OBJECTIVE To define the circulating levels of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) during critical illness and to determine their relationship to the severity of illness as measured by the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II score, the development of multiple organ dysfunction, or mortality. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING University hospital intensive care unit. PATIENTS A total of 82… CONTINUE READING
