Table 5 Difference between survivors and non-survivors in median cytokine levels at hour 24

From: Treatment with 24 h–delayed normo- and hyperbaric oxygenation in severe sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture in rats

  Non-survivors Survivors P-value
TNF-α 59,37 (0.37–179.8) 37.52 (0.37–122.6) 0.31
IL-10 1050 (274.1–5318) 450.2 (342.2–627.4) 0.13
IL-6 302.3 (102.8–581.6) 107.9 (20.5–252.2) 0.04*
  1. Survivors defined as rats alive until 72 h after CLP, non-survivors defined as rats dead between 24 and 72 h after CLP
  2. IL interleukin, TNF-α Tumor necrosis factor alfa, CLP cecal ligation and puncture
  3. Values denote medians with IQR. Comparisons were performed using the Mann-Whitney U-test
  4. *p= 0.04 comparing parameter in survivors vs. non-survivors. No other significant differences (p < 0.05) were found
