An American College of Chest Physicians/Society of Critical Care Medicine Consensus Conference was held in Northbrook in August 1991 with the goal of agreeing on a set of definitions that could be applied to patients with sepsis and its sequelae. New definitions were offered for some terms, while others were discarded. Broad definitions of sepsis and the systemic inflammatory response syndrome were proposed, along with detailed physiologic parameters by which a patient may be categorized… Expand
Comparative effectiveness of physician diagnosis and guideline definitions in identifying sepsis patients in the emergency department.
TLDR
Efforts are needed to increase the application of sepsis guideline definitions to better identify ED patients with this potentially deadly condition and raise concern that early treatments for these high-risk patients may be delayed due to inaccurate clinical diagnosis. Expand
Consensus conference definitions for sepsis, septic shock, acute lung injury, and acute respiratory distress syndrome: Time for a reevaluation
TLDR
An important challenge is to progress from clinical syndromes to more specific entities that are delineated by alterations in specific immunologic or biochemical pathways, which will provide more homogeneous groups of patients who can be identified at early stages of their clinical course. Expand
Pediatric definitions for sepsis: it's about time!
  • M. Parker
  • Medicine
  • Pediatric critical care medicine : a journal of the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies
  • 2005
TLDR
The International Pediatric Sepsis Conference definitions for sepsis and organ failure in children are reported, and this international group is to be congratulated for providing much-needed standardization of definitions forSepsis. Expand
Organ dysfunction as a new standard for defining sepsis
TLDR
The pathophysiology of sepsis and organ dysfunction is summarized and potential directions for future research are discussed and a drastic change in clinical definition is assumed. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: An Evidence-Based Review
TLDR
The Sequential (Sepsis-related) Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) criteria and “quick” (q)SOFA criteria should be used to identify sepsis, in place of the currently used systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) criteria, which were the basis for the previous definition of sepsi. Expand
Changing Definitions of Sepsis.
TLDR
The diagnosis and definition of sepsis is a critical problem due to the heterogeneity of this disease process, and recently updated the consensus definitions improved specificity compared with the previous descriptions. Expand

In Reply. —The American College of Chest Physicians/Society of Critical Care Medicine held their consensus conference on the issue of definitions in sepsis in order to develop a terminology stressingExpand

The septic syndrome. Definition and clinical implications.
TLDR
The septic syndrome may help identify a population of patients at risk for the various complications of sepsis (that is, ARDS), aid in the search for pathophysiologic mechanisms, and allow for pharmacological trials earlier in the disease process. Expand
Evaluation of definitions of sepsis.
TLDR
Sepsis is a complex clinical entity and could be viewed as a continuum with substantial variation in initial severity and risk of hospital death and one accurate description of sepsis is the continuous measure of hospital mortality risk estimated primarily from physiologic abnormalities. Expand
Impact of encephalopathy on mortality in the sepsis syndrome. The Veterans Administration Systemic Sepsis Cooperative Study Group.
TLDR
Multivariate analysis disclosed that altered mental status, hypothermia, hypotension, thrombocytopenia, and the absence of shaking chills were independent predictors of increased mortality in the sepsis syndrome. Expand
The influence of sepsis and multisystem and organ failure on mortality in the surgical intensive care unit.
TLDR
When the septic and nonseptic patients were compared, certain factors were identified that may have influenced the development of sepsis in these patients, including poor nutritional status, diabetes mellitus, use of steroids, previous splenectomy, and an average total lymphocyte count below 700. Expand
Sepsis syndrome: a valid clinical entity
TLDR
The sepsis syndrome represents a systemic response to infection and is defined as hypothermia or hyperthermia, tachycardia, tachypnea, clinical evidence of an infection site and with at least one end-organ demonstrating inadequate perfusion or dysfunction expressed as poor or altered cerebral function. Expand
Multiple organ failure.
TLDR
Scientific, social, moral, ethical and legal factors emphasize the need to establish a statistically valid large data base concerning this new man-made syndrome which has both important scientific and social implications and this study is a first step in this direction. Expand
Sepsis syndrome, the adult respiratory distress syndrome, and nosocomial pneumonia. A common clinical sequence.
TLDR
Clinical features, more than serum markers, have been the best predictors of whether lung injury will follow sepsis, indicating that the mere presence of mediators alone cannot cause ARDS and that there are individual susceptibility factors in the effects of these mediators. Expand
Multiple organ system failure and infection in adult respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
Vigorous evaluation and treatment of infection in patients with the adult respiratory distress syndrome may improve survival and be more common in infected patients than noninfected patients. Expand
Septic shock in humans. Advances in the understanding of pathogenesis, cardiovascular dysfunction, and therapy.
TLDR
With a canine model of septic shock that is very similar to human sepsis, myocardial depression was confirmed using load-independent measures of ventricular performance and Pharmacologic or immunologic antagonism of endotoxin or other mediators may prove to enhance survival in this highly lethal syndrome. Expand
Microbial infection and the septic response in critical surgical illness. Sepsis, not infection, determines outcome.
TLDR
The differential roles of infection as a microbial phenomenon and sepsis as a host response were studied in 210 critically ill surgical patients, finding the magnitude of the host septic response is an important determinant of outcome in critical surgical illness. Expand
