  • Pediatric Sepsis Week

    Apr 21, 2019

    This April 21st to 27th, Sepsis Alliance is launching Pediatric Sepsis Week to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of sepsis in children and recognize the 75,000 children who develop sepsis every year in the U.S. This annual observance will be held the third week of every April.

    • In the U.S., 200 children develop sepsis a day.
    • More children die of sepsis than of childhood cancer.
    • One-third of pediatric sepsis survivors show a decline in their functional status 28 days after hospital discharge.

  • Webinar: Surviving Pediatric Sepsis: What’s Next?

    Apr 24, 2019

    This webinar is part of the Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care webinar series.

    Date: Wednesday, April 24, 2019

    Time: 2 PM EST/11 AM PST

    Description:

    With early recognition and appropriate resuscitation, most children now survive sepsis.  Unfortunately, the experience of sepsis does not end at the PICU or hospital discharge for many children and their families. Functional deficits in physical, cognitive, emotional, and social health are evident in up to one-quarter (or more) of children after pediatric sepsis, along with an increased risk for hospital readmission and long-term mortality.

    This webinar will review the epidemiology and symptoms of post-intensive care syndrome in children (PICS-p) who survive sepsis and discuss efforts to improve the lingering effects of sepsis and critical illness for children and their families. Dr. Marnie Doubek will talk about her experience when her 11-year-old son, Zachary, developed sepsis and she found herself on the patient side of things.

    At the end of the presentation you should be able to:

    • Review epidemiology and symptoms of post-intensive care syndrome in childhood survivors of sepsis
    • Identify risk factors for long-term functional morbidity and mortality after pediatric sepsis
    • Discuss efforts to improve long-term new or residual morbidity after pediatric sepsis
    • Value the pediatric sepsis survivor experience from a parent’s perspective

    • Identify obstacles that abstractors face when abstracting sepsis data
