Failure to recognise patients with sepsis in the Emergency Department

Friday, 25 May, 2012 - 11:00
Board 2

Patients with (severe) sepsis and septic shock have a high mortality-rate varying from 22% to 75%. In order to treat sepsis adequaltely, it is necessary that sepsis is recognized as early as possible. We hypothesized that in the emergency department (ED) of our hospital many patients with sepsis are not recognized as such.
