Description

What makes sepsis so dangerous? How can we detect sepsis early and save lives? Why are hospitalised patients more likely to die from sepsis?
Sepsis is a leading cause of preventable death, the incidence of which has increased markedly in the past 40 years. While mortality rates are improving, up to one-fifth of patients with severe sepsis die. Early identification and intervention are key to survival—delayed care for inpatients who develop sepsis is the main reason why this group has a higher mortality rate than people with sepsis admitted from the community. Internationally, the Surviving Sepsis Campaign promotes screening of “every patient, every shift, every day” for sepsis, and United Kingdom guidelines recommend that health care practitioners ask, “Could this be sepsis?” for any patient presenting signs of a possible infection.
Nurses are best placed to identify sepsis early and ensure timely implementation of treatment protocols. A thorough understanding of the events underlying development of sepsis and the associated risks, will help nurses in this life-saving role. The goal is that all nurses in all clinical settings consider, as a first priority, the possibility
