Figure 2

Left ventricular fractional shortening in patients with septic shock. Left ventricular fractional shortening decreased to ≤30% in 42.5% and 27.5%, and to ≤20% in 12.5% and 15.0% of patients on the first and second intensive care unit (ICU) days, respectively. There was no significant difference (P = 0.72) in median value between the first and second ICU days.
