This study evaluates the usefulness of pro-adrenomedullin (precursor of a vasodilatory peptide involved in septic shock pathogenesis) and copeptin (a stable peptide of the arginine vasopressin precursor) to predict, at the moment of septic shock diagnosis or their changes at 6 hours, the vasopressor requirements (measured by inotropic index and vasopressor dependency ratio) and volume requirement for resuscitation.
