Course Content

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 the short-term mortality.

Learning Outcomes

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
