Abstract

Despite medical advances, sepsis remains a leading cause of death. Early recognition and management of sepsis are critical to improving outcomes, including patient morbidity and mortality. All clinicians will see patients with sepsis, or sepsis survivors, thus requiring a broad understanding of sepsis. This chapter provides a succinct review of sepsis epidemiology, pathophysiology, definitions, recognition, management, and outcomes.
