Özet

Objective: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of the range of variation of red blood cell (RBC) volume. It can be calculated automatically as part of a standard complete blood count. Our aim in this study is to evaluate the relationship between RDW and mortality in patients with sepsis and septic shock.
