Multisystem-Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) is an emerging syndrome with potentially severe manifestations. Presentation can mimic sepsis, posing a challenge for clinicians. Speakers have taken a deep dive into emerging MIS-C literature and published this work in Critical Care Nurse and the American Journal of Nursing. Join us to review latest guidance on recognition, diagnostics, and treatment of MIS-C vs. sepsis.
- Describe the differences in pathophysiology of MIS-C vs. sepsis
- Identify overlapping and distinguishing signs and symptoms of MIS-C and sepsis
- Analyze current evidence to support management strategies for MIS-C
