We have two previous guests today that are returning to talk about a familiar topic: sepsis. There has been a lot of coverage recently but we want to cover it from a different angle by getting back to basics while including some of the key updates from recent literature and guidelines. This recording was originally made for theEmergency Quality Network (E-QUAL) which is part of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). It was our pleasure to work with ACEP to provide this content and we hope you enjoy it, as well.
Sepsis has been covered in detail, but we sometimes forget the basics. This primer is to cover some of the key points to remember when managing the septic patient with basics starting at recognition and diagnosis all the way to managing and transferring the septic shock patient. Below, there is an attached PowerPoint which discusses these points further. We encourage you to listen to the podcast for the details as the PowerPoint is more of an outline.
For those who are PAs and NPs, we encourage you to also listen to an additional piece which will be available throughE-QUAL on ACEP's website. As discussed there, sepsis does not care who is managing the condition. The important thing is to recognize and treat. Our guests for this talk, Fritz Fuller and Michelle Perkins, agree to these vital points.
These show notes are brief, but the podcast itself goes into a lot of the key details and additional supporting information is also available on the PowerPoint presentation which you can find below.
