Sepsis and Septic Shock

The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine, the Society of Critical Care Medicine and a task force of 19 critical care, infectious disease, surgical, and pulmonary specialists have published the Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3).

EUSEM contributed to the consultation prior to publication.

These updated definitions and clinical criteria should replace previous definitions, offer greater consistency for epidemiologic studies and clinical trials, and facilitate earlier recognition and more timely management of patients with sepsis or at risk of developing sepsis.

The full definitions are published in a free article in the Journal of the American Medical Association
