The purpose

This is an observational study to understand the changes in alveolar dead space in medical critically ill patients with severe infection (severe sepsis) requiring mechanical ventilation and the possibility to predict multi-organ failure. The measurement of alveolar dead space used to require sophisticated equipment and time. New ventilators have microprocessors that allow rapid mathematical calculation with minimal intervention.
