Patterns and Outcomes Associated With Timeliness of Initial Crystalloid Resuscitation in a Prospective Sepsis and Septic Shock Cohort.
Crit Care Med. 2017 Oct; 45(10):1596-1606.CC

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of this study were to 1) assess patterns of early crystalloid resuscitation provided to sepsis and septic shock patients at initial presentation and 2) determine the association between time to initial crystalloid resuscitation with hospital mortality, mechanical ventilation, ICU utilization, and length of stay.

DESIGN

Consecutive-sample observational cohort.

SETTING

Nine tertiary and community hospitals over 1.5 years.

PATIENTS

Adult sepsis and septic shock patients captured in a prospective quality improvement database inclusion criteria: suspected or confirmed infection, greater than or equal to two systemic inflammatory response criteria, greater than or equal to one organ-dysfunction criteria.

INTERVENTIONS

The primary exposure was crystalloid initiation within 30 minutes or lesser, 31-120 minutes, or more than 120 minutes from sepsis identification.

MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS

We identified 11,182 patients. Crystalloid initiation was faster for emergency department patients (β, -141 min; CI, -159 to -125; p < 0.001), baseline hypotension (β, -39 min; CI, -48 to -32; p < 0.001), fever, urinary or skin/soft-tissue source of infection. Initiation was slower with heart failure (β, 20 min; CI, 14-25; p < 0.001), and renal failure (β, 16 min; CI, 10-22; p < 0.001). Five thousand three hundred thirty-six patients (48%) had crystalloid initiated in 30 minutes or lesser versus 2,388 (21%) in 31-120 minutes, and 3,458 (31%) in more than 120 minutes. The patients receiving fluids within 30 minutes had lowest mortality (949 [17.8%]) versus 31-120 minutes (446 [18.7%]) and more than 120 minutes (846 [24.5%]). Compared with more than 120 minutes, the adjusted odds ratio for mortality was 0.76 (CI, 0.64-0.90; p = 0.002) for 30 minutes or lesser and 0.76 (CI, 0.62-0.92; p = 0.004) for 31-120 minutes. When assessed continuously, mortality odds increased by 1.09 with each hour to initiation (CI, 1.03-1.16; p = 0.002). We observed similar patterns for mechanical ventilation, ICU utilization, and length of stay. We did not observe significant interaction for mortality risk between initiation time and baseline heart failure, renal failure, hypotension, acute kidney injury, altered gas exchange, or emergency department (vs inpatient) presentation.

CONCLUSIONS

Crystalloid was initiated significantly later with comorbid heart failure and renal failure, with absence of fever or hypotension, and in inpatient-presenting sepsis. Earlier crystalloid initiation was associated with decreased mortality. Comorbidities and severity did not modify this effect.
