Nurses Suspect Sepsis

Sepsis–it’s a condition that nurses know, but may not always recognize quickly enough to ensure early intervention. It is known that providing rapid care to patients with sepsis with immediate antibiotics and fluids as part of an organized approach has the potential to save thousands of lives a year. Suspicion and immediate treatment of sepsis is essential to reducing mortality and morbidity of a disease that kills more people than breast, lung and prostate cancer combined. Data suggest that by providing rapid care to patients with sepsis with immediate antibiotics and fluids as part of an organized approach to care has the potential to save thousands of lives a year. Join the Sepsis Alliance for their new webinar series, Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care, targeting healthcare professionals. The first webinar, “Nurses Suspect Sepsis,” is coming up on Sept. 7th at 2 p.m. ET. It will cover: Sepsis definition and symptoms, risks as sepsis progresses, early warning signs of sepsis, and interventions and therapies to treat it.
