SCCM Pod-406 Surviving Sepsis Campaign Children’s Guidelines

Margaret M. Parker, MD, MCCM, and Scott L. Weiss, MD, FCCM, discuss the release of "Surviving Sepsis Campaign International Guidelines for the Management of Septic Shock and Sepsis-Associated Organ Dysfunction in Children,” published in the February 2020 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (Weiss S, et al. Pediatr Crit Care Med. 2020;21(2);e52-e106). Dr. Weiss outlines the differences between the new pediatric Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) guidelines and the 2017 “American College of Critical Care Medicine Clinical Practice Parameters for Hemodynamic Support of Pediatric and Neonatal Septic Shock” (Davis AL, et al. Crit Care Med. 2017;45:1061-1093), as well as key differences from the “Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: 2016” (Rhodes A, et al. Crit Care Med. 2017;45:486-552). The challenges in implementing the pediatric guidelines in resource-limited areas and key recommendations for resuscitation of children with sepsis and septic shock are also covered. Dr. Weiss has served as the SCCM-appointed vice-chair of the SSC Guidelines Task Force. He is an attending physician at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Published: 2/7/2020
