It is a prospective observational study, in two 15-bed intensive care units, including adult patients with septic shock who have a mean arterial pressure (MAP) < 65 mmHg within the first three hours after the start of resuscitation. For every patient, the physician taking care of the patient should have already decided to initiate NE or to increase its dose in order to achieve a MAP value of at least 65mmHg without any other change of the associated therapy (fluid administration, ventilator settings, other drugs). The study was approved by the institutional review board of our institution (Comité de Protection des Personnes, Paris-Ile-de-France VII). Informed patient (or next-of-kin) consent was obtained from all patients.
Data collection: demographic and clinical information (origin of sepsis, major elements of the clinical history) were collected. The volume of fluids administered before inclusion, the use of mechanical ventilation and the interval time between the start of resuscitation and inclusion (T0) were also recorded.
Hemodynamic data: At T0 and at T1, defined as the time a MAP value of at least 65 mmHg was reached after initiating NE (or increasing its dose), heart rate (HR), systolic arterial pressure (SAP), diastolic arterial pressure (DAP), MAP and blood lactate concentration were collected.
Transthoracic echocardiographic data: Echocardiographic measurements were performed at T0 and T1.
Transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) examination were performed with 3.75 MHZ probe using a CX50 Philips and a Vivid i (GE Healthcare) machine. Patients were on supine flat or lateral supine positions depending on their respiratory tolerance. A four- and five-chamber apical views were used in order to collect the following variables: left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) calculated by the biplane method of disks summation (modified Simpson's rule), velocity-time integral (VTI) of the sub-aortic flow, tissue Doppler imaging of tricuspid annular motion (Sa), tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) measured by M-mode echocardiography, the peak early (E) and late (A) transmitral flow velocity, the mean early diastolic velocity (Ea) of the lateral mitral annulus, the ratios E/A and E/Ea and tissue Doppler imaging of mean systolic velocity of the lateral mitral annulus (Sm). All the parameters were averaged over three beats or five beats in case of atrial fibrillation.
