Surviving Sepsis Campaign
The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) alongside the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) spearheaded the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) in 2002 with several aims including the development of guidelines for diagnosis, treatment and post-ICU care of sepsis and a reduction of mortality from sepsis.
The updated guidelines are now available in Intensive Care Medicine:
