Many parameters have been associated with sepsis prognosis. In the present issue of Critical Care, Kumar and colleagues demonstrate that a preserved cardiac answer to dobutamine evaluated by radionucleotide measurements was associated with a better prognosis during septic shock. In this context, it is interesting to note that not only is the cardiac response to catecholamine stimulation associated with prognosis, but also the vascular and metabolic responses are associated. The ability of… CONTINUE READING
