Getting Serious About Sepsis: It’s Common and Deadly

This program provides evidence-based information and tools for medical/surgical, critical care, and emergency room nurses caring for septic patients. Septic states develop due to an evolving inflammatory, immune response to bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic infections. It is common and often leads to lengthy hospitalizations and mortality.

A definition of sepsis has emerged that allows clinicians to approach sepsis as a continuum of clinical events. Evidence has shown when diagnosed promptly and adequately treated, the negative outcomes of sepsis can be reduced.
