An EGDT-like protocol, a protocol driven by SBP and shock index goals that resuscitated with fluids and vasopressors, or a “standard care” arm that was non-protocol driven.

Mortality at 90 days was found rgdt be similar for EGDT Among patients with severe sepsis or septic shock, what is the efficacy of early goal-directed therapy EGDT in decreasing the risk of mortality? N Engl J Med. The Rivers trial randomized patients with severe sepsis or septic shock at a single urban Detroit ED to a protocol of early goal-directed therapy EGDT vs.

There was no differences in mortality between the interventions.

He said some large, academic centers continue to use it, while others nejmm never did or have abandoned EGDT. Your email address will not be published.

Confirmed: Aggressive Septic Shock Protocol Does Not Reduce Deaths

Funding for this research was provided by the U. The New England Journal of Medicine. Controversy swirls around early goal-directed therapy in sepsis: And there is really no one [in emergency medicine] who is ambivalent about sgdt goal-directed therapy.

A total of 3, patients at hospitals in seven countries were included in the latest analysis. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Among the main findings: Highly aggressive early edt therapy EGDT for patients hospitalized with septic shock did not result in better outcomes than usual care and was associated with higher hospitalization costs, based on a meta-analysis.

Early goal-directed therapy EGDT was not associated with a significant reduction in deaths, but it was associated with greater use of intensive care and cardiovascular support in the analysis, reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. Is EGDT the standard of care?

A highly aggressive treatment protocol for patients hospitalized with septic shock proved to be no more effective in terms of mortality or resource utilization than usual care in a patient-level meta-analysis combining results from three large, multicenter trials. Angus told MedPage Today that all treatment centers need to have an early warning system in place to identify sepsis patients early.

Rivers Trial – Wiki Journal Club

Early goal-directed therapy in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock. He created the ‘Critically Ill Airway’ course and teaches on numerous courses around the world.

After finishing his medical degree at the University of Auckland, he continued post-graduate training in New Zealand as well as Australia’s Northern Territory, Perth egd Melbourne. Rivers E, et nejn.


Angus and colleagues conceded that while the overall sample size was large, some clinically important subgroups remained small. The effect of a quantitative resuscitation strategy on mortality in patients with sepsis: Among patients with severe sepsis or septic shock, early goal-directed therapy decreases the risk of mortality.

CVP has been known to be a poor surrogate for blood volume in critically ill patients as far back as If they are in shock that’s when we need to be aggressive. The protocol was adopted worldwide by some medical centers, but not others, after a single-center study by Egdh Rivers, MD, of Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital, and colleagues found EGDT to reduce hospital mortality from Mortality reduction with EGDT has successfully been egxt several other institutions [1] [2] with a NNT of 5 for outcomes similar to the primary outcome of the Rivers trial.

While there was no difference in the total volume of administered fluid or percentage of patients receiving dobutamine at 72 hours, patients in the EGDT received more of both therapies in the first 6 hours. Protocols for implementing EGDT usually result in more fluid being administered, more use of vasoactive medication and more use of blood transfusion which may lead to:.

Lactate clearance vs central venous oxygen saturation as goals of early sepsis therapy: The newly published meta-analysis, dubbed PRISM, included a subgroup analysis of the sickest patients included in the three trials. Navigation menu Personal tools Create account Log in.
