Dependence of oxygen consumption on cardiac output in sepsis.

Abstract

We studied the relationship between oxygen consumption (Vo2) and cardiac output in 17 hemodynamically stable, septic and eight nonseptic ICU patients. Each received 300 ml of fresh-frozen plasma or 25% albumin with up to 500 ml of crystalloids, in addition to regular maintenance fluids; this treatment increased pulmonary wedge pressure (WP) by 3 to 4 mm Hg… (More)
