INTRODUCTION Currently, there is not enough data available concerning sepsis in developing countries, especially in Latin America. OBJECTIVE We developed a study aimed at determining the frequency, clinical and epidemiological characteristics, and the consequences of sepsis in patients requiring admission to intensive care units in Colombia.

INTRODUCTION Venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide difference (Pv-aCO2) may reflect the adequacy of blood flow during shock states. We sought to test whether the development of Pv-aCO2 during the very early phases of resuscitation is related to multi-organ dysfunction and outcomes in a population of septic shock patients resuscitated targeting the usual(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the prognostic value of the Cv-aCO2/Da-vO2 ratio combined with lactate levels during the early phases of resuscitation in septic shock. METHODS Prospective observational study in a 60-bed mixed ICU. One hundred and thirty-five patients with septic shock were included. The resuscitation protocol targeted mean arterial pressure, pulse(More)
BACKGROUND Sepsis has several clinical stages, and mortality rates are different for each stage. Our goal was to establish the evolution and the determinants of the progression of clinical stages, from infection to septic shock, over the first week, as well as their relationship to 7-day and 28-day mortality. METHODS This is a secondary analysis of a(More)
