Ang II, angiotensin II; Ang-(1-7), angiotensin-(1-7); Organ support: invasive mechanical ventilation, haemopurification or haemodynamic support. Non-normally distributed data are expressed as median (25th percentiles, 75th percentiles) or percentages; “-”, chi-square tests are invalid because of small incidence in the non-hepatic dysfunction group.
