Multi-organ-failure (MOF) with and without sepsis: differences in incidence and pattern of detected arrhythmias
Critical Care volume 1, Article number: P030 (1997)
Background and objectives
Aim of the present study was to prospectively examine if there is a difference in spectrum of arrhythmias occurring in patients with Elebute and Stoner score (≥ 12, group 1) - quantified sepsis in relation to MOF patients without sepsis (group 2). Group 3: ICU patients without severe MOF and without sepsis.
24 h Holter-monitoring, APACHE-II and sepsis-scoring; plasma levels of cytokines.
In our pilot study, no significant higher incidence of ventricular arrhythmias has been seen in MOF patients with and without sepsis.
