Webcast Highlights Third Edition of SSC Guidelines

Severe sepsis and septic shock are major healthcare problems, affecting millions of people around the world each year, killing one in four (and often more), and increasing in incidence. Similar to polytrauma, acute myocardial infarction, or stroke, the speed and appropriateness of therapy administered in the initial hours after severe sepsis develops are likely to influence outcome.

During the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) webcast, What’s New in the Third Edition of the SSC Guidelines?, R. Phillip Dellinger, MD, MCCM, and Christa A. Schorr, RN, MSN, FCCM, will discuss the additions to the latest update of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines and the rationale for the changes. The webcast will be held Wednesday, May 29, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Central Time.

Register online today. Registration is complimentary for all participants. If you have any questions, please contact SCCM Customer Service at +1 847 827-6888. This event is part of SCCM’s newest webcast series, which outlines strategies for successful implementation of the SSC recommendations.
