  1. Variables included in regression were age, BMI, serum lactate at onset, vasopressor support (yes/no during stay in the ICU), mechanical ventilation (yes/no during stay in the ICU), renal replacement therapy (yes/no during stay in the ICU), feeding intolerance (yes/no during the first week), intra-abdominal pressure (highest value recorded during the first week), SOFA score (highest value recorded during the first week), and AGIUS score (highest value recorded during the first week)
  2. BMI body mass index, OR odds ratio, CI confidence intervals
