Managing Sepsis in the Emergency Department
About This Webinar
Sepsis is the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals. With two-thirds of septic patients now entering the health system through the emergency department, the ED is increasingly shouldering a bigger responsibility in early sepsis identification and initiation of care. In addition, while it is clear that timing matters and saves lives through prompt evaluation and treatment, SCCM, ACEP, and other leading associations are reviewing the most recent recommended SSC Hour-1 Bundle that have significant implications to clinical teams across the U.S.
Hear experts from the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) discuss evaluation and treatment guidelines, as well as other important topics in this inaugural ENA and Relias joint webinar.
