Methods: Shock index [(SI), heart rate (HR)/systolic blood pressure (BP), bpm/mmHg], LV global longitudinal strain (GLS, 2D-speckle-traking-based, %), ejection fraction (EF, by planimetry), Sepsis-related Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score, and blood tests were assessed in patients with sepsis/septic shock at the admission in the Emergency Department. Follow-up was performed at 7 and 28 days from admission, accounting for all-cause mortality, major co-morbidities and SOFA ≥2.
Results: In consecutive patients meeting inclusion criteria (n=123, 79% of the cohort), SI was },
