Risk factors at index hospitalisation associated with longer term mortality in adult sepsis survivors
Clinician researcher and intensivist at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital, London, and first author of the Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock Criteria, Manu Shankhar-Hari, discusses this recently-published cohort study which investigates the generic and sepsis-specific patient characteristics that are associated with long-term mortality in patients who survive hospitalisation for sepsis.
This latest paper sheds light on the predictors of long-term outcomes in adult survivors of sepsis and assesses the factors that are independently associated with long-term mortality.
