Sepsis Guidelines and Protocols: Providing Care to Patients

Throughout my experience in health care over the past 30 plus years, the diagnosis of sepsis has been one of the most challenging. Sepsis affects millions of people worldwide and one in four of the people affected will die. The way we recognize and treat sepsis has changed over the years, and in January 2017, the International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: 2016 was published. This update to the 2012 guidelines, emphasizes that patients with sepsis should be viewed as having a medical emergency, necessitating urgent assessment and treatment. The articles in this collection focus on sepsis identification and goal-directed treatment according to current guidelines and definitions. I encourage you to use this collection of articles to improve the way you provide care to patients with sepsis.
