Pediatric sepsis is the leading cause of death in children and infants worldwide. Common infections can quickly lead to sepsis including infections passed from mother in-utero and during childbirth.
The Surviving Sepsis Campaign has commissioned the world's leading pediatric sepsis experts from across countries and practice disciplines to develop guidelines and associated implementation materials for clinicians who care for this population.
Pediatric sepsis guidelines will be released in 2019. Guidelines for low- and middle-resource nations will be included.
