It is estimated that 1 in 3 patients who die in the hospital have sepsis. This session provides evidence-based care strategies based on current guidelines, highlighting the critical importance of proper monitoring to detect early deterioration and improving survival and outcomes through treatment approaches including when to give fluid versus when to start a vasopressor for hypotension.
