Introduction: The aim of the study was to evaluate the usefulness of impedance cardiography (ICG) in monitoring of septic patients.Material and methods: It was a prospective study performed in 20 consecutive patients with sepsis. The criteria of sepsis according to the definition accepted at the ACCP/SCCM conference were the basis for being enrolled in the study. Six patients died in the course of the study and the investigated group was divided into subgroups treated effectively and ineffectively.Results: The quality of ICG signal was determined in all 128 measurements. The quality of ICG was ³70% in 53.91% of the measurements, ³30% in 88.28% of the measurements. In 11.72% of the measurements the signal quality was
