Abstract:Background: A prospective, non-intervention study was undertaken after ethical committee approval in the Department of Surgery, Index Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, Indore for 01 year time duration from June 2017 to May 2018. A total of 50 patients were included into study. Result: The temperature is not strongly related to mortality in trauma and sepsis patient. Because of p value is more than 0.01 so statistically not significantly related. Above table suggest that out of 21 patients of sepsis 12(57.1%) survived and 9(42.9%) non-survived and out of 29 patients of major trauma 24(82.8%) survived and 5(17.2%) non-survived. Thus, p-value <0.01 statistically significant result. Conclusion: An analysis of observation revealed higher mean lactate levels in non-survivors as compared to survivors. Also mean value of serial lactate levels in non-survivors did not attain normal levels, while that of survivors reached normal levels by 24 hrs in trauma patients and 48 hrs in sepsis patients.
