NCT01271114

  Purpose

In hypotensive septic patients with controlled source, an hemodynamic management protocol including hypertonic saline (HS)and terlipressin improves MOD (Multiple Organ Dysfunction) Score by at least 3 points compared to the use of physiologic saline and norepinephrine.

The appropriate design for this trial would be factorial. For the time being, will consider de intervention as a whole unit for this pilot study. In the future an appropriately sized factorial multicentric study shall be necessary.

Other goals of the pilot study:

  1. HS restores preload parameters adequately
  2. HS associated with terlipressin normalizes blood pressure in septic shock
  3. HS associated with terlipressin maintains plasma sodium levels 130-155mEq/L
  4. There is an inverse relationship between plasma sodium and procalcitonin levels
  5. HS increases plasma levels of vasopressin (AVP)
  6. HS rises levels of cortisol but not of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • MOD (Multiple Organ Dysfunction) Score [ Time Frame: daily, as long as the patient stays in the ICU ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hypertonic Saline restores IV fluid response parameters (Pulse Pressure Variation or Systolic Volume Variation) adequately [ Time Frame: First 48 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hypertonic Saline associated with terlipressin maintains plasma sodium levels 130-155mEq/L [ Time Frame: As long as Hypertonic saline plus terlipressin are in use and one week later ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • There is an inverse relationship between plasma sodium and plasma procalcitonin levels measured by a negative Pearson coefficient [ Time Frame: As long as the patient stays in the ICU ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hypertonic Saline associated with terlipressin normalizes blood pressure in septic shock [ Time Frame: First 48 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hypertonic Saline boluses increases plasma levels of vasopressin (AVP) [ Time Frame: First week in ICU ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hypertonic Saline use rises levels of cortisol but not of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) [ Time Frame: First week in ICU ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
