Researchers in Europe prospectively characterised renin in an ICU population to determine if it performs well as a marker of tissue-perfusion. In a proof-of-concept analysis, they compared renin with lactate as a predictor of ICU mortality. Based on the results, renin served as a useful marker of circulatory function and outperformed lactate in predicting... Read more
