Sepsis Standard Work: Improving Compliance with Early Recognition and Management of Perinatal Sepsis WD2720

Date: May 17, 2017

YouTube Video Link: Sepsis Standard Work: Improving Compliance with Early Recognition and Management of Perinatal Sepsis [1:04].

Description: Sepsis is a complex disorder that is difficult to diagnose and treat. If sepsis goes unrecognized or untreated, it can lead to severe sepsis or septic shock. Though septic shock is rare in pregnancy, sepsis remains an important contributor to the maternal mortality. There is a need for protocols for early recognition and management of maternal sepsis because the onset from systemic inflammatory response (SIRS) to severe sepsis occurs very rapidly. It is important to use the sepsis bundles with pregnant women who present with signs of systemic inflammatory response secondary to infection. The barriers and resistance of implementation of sepsis bundles must be addressed for our vulnerable pregnant population.
