Key messages

• Multiple organ failure remains a leading cause of mortality in intensive care units.

• Treatment of multiple organ failure is dependent on the removal of the cause and avoidance of tissue hypoxia.

• General therapies include the removal of the septic focus with antibiotics and surgery, and adequate resuscitation with fluids, blood transfusion, and vasoactive agents as necessary.

• Effective resuscitation is vital and can then be followed by organ-specific therapies. There is often no specific treatment for individual organ failure, and support of the organ is all that can be offered.
