconditioning on renal resistivity index (RRI) in nine healthy volunteers. In six(More)
