Table 2 Analysis of correlation between ventriculoarterial coupling and left ventricular ejection fraction in septic shock patients a

From: Ventriculoarterial decoupling in human septic shock

  LVEF normal (≥50%) LVEF reduced (<50%)
Ea/Ees SB normal (<1.36), n 2 2
Ea /Ees SB altered (>1.36), n 6 15
  1. aEa, Arterial elastance; Ea/Ees SB , Single-beat ventriculoarterial coupling; Ees, End-systolic elastance; LVEF, Left ventricular ejection fraction. P = 0.5 by Fisher’s exact test.
