ACUTE REHABILITATION Grand Rounds: SEPSIS

September 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

David Epstein, MD, Chair, Stanford Health Care Vaccine Committee, Clinical Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases, Stanford University School of Medicine

Presented ByDavid Epstein, MD

Sepsis is a serious medical condition. It is caused by an overwhelming immune response to infection. The body releases immune chemicals into the blood to combat the infection. Those chemicals trigger widespread inflammation, which leads to blood clots and leaky blood vessels. As a result, blood flow is impaired, and that deprives organs of nutrients and oxygen and leads to organ damage.

 Sepsis is a major challenge in hospitals, where it’s one of the leading causes of death. It is also a main reason why people are readmitted to the hospital. Sepsis occurs unpredictably and can progress rapidly.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Recite the risks associated with sepsis.
  • Identify patients with sepsis.
  • Identify infectious etiologies of sepsis.
  • Detail strategies for administering antimicrobial drugs and other interventions.
  • Detail strategies to de-escalate antimicrobial drugs.
