In experimental human endotoxaemia, hyperoxia had no effect on levels of inflammatory mediators [44], and in a small observational study of patients with suspected sepsis in the emergency department, there were no significant differences in mortality rates between hyperoxic and normoxic patients [32].
In the past decade, selective LPS-adsorption that requires a precise definition of the level of endotoxaemia has been proven to be successfully applicable in the complex treatment of sepsis [11-13].

While there is no established marker of gut dysfunction [13], it is well documented that severe AP is associated with impaired gut microcirculation [14], motility [15], mucosa [16], barrier function [17], development of endotoxaemia [18], and altered gut-lymph components [19, 20].

Most surgeons agree that the treatment of ileal perforation should be surgery, as this eliminates peritoneal soiling and endotoxaemia. There is, however, no uniformity of opinion as to the extent of surgery and several procedures ranging from simple closure of the perforation, wedge excision and anastomosis or segmental resection and anastomosis to ileostomy with mucus fistulad (7,8,9,10,11)
Strong correlation was reported between endotoxaemia and high circulating levels of vWF.
