Sepsis is life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. A septic patient presents alterations of a variety of systems. Therefore, early identification and appropriate management in the initial hours after developing sepsis are of utmost importance. But what are the essential points and steps to follow when facing a septic patient?
This webinar, organised by the ESICM Infections and Systemic Inflammation and Sepsis Sections, will answer this question.
- Discuss the new antibiotics available;
- Learn when and how to use AMR phenotyping to find the appropriate antibiotic therapy;
- Identify relevant variables to predict the patient trajectory in order to assess response to interventions in a patient with septic shock and redirect the strategy in case of failure.
