It’s NOT Always Sepsis: A common sense approach for ALS and BLS EMS providers
Sepsis is an emergent medical condition that kills more people annually than prostate cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS combined. For every two heart attack patients cared for by EMS, five patients are hospitalized by sepsis. EMS transports 60% of patients with severe sepsis arriving at the ED and yet EMS providers are unaware of its presence or what they should do if the find it. This presentation discusses new sepsis criteria along with expert commentary as to how they can be applied in the field. This program includes real-world, practical methods for EMS identification, assessment and field treatment of life-threatening sepsis and looks at the current state of sepsis critical care as well as what we can anticipate in the coming months and years.
