BACKGROUND & AIMS Skin perfusion alterations are early and strong predictors of death in patients with septic shock. Cirrhosis is associated with systemic vasodilation and increases mortality from septic shock. We aimed at assessing whether the mottling score and tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) could be used as early predictors of death in cirrhotic patients with septic shock. METHODS This observational study included cirrhotic patients with septic shock. Each 6 h during the first 24 h, we… CONTINUE READING
