NAVARRO CESPEDES, Juan Manuel; ALVAREZ GONZALEZ, Idalis  e  MARTELL BETANCOURT, Nelson Lázaro. Behaviour of the albumin in pediatric patients in the stages of sepsis. Rev cuba cienc informat [online]. 2020, vol.14, n.4, pp.162-173.  Epub 01-Dez-2020. ISSN 2227-1899.

The proteins constitute one of the most important structural elements of the organism, within them the albumin is the most abundant and it is considered essential for the transport of diverse substances as well as to maintain the water hydric balance. This prompted a study on how their blood levels affect human health. The goal of this paper is to determine the behavior of albumin and its influence on the evolution of pediatric patients in different stages of sepsis. For it a database was elaborated with pediatric patients in different stages of sepsis in which all the variables of interest for the study, including the albumin level, were collected. Statistical analysis was carried out using contingency tables, V de Cramer, Artificial Intelligence techniques, among others; to get the results. Hypoalbuminemia as a factor that increases mortality due to septic shock in pediatric patients, even more so if it is associated with comorbidities such as oncohematological diseases was showed. The Albumin levels can influence the evolution of pediatric patients with sepsis and could become a predictor of mortality.

Palavras-chave : albumin level; stage of sepsis; comorbidities; status at discharge; contingency tables.
