From: Brachial artery reactivity in patients with severe sepsis: an observational study

  HV FMD
  Rho P value Rho P value
SOFA (mean) 0.274 0.007 -0.102 0.326
SOFA (maximum) 0.262 0.010 -0.108 0.296
Organ failure-free days, days 0 to 28 0.339 < 0.001 0.050 0.630
ICU-free days, days 0 to 28 0.299 0.003 0.063 0.546
Ventilator-free days, days 0 to 28 0.336 < 0.001 0.189 0.066
  1. HV, hyperemic velocity; FMD, flow-mediated dilation; SOFA (mean), mean sequential organ-failure assessment score (days 0 to 7 after diagnosis);
  2. SOFA (maximum), maximal sequential organ-failure assessment score (days 0 to 7 after diagnosis).
