BSP authored article, The relationship between ICU hypotension and in-hospital mortality and morbidity in septic patients, published in Intensive Care Medicine

(Boston, June 2018) – Boston Strategic Partners authored an article recently published in Intensive Care Medicine. The article titled “The relationship between ICU hypotension and in-hospital mortality and morbidity in septic patients” is an analysis evaluating septic adults with intensive care unit (ICU) stays ≥24 h from 2010 to 2016.

This analysis was conducted using a comprehensive Electronic Health Record (EHR) database of clinical and administrative records spanning 273 million encounters for 60 million patients in 600+ hospitals across the US.

This observational study examined the outcomes of mortality, acute kidney injury and myocardial injury within sepsis patients in the ICU with mean arterial pressure measurements that fell below the thresholds of 55 mmHg, 65 mmHg, 75 mmHg and 85 mmHg. Hypotension exposure was measured via time below threshold as well as by time-weighted average, which takes into account both the degree of hypotension and time spent in a hypotensive state. This publication should promote interesting discussion as risks for mortality, AKI and myocardial injury were apparent by 85 mmHg, and for mortality and AKI risk progressively worsened at lower thresholds.
