From: Impact of previous sepsis on the accuracy of procalcitonin for the early diagnosis of blood stream infection in critically ill patients

Figure 1

Serum procalcitonin (PCT) level ( Fig . A), white blood cells count (WBC) ( Fig . B) and C-reactive protein (CRP) level ( Fig . C), at the onset of blood stream infection according to its primary ( left boxes , n = 127) or secondary status ( right boxes , n = 62) in critically ill patients with clinical sepsis. Data are presented as box plots with median lines, 25- and 75-percentile boxes, and 10- and 90-percentile error bars. The circles represent the outliers. A log scale is used for the Y-axis in Fig. A. * indicate p < 0.05 between primary and secondary sepsis.
