INTRODUCTION Left ventricular (LV) dysfunction is common in septic shock. Its association with the clinical outcome is still controversial. Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) is a useful tool to quantify LV function; however, little knowledge is available about the prognostic value of these TDI variables in septic shock. Therefore, we performed this prospective study to determine the role of TDI variables in septic shock. METHODS Patients with septic shock in a medical intensive care unit were… CONTINUE READING
