Sepsis – it’s a condition that nurses know, but may not always recognize quickly enough to ensure early intervention. It is known that providing rapid care to patients with sepsis with immediate antibiotics and fluids as part of an organized approach has the potential to save thousands of lives a year.
This webinar will cover:
- Sepsis definition and symptoms
- Risks as sepsis progresses
- Early warning signs of sepsis
- Interventions and therapies to treat it.
