OBSTRETICS Grand Rounds: Sepsis in Pregnancy

April 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Presented by:  Leah Dahlfred, MD

Leah Dahlfred, MD
Obstetrics Fellow, Natividad Medical Center

Sepsis is your body’s inflammatory reaction to an infection. It is responsible for 15% of all maternal deaths worldwide, and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists “infection or sepsis” as being responsible for 12.7% of pregnancy-related deaths in the U.S. This is the third most common cause, following heart disease (15.5%) and non-cardiovascular disease (14.5%).

Desired Outcomes:

  • Earlier recognition of sepsis in pregnancy
  • Earlier and appropriate intervention in septic pregnant patients
  • Population-directed diagnosis of sepsis in pregnancy
