Abstract

Patients with severe sepsis/septic shock have abnormal muscle tissue StO(2) upon arrival in the ED. Inability to normalise StO(2) with ED sepsis management is associated with a poor outcome. The role of StO(2) as an early prognostic and potential therapeutic biomarker in severe sepsis or septic shock warrants further exploration.
