Figure 3

Critical illness myopathy and systemic inflammation. Normal (≥3 mV) and abnormal (< 3 mV) direct muscle stimulation compound muscle action potentials (dmCMAP), (a) IL-6 plasma levels, (b) IL-10 plasma levels at median day (25th/75th percentile) 5 (3 to 7) and median day 8 (6 to 10,25). Patients with impaired muscle membrane excitability had significantly higher IL-6 plasma levels but no significant differences of IL-10 plasma levels at both measurement intervals.
