- •Septic shock patients were hyperosmotic already from the ICU admission (0h).
- •During the first 72h, hyperosmotic curve did not differ between septic patients.
- •Hyperosomolality increased significantly in the first 24h after ICU admission.
- •Septic shock patients suffer from hyperglycaemia and abnormally high urea levels.
- •In septic shock, hyperosmotic levels could be related with myocardial dysfunction.
