The septic patient
Sepsis – a severe systemic inflammatory response to infection – is a frustrating life-threatening condition. Recognizing early signs of sepsis, understanding how to monitor a septic patient and finally knowing what treatment to provide is paramount to increase the likelihood of survival. What is an essential treatment? What else can you do for these patients?
A septic patient requires intensive round the clock treatment.
During this session you will learn how to approach the septic patient and what the latest treatment guidelines are.
- Sepsis – definition and signs
- Initial nursing of the septic patient
- Stabilisation and fluid therapy
- Which fluids? Which drugs? And how much?
- What to do if you cannot get that blood pressure up? Which drugs are available and how to administer them?
- Supportive treatment
