Sepsis is a life-threatening complication of an infectious process that, without rapid diagnosis and treatment, can quickly progress to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. Each year, 270,000 Americans die from sepsis. Alarmingly, mortality increases 8 percent with each hour an individual does not receive treatment for sepsis. Because nearly 80% of sepsis cases begin in the community, awareness of the signs and symptoms of sepsis is critical knowledge for community members, EMS professionals and volunteers, and emergency department staff. This presentation will share interventions to increase the early detection, recognition, and treatment of sepsis.
