Early detection of sepsis, with the timely administration of appropriate antibiotics, appears to be the single most important factor in reducing morbidity and mortality from sepsis. The Society of Critical Care Medicine is partnering with The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to offer Sepsis Without Walls: Ensuring All Patients Receive Optimal, Time-Sensitive Care. This one-day interactive conference will focus on strategies to identify, diagnose and manage patients who present with signs and symptoms of sepsis, irrespective of their care unit.
It has become increasingly apparent that there is a long delay in both the recognition of sepsis and the initiation of appropriate therapy in many patients. This translates into an increased incidence of progressive organ failure and a higher mortality. Healthcare providers, therefore, need a high index of suspicion for the presence of sepsis and must begin appropriate antimicrobials quickly. Join the multiprofessional panel of leading experts who will focus on problem solving through case studies in developing effective strategies in specific patient populations.
Register today for the Sepsis Without Walls conference, which will be held September 25, 2015, at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
