History: No changes posted
  Purpose

During infections (sepsis) bloodflow in small vessels (microcirculation) becomes disturbed. Restoration of bloodpressure and cardiac performance may not be sufficient to correct these alterations. Magnesium is a potent vasodilator which may be used to open up the small vessels, in order to reduce organ failure.


Condition Intervention
Severe Sepsis
Septic Shock
Drug: Magnesium Sulfate

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • microvascular flow index [ Time Frame: 1 hour ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Directly prior to and after 1 hour of magnesium sulphate (MgS) infusion (2 gram) systemic hemodynamic variables, sublingual SDF images and standard laboratory tests, were obtained.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
severe sepsis and septic shock Drug: Magnesium Sulfate
2 gram in 1 hour

Detailed Description:

In a single-center open label study we evaluated the effects of magnesium sulphate (MgS) infusion on the sublingual microcirculation perfusion in fluid resuscitated patients with severe sepsis and septic shock within the first 48 hours after ICU admission. Directly prior to and after 1 hour of magnesium sulphate (MgS) infusion (2 gram) systemic hemodynamic variables, sublingual SDF images and standard laboratory tests, were obtained.
