Course Overview

Sepsis is a complex, multifactorial condition that results in high healthcare costs and significant morbidity and mortality. The definitions of sepsis, septic shock, and organ dysfunction were established in 1991 by members of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). Over the past 20 years, more research has been conducted on sepsis pathophysiology and management, and several new antibiotics have been approved. A new guideline was released in 2016 that reexamines sepsis and associated definitions and provides updated recommendations for managing patients with sepsis.
