Non-Thyroidal Illness in the ICU: A Syndrome with Different Faces.

Van den Berghe G. Thyroid. 2014 Oct;24(10):1456-1465 PMID: 24845024 Critically ill patients typically present with low or low-normal plasma thyroxine, low plasma triiodothyronine (T3), increased plasma reverse T3 (rT3) concentrations, in the absence of a rise in thyrotropin (TSH).
