Abstract

The mortality of surgical patients with septic disease is very high despite intensive care. The identification of high risk patients may be important to determine priorities in patient care and to institute additional therapeutic approaches. It is well established that global immunosuppression occurs in such patients. However, no outcome predictive score focuses on the immune capability of patients.
