So the three of us are back together and going to take on Sepsis!
It’s vital to have a sound understanding of sepsis. It has a huge morbidity and mortality but importantly there is so much that we can do both prehospital and in hospital to improve patient outcomes.
In the podcast we cover the following;
- Scale of problem
- Different bodies; NICE/Sepsis Trust/3rd international consensus definition including qSOFA
- Handover and pre alerts
- Treatment; Sepsis 6
- The evidence base behind treatment
- Contentious areas
- Prehospital abx
- Fever control
We hope the podcast helps refresh your knowledge on the topic and brings about some clarity on some contentious points. As always don’t just take our word for it, go and have a look at the primary literature referenced below.
