Table 2 Temperature, metabolic and echocardiography data in severely septic mice

From: The metabolic phenotype of rodent sepsis: cause for concern?

  Baseline 10-h 24-h

  1. Data were taken from severely septic mice at baseline (0 h) and before and after rewarming at 10 h (6 mice) and 24 h (3 mice). Rewarming took place over 1.5 h. Mice were only anaesthetized for the period of echocardiography. Values denote mean ± standard deviation. *p < 0.05 paired t test comparing the values to corresponding baseline (0 h) values. **p < 0.05 paired t test comparing post-warming values to their corresponding pre-warming value.
