Figure 1 Study flow diagram. In total, 329 patients had sepsis or septic shock. The study included 256 patients with sepsis. Patients were divided into a sepsis-induced myocardial dysfunction group (SIMD; n=42) and a without sepsis-induced myocardial dysfunction group (NO-SIMD; n=214) by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). LVEF – left ventricular ejection fraction; GEF – global ejection fraction.
