PURPOSE: Recent research has demonstrated an association between hypoalbuminemia and mortality in patients with septic shock. Multiple randomized controlled trials have found no benefit of albumin transfusion as compared to crystalloid transfusion for fluid resuscitation in patients with septic shock. Our aim was to confirm the association of hypoalbuminemia with mortality in septic shock and explore a possible association of albumin transfusion with mortality.
