Identifying Sepsis in the Prehospital Setting

Identifying Sepsis in the Prehospital Setting

Severe infection and sepsis are high mortality illnesses that significantly burden the healthcare system. Evidence suggests that early identification and aggressive treatment reduces mortality and length of hospital stay for these patients. Emergency rooms and hospitals have utilized protocols to help identify this patient cohort, but emergency medical services (EMS) has lagged behind, despite the fact that many of these patients are initially treated and transported by EMS. Recently, several prehospital screening tools for identifying sepsis have been created and evaluated. Using this approach, emergency medical technicians may be able to provide pre-arrival notification, initiate treatment, and create systems of care for septic patients. This webinar will review the evidence for prehospital engagement with septic patients and discuss the existing screening tools for EMS personnel.
