Septic shock: From the bug to organ failure

Infection and Severe Sepsis are still important causes of death in ICU worldwide despite all the research of the last decades. Apart from early diagnosis, optimal organ support and early adequate antibiotics, no single adjunctive therapy has been shown to be safe and effective. Looking at the interaction of the pathogen, the host and the treatment could lead to a better understanding of the underlying processes and ideally to a more personalised medicine.

Pedro Povoa, Chair of the ESICM Infections Section and Director of the LIVES Forum 2021, explains why sepsis and severe infections have been chosen as the theme of this year’s Forum.

Despite all the efforts of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign and of other societies, patients with severe sepsis and septic shock can still have a mortality above 40%. The long-term outcome of those who survive can still be improved. This conference will be an opportunity to study and develop strategies, pass on knowledge and improve patient outcome and early diagnosis. The programme includes a very broad spectrum of speakers. As well as frontal lectures, there will be opportunities to “cross talk” in small groups with senior and younger clinicians and researchers of different backgrounds and experiences in an open and interactive way.
