JAMA Clinical Guidelines Synopsis
Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: 2016 is a joint collaboration between the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine and the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
The guidelines, developed by a consensus committee of 55 international experts in sepsis, offer important advancements for clinicians caring for patients with sepsis and septic shock, starting with the need to identify at-risk patients sooner.
