In 2019, cancer claimed 9.6 million deaths worldwide - and Sepsis killed 11 million people. Sepsis remains the #1 cause of death in the world, with higher mortality than cancer and heart disease combined. Yet healthcare providers remain perplexed by the correct definition of SIRS, Sepsis, and Septic Shock, which leads to late and sometimes inappropriate management of these sickest patients. 

Learning Objectives 

  1. Recognize and differentiate SIRS v. Sepsis v. Septic Shock 
  2. Describe Appropriate Management of Sepsis Utilizing Source Control, Antibiotic Therapy, & De-escalation 
  3. Describe Appropriate Management of Septic Shock Utilizing Fluids, Pressors, & Adjunct Therapies
