  1. Multivariate analysis based on the randomization group (low-MAP or high-MAP target), lactate at inclusion, age, SAPS II, history of chronic arterial hypertension, history of ischemic heart disease, and MAP, fluid intake, vasopressor dose and need for mechanical ventilation at inclusion. We did not include the pH, SOFA, acute kidney injury or PaO2/FiO2 ratio for competing with other variables. Ninety-one patients were excluded because of missing data on at least 1 adjustment variable
