Table 3 Relationship between magnitude of cerebral desaturation and primary and secondary outcomes

From: Decreases in cerebral saturation in patients with septic shock are associated with increased risk of death: a prospective observational single center study

Outcome Outcome present Outcome absent p value
CAM positive    
 % Time 0.0 [0.0–1.5] 0.0 [0.0–0.3] 0.79
 AUT/h 2.9 [0.2–8.4] 9.3 [1.2–16.0] 0.41
AKI    
 % Time 2.0 [0.7–6.3] 2.1 [0.8–21.5] 0.51
 AUT/h 2.9 [0.2–8.4] 12.6 [0.3–21.2] 0.59
Death    
 % Time 0.9 [0.0–7.2] 0.0 [0.0–0.3] 0.43

  1. There was no difference in SctO2 between groups with respect to the presence of acute kidney injury (AKI) nor being Confusion Assessment Method (CAM-ICU) positive. Patients who died had decreases in SctO2 of greater magnitude than those that survived. Data are presented as median [interquartile range]. Values are represented as median [interquartile range]
  2. % Time percentage of time spent below an SctO2 of 65 %
  3. AUT area under threshold (% min−1 hr−1)
