Robson WP, Daniel R. Long-term outcomes in critically ill septic patients who survived cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This approach involves adjustments of cardiac preload, afterload, and contractility to balance oxygen delivery with an increased oxygen demand before surgery.

Patients with acute pulmonary edema were excluded from the trio of EGDT trials without specifying a cardiogenic or non-cardiogenic etiology acute lung injury ALI. Outcomes from implementing early goal-directed therapy for severe sepsis and septic shock: At that time, no structured formal worldwide accepted protocols for early identification and treatment of patients with sepsis existed.

Furthermore, the emphasis on crystalloids for IV resuscitation is congruent with SSC guidelines update and a Cochrane update on fluid resuscitation of critically patients.

In response, a systems-based approach, similar to that in acute myocardial infarction, stroke and trauma, called early goal-directed therapy was compared to standard care and this clinical trial resulted in a significant mortality reduction.
