Multi-organ-failure (MOF) with and without sepsis: differences in incidence and pattern of detected arrhythmias

Background and objectives

Aim of the present study was to prospectively examine if there is a difference in spectrum of arrhythmias occurring in patients with Elebute and Stoner score (≥ 12, group 1) - quantified sepsis in relation to MOF patients without sepsis (group 2). Group 3: ICU patients without severe MOF and without sepsis.

Methods

24 h Holter-monitoring, APACHE-II and sepsis-scoring; plasma levels of cytokines.

Results

See table.

Conclusions

In our pilot study, no significant higher incidence of ventricular arrhythmias has been seen in MOF patients with and without sepsis.
