Surviving Sepsis Campaign

The Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) is a partnership of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine and the Society of Critical Care Medicine formed following a 2002 international survey to investigate physicians' views on sepsis -- in particular, their satisfaction with current definitions, routes to diagnosis and treatment options.

he Campaign is committed to increasing the number of hospitals contributing data to 10,000 worldwide, to applying the guidelines to 100% of patients in whom the diagnosis is suspected, and to developing a strategy to improve the care of septic patients in under-resourced areas.
