Presepsin values and Prognostic Nutritional Index predict mortality in intensive care unit patients with sepsis: a prospective observational study

Sepsis is a major cause of mortality for critically ill patients. This study aimed to determine whether presepsin values can predict mortality in patients with sepsis.

A total of 83 adult patients diagnosed with sepsis were prospectively examined. Presepsin values were measured immediately after ICU admission and on Days 2, 3, and 5 after ICU admission. Glasgow Prognostic Score, neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio, platelet to lymphocyte ratio, Prognostic Index, and Prognostic Nutritional Index were also determined at baseline. For category classi
