Latest News: Updated Adult Sepsis Guidelines
Updated global adult sepsis guidelines, released in October 2021 by the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC), place an increased emphasis on improving the care of sepsis patients after they are discharged from the intensive care unit (ICU) and represent greater geographic and gender diversity than previous versions.
The updated guidelines are especially important today, as many who are seriously ill with COVID-19 are particularly vulnerable to sepsis.
The evidence-based guidelines, published in Critical Care Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine, reflect best practices and recommendations for the treatment of sepsis and septic shock in adults and are revised regularly to account for new research.
