The recently revised Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) guidelines identify triage in the emergency room as “time zero,” starting the clock on measuring compliance with the bundle elements. This measurement is central to the Campaign’s goals of performance improvement and mortality reduction. When determining patient eligibility for the three- and six-hour bundles, clinicians must understand the rationale for establishing triage as time zero and recognize how to implement the bundles in various scenarios.
During the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) April 23 webcast, The New Surviving Sepsis Campaign Bundles: From Time Zero to Tomorrow, senior leaders of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign will focus on the revised SSC bundles and the rationale for the changes. Additionally, they will highlight ongoing research efforts that are dependent upon the data from bundle implementation.
This event, part of SCCM’s newest webcast series, provides strategies for successful application of the SSC guidelines. An initiative of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) and SCCM, the SSC aims to improve the management, diagnosis and treatment of sepsis in order to reduce its high mortality rate.
