ESICM Academy: browse the Sepsis eModules
Academy eModules are electronic books grouped in categories. They contain updated, peer-reviewed, evidence-based training material. ESICM Academy is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
If you are an ESICM member, you can access for free all the courses available on the Academy.
Each month we will highlight all the available courses related to a specific theme. With the upcoming webinar on the updated Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) guidelines, this month, we highlight all eModules related to Sepsis and curated by the SIS (Systemic Inflammation and Sepsis) Section.
Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. Conservative estimates suggest that it can affect over 30 million people each year, with mortality rates ranging from 10-50%. Those who survive often suffer long-term physical, psychological and cognitive disabilities. Despite this, it is largely unknown to the lay public and until recent years, not recognised for the worldwide threat that it is.
Below you can find an overview of the available Sepsis eModules:
Sepsis and Septic Shock Part I-IV
- Introduction, definitions and recognition of sepsis
- Resuscitation and hemodynamic support of the patient with sepsis
- Identification and source control in sepsis
