The Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3).
TLDR
The task force concluded the term severe sepsis was redundant and 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 sepsi or at risk of developing sepsic shock.
Assessment of Clinical Criteria for Sepsis: For the Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3).
TLDR
To evaluate the validity of clinical criteria to identify patients with suspected infection who are at risk of sepsis, a new model derived using multivariable logistic regression in a split sample was derived.
Developing a New Definition and Assessing New Clinical Criteria for Septic Shock: For the Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3).
TLDR
A consensus process using results from a systematic review, surveys, and cohort studies found that adult patients with septic shock can be identified using the clinical criteria of hypotension requiring vasopressor therapy to maintain mean BP 65 mm Hg or greater and having a serum lactate level greater than 2 mmol/L after adequate fluid resuscitation.

Guidelines for the use of an insulin infusion for the management of hyperglycemia in critically ill patients
TLDR
The article suggests that the insulin regimen and monitoring system be designed to avoid and detect hypoglycemia and to minimize glycemic variability, and recommends a suggested glycemic control end point such that a blood glucose ≥150 mg/dL triggers interventions to maintain blood glucose below that level and absolutely <180mg/dL.
