Prehospital hemodynamic improvement in patients treated for suspected sepsis
"Sepsis is a medical condition associated with high morbidity and mortality if not recognized and treated quickly. Over one-third of patients treated for sepsis in the emergency department are brought in by EMS. Studies have shown early recognition and treatment of septic patients shortens time to initiation of intravenous fluids and antibiotics. While this is encouraging, survey data shows aramedic knowledge and awareness of sepsis is widely variable. Due to this variation in knowledge, prehospital sepsis may be missed if there is not a robust prehospital sepsis protocol in place."--Introduction.
