Figure 2

Pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and procalcitonin (PCT) levels in surviving as compared with nonsurviving patients. Data from the patients on admission are shown. Patients were grouped (a, c) by clinical diagnosis of sepsis according to international guidelines or (b, d) by circulating PCT levels in excess of 1 ng/ml. Solid lines denote median values, boxes represent 25th to 75th percentiles and whiskers indicate the range.
