1991). Also, the correlation of sepsis scores to mortality only depends on organ failure data, not on bacteriological data (Goris et al. 1985; Ponting et al. 1987). Most studies could not reliably demonstrate positive blood cultures or elevated endotoxin levels previous to MOF and sepsis/SIRS, or even in established MOF (McArdle et al. 1975; Meakins et al. 1980; Goris et al. 1985; Nerlich 1989; Schoeffel et al. 1989; Marshall and Sweeney 1990). The positive predictive value of a positive blood culture for subsequent septic shock in one study was 15<170, and of endotoxemia only 49<170 (van Deventer et al.

1988) concluded that maximizing D02 increases V0 2 and survival. This correlation, however, was exclusively present in a subgroup admitted with low values of D02. In hyperdynamic patients, D02 was increased but V0 2 remained absolutely unchanged while OER decreased. In the subgroup of hyperdynamic trauma patients, survival was also unaltered. In hyperdynamic sepsis patients mortality was lower, though not significantly so, despite identical values of V0 2. High output failure and supply dependency probably are not caused by an impaired utilization of oxygen, as V0 2 increases when D02 increases.
