ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that offers information on the use of intensive insulin therapy (IIT) and conventional insulin therapy (CIT) for reducing in-hospital mortality rate of patients with septic shock treated with hydrocortisone. As stated 509 patients with severe sepsis and multiple organ dysfunction received intravenous (IV) hydrocortison for examination. However, it concludes that IIT did not reduce mortality rate more than conventional therapy in patients with septic shock.
