Registration is now open for the upcoming webcast, “Sepsis Redefined,” from the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). Due to the overwhelming popularity of the original webcast, a second webcast featuring the same content will take place on Tuesday, April 26, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. Central Time for those who were unable to attend.
Moderated by Craig M. Coopersmith, MD, FACS, FCCM, this webcast will feature leading sepsis experts who will discuss the recently published The Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3) and a related response that has been provided by the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC). Preparation for this webcast may include review of the primary Sepsis-3 manuscript available from the Journal of the American Medical Association and the SSC statement responding to Sepsis-3.
Clifford S. Deutschman, MS, MD, FCCM, and Mitchell M. Levy, MD, MCCM, FCCP, will explore such topics as the rationale for the new definitions of sepsis and septic shock, the quick Sepsis-Related Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) and how this definition might apply to bedside sepsis screening.
