VISEP Trail Data

LHA-ID
7V7N3GM7DE-5
Motivation

The role of intensive insulin therapy in patients with severe sepsis is uncertain. Fluid resuscitation improves survival among patients with septic shock, but evidence is lacking to support the choice of either crystalloids or colloids. We compared intensive insulin therapy with conventional insulin therapy and HES with Ringer’s lactate.
