PURPOSE: Critical illness leads to profound muscle catabolism, and muscle dysfunction is present long after ICU discharge despite full recovery of other organ failures. Retrospective data indicate that decreased muscle mass at ICU admission associates to lower ICU-free days and higher mortality in elderly patients. Recently, pectoralis muscle area (PMA) measured on chest CT scanning has been found to be a useful surrogate of skeletal muscle mass in COPD and healthy individuals. To better clarify the impact of skeletal muscle mass on critical illness, we took advantage of the PMA measurement at ICU admission and investigated its association with patients’ severity score and with short term, in-hospital clinical outcomes.
