Total cholesterol and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels as prognostic markers for urosepsis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This study was aimed to determine and compared the total cholesterol and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels as a prognosis in urosepsis patients treated at the RSUD. Dr. Soetomo Hospital. There were 30 patients involved in this study and was assigned to the test for total cholesterol and CRP level at the day of admission, three days later, and on the last day (14th days) of sepsis or on the day of the death. The variables were tested using the Spearman’s rho test with software SPSS 20. This study found 15 patients who were in septic condition, 14 patients had severe sepsis and one patient had septic shock. There were statistically significant between total cholesterol and CRP levels in determining the outcome of urosepsis patient. The coefficient correlation of total cholesterol was better than CRP. The low total cholesterol levels and high CRP levels can be used as predictors of worsening urosepsisprognosis. Total cholesterol levels showed better performance than CRP as a prognostic marker for urosepsis.
