PURPOSE: Septic shock (SS) is a leading cause of intensive care unit (ICU) morbidity and mortality. It remains unclear what the correlation is between diastolic dysfunction severity and clinical outcomes in SS. Furthermore, whether sepsis causes transient diastolic dysfunction or whether diastolic dysfunction is a preceding condition has never been studied.
