“Understand the impact of sepsis on the health system”
Sepsis is a common medical emergency with a high risk of mortality. This article will examine the management of sepsis in adult patients. It will focus on several key interventions: early identification of sepsis, treatment priorities, the most effective first-line pharmacological approach, and the short-term mortality following sepsis.
Prompt recognition and management can dramatically improve survival in patients with sepsis, as well as reduce short-term mortality.
In this session, you will:
- Differentiate between the formal definitions of sepsis
- Recognize the priority treatment of sepsis
- Identify the priorities of the RR teams
- Understand the impact of sepsis on the health system
