Sepsis Recognition: Educating High-Risk Patient Populations

In partnership with Sepsis Alliance, join pediatric sepsis survivor, Dr. Hillary Spangler, as she takes us on her journey of sepsis survival and how her team assembled their first family sepsis initiative; educating over 500 families on the signs and symptoms of sepsis.


Strategies for the Early Identification of Pediatric Sepsis

Annually in the United States, 1 in every 100 hospitalized children is diagnosed with severe sepsis/septic shock and 1 in 10 will die, resulting in more than 4,500 deaths each year. Use of sensitive and specific screening tools is an effective strategy to identify and rapidly treat the early stages of sepsis, preventing progression of the disease. Supported by their participation in the Improving Pediatric Sepsis Outcomes (IPSO) collaborative, the sepsis team from Nemours Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children developed, tested, and implemented an electronic tool to increase recognition of these patients and alert providers to children at risk.
