Sepsis at Södersjukhuset-Adherence to Treatment Guidelines

2019-08-19 19:46:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A retrospective single-center study with patients with suspected sepsis admitted to the Emergency Department at Södersjukhuset during a period of two years. The aim is to describe the association between adherence to treatment guidelines, gender, incidence and mortality for patients with sepsis.

Description

In this single-center study, patients with suspected sepsis admitted to the Emergency Department at Södersjukhuset during a period of two years will be included. About 11,000 patients will be included. Patient data including described sepsis symptoms will be drawn from the electronic medical record, TakeCare and Clinisoft. Logistic regression analysis will adjust for age, gender, comorbidity according to Charlson score, vital signs, with preliminary focus of infection (pneumonia, urinary tract infection, abdominal, other, unknown). The Surviving Sepsis guidelines for the time period are: 3-hour bundle including lactate measurement, obtaining blood culture, fluid treatment if hypotensive and administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics. The 6-hour bundles with administration of vasopressors if needed, remeasure lactate if elevated, with persistent hypotension re-asses volume status and tissue perfusion. Time zero is defined as the admission time to the emergency department. The aim is to describe the association between adherence to treatment guidelines, gender, incidence and mortality for patients with sepsis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
