We report on a case of a 43-year-old man who developed reversible myocardial depression and pericarditis related to severe sepsis secondary to rectosigmoid colonic perforation. The management of this patient was aided by the use of a continuous thermodilution cardiac output catheter and monitor, recently introduced in clinical practice.
