OBJECTIVES Cardiovascular failure is an important feature of severe sepsis and mortality in sepsis. The aim of our study was to explore myocardial dysfunction in severe sepsis. DESIGN Prospective experimental study. SETTING Operating room at Intervention Centre, Oslo University Hospital. SUBJECTS Eight Norwegian Landrace pigs. INTERVENTIONS The pigs were anesthetized, a medial sternotomy performed and miniature sensors for wall-thickness measurements attached to the epicardium and… CONTINUE READING
