Figure 1: Patient with severe septic shock due to intra-abdominal sepsis resulting in death. The DBF curve shows a dramatic decrease at 345 minutes, which preceded the decrease in MAP by 93 minutes. Due to severe peripheral vasoconstriction the FPW was unrecordable so that no FPW data was available. DBF: dermal blood flow; MAP: mean arterial pressure.
