SIRS and sepsis - what's the difference?
Septic shock is one of the most challenging conditions we face, in which patient morbidity and mortality is high. But how can we improve management and outcome in these patients? How much fluids do we need to give? What antibiotics are the best? What is the best vasopressor and when to use this? This lecture will cover the new surviving sepsis human guidelines, and how to apply these guidelines to our critically ill veterinary patients to improve patient outcome.
