About This Event
Between one-third and one-half of sepsis patients, arrive at the emergency department via emergency medical services (EMS). Sepsis recognition and treatment of those patients in the pre-hospital setting may directly affect care in the emergency department and overall patient outcomes.
Providers share how pediatric patients can be integrated into pre-hospital care for sepsis through the development of a sepsis protocol and pre-hospital screening tool.
Learn how EMS strategies to target sepsis recognition, can aid the health care team in improving the timeliness of care and be an effective approach to identifying and rapidly treating the early stages of sepsis.
