Objective:To provide an update to the original Surviving Sepsis Campaign clinical management guidelines, “Surviving Sepsis Campaign Guidelines for Management of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock,” published in 2004. Design:Modified Delphi method with a consensus conference of 55 international experts, several subsequent meetings of subgroups and key individuals, teleconferences, and electronic-based discussion among subgroups and among the entire committee. This process was conducted independently… 

Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International guidelines for management of severe sepsis and septic shock: 2008

The Grades of Recommendation, Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) system was used to guide assessment of quality of evidence from high to very low and to determine the strength of recommendations.

Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International Guidelines for Management of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock, 2012

An update to the “Surviving Sepsis Campaign Guidelines for Management of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock,” last published in 2008, is provided.

Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: 2016

Although a significant number of aspects of care have relatively weak support, evidence-based recommendations regarding the acute management of sepsis and septic shock are the foundation of improved outcomes for these critically ill patients with high mortality.

Although a significant number of aspects of care have relatively weak support, evidence-based recommendations regarding the acute management of sepsis and septic shock are the foundation of improved outcomes for these critically ill patients with high mortality.

Nursing considerations to complement the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines

A series of recommendations based on the best available evidence to guide clinicians providing nursing care to patients with severe sepsis are provided, with an urgent need for further evidence to better inform this area of critical care.

The Surviving Sepsis Campaign: results of an international guideline-based performance improvement program targeting severe sepsis

The Surviving Sepsis Campaign was associated with sustained, continuous quality improvement in sepsis care and a reduction in reported hospital mortality rates wasassociated with participation.

Comment on “Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International guidelines for management of severe sepsis and septic shock: 2008” by Dellinger et al.

The authors of the SSC guidelines are proposed to use the available literature instead of their bias, and the strong recommendation in favor of the use of stress ulcer prophylaxis is not in line with currently available evidence.

Surviving sepsis: a guide to the guidelines

The revised Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines provide a template approach to the early resuscitation and support of patients with sepsis, based on a synthesis of evidence that has been shown to improve the outcome of the septic patient.

Feasibility of Modified Surviving Sepsis Campaign Guidelines in a Resource-Restricted Setting Based on a Cohort Study of Severe S. Aureus Sepsis

It is feasible to implement modified sepsis guidelines that are scaled to resource availability, and that could save lives prior to the publication of international guidelines for developing countries, according to the feasibility and basis for modified guidelines in a resource-restricted setting.

Treatment Guidelines of Sepsis and Septic Shock

The “Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines for management of severe sepsis and septic shock: 2008”, using a new evidence-based methodology system for assessing the quality of evidence and the strength of the recommendations, was updated.

Evidence-based recommendations can be made regarding many aspects of the acute management of sepsis and septic shock that are hoped to translate into improved outcomes for the critically ill patient.

Practice parameters for hemodynamic support of sepsis in adult patients: 2004 update

An organized approach to the hemodynamic support of sepsis was formulated, and specific recommendations for fluid resuscitation, vasopressor therapy, and inotropic therapy of septic in adult patients were promulgated.

Implementation of a bundle of quality indicators for the early management of severe sepsis and septic shock is associated with decreased mortality*

Implementation of a severe sepsis bundle using a quality improvement feedback to modify physician behavior in the emergency department setting was feasible and was associated with decreased in-hospital mortality.

Economic implications of an evidence-based sepsis protocol: Can we improve outcomes and lower costs?*

The financial impact of a sepsis protocol designed for use in the emergency department can result not only in improved mortality but also in substantial savings for institutions and third party payers.

Cardiovascular management of septic shock.

This review will cover septic shock as a manifestation of severe sepsis, the collision of the body’s defenses with the invading organism, and based on current understanding of the pathophysiology, this seems to be particularly appropriate terminology.

Clinical implementation of a comprehensive sepsis treatment protocol is feasible and is associated with changes in therapies such as time to antibiotics, intravenous fluid delivery, and vasopressor use in the first 6 hrs.

Broad definitions of sepsis and the systemic inflammatory response syndrome were proposed, along with detailed physiologic parameters by which a patient may be categorized, and the use of severity scoring methods when dealing with septic patients was recommended as an adjunctive tool to assess mortality.

Epidemiology of severe sepsis in the United States: Analysis of incidence, outcome, and associated costs of care

Severe sepsis is a common, expensive, and frequently fatal condition, with as many deaths annually as those from acute myocardial infarction, and is especially common in the elderly and is likely to increase substantially as the U.S. population ages.
