Observational Study of ICU Patients with Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS)

Research Question:
Do patients with different causes of severe Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) have similar or different severity of illness and recovery rates? What are the biological similarities and differences between patients with severe SIRS caused by different illnesses? Will the biological tests we do in this study help us to predict how sick patients will become and how their health will be after the severe SIRS is over?

Basic Study Information

An observational research study of subjects admitted to the ICU with severe SIRS (and/or sepsis). For ICU subjects enrolled, the study involves blood and urine testing and research measurements of blood flow using ultrasound. At selected time points, healthy subjects will also be recruited as needed for collection of healthy blood samples for comparison studies.
