Brief Summary:
Severe sepsis and septic shock are causes of admission in intensive care units.Modification of natriuretic peptid including NT-proBNP and cardiac autonomic nervous system alteration are reported in sepsis shock and severe sepsis and seems to link to patient prognosis admitted to intensive care units.

Condition or disease
Septic Shock Severe Sepsis

Detailed Description:

Our principal aim is to characterize modulation of cardiac sympathic nervous system in sepsis through the study of sinusal change and myocardiac fixing of MIBG.

The second aim is 1)to assess links between alteration of cardiac sympathic nervous system and NT-PRoBNP variations in sepsis and 2)To know prognostic impact in sympathic nervous system compare to NTproBNP.
