SSC UPDATE: New Evidence

SSC UPDATE: New Evidence

NEW ICM ARTICLE ONLINE NOW

A new ONLINE FIRST article in Intensive Care Medicine provides in-depth information about progress of the ongoing campaign to lower mortality rates and improve outcomes in sepsis. 

In "Surviving Sepsis Campaign: association between performance metrics and outcomes in a 7.5-year study" (October 2014), Levy et al., highlight the following key messages: 

  • data demonstrates that adherence to the SSC's guidelines continuously results in reducing mortality rates in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock, and 
  • recent evidence, in conjunction with data collected over the last 7.5 years of the campaign both serve as confirmation that in real life situations, compliance to a process is more important than focus on individual strategies.
