Abstract

Sepsis is one of the leading drivers of mortality and resource use in the intensive care unit (ICU). Any intervention improving management would be of great help to thousands of patients. Apart from treatment of the underlying cause and appropriate antibiotic treatment a major area in sepsis patients is hemodynamic management. Unfortunately, the amount of evidence to guide the clinician in this difficult topic is very limited.
