Low-dose steroids have shown contradictory results in trials and three recent meta-analyses. We aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of low-dose steroids for severe sepsis and septic shock by Bayesian methodology. Randomized trials from three published meta-analyses were reviewed and entered in both classic and Bayesian databases to estimate relative… CONTINUE READING
