Live Webinar: Sepsis & Trauma: What Frontline Providers Need to Know
December 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Date: December 7, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST / 11:00 am – 12:00 PM PST
A 2012-2016 National Inpatient Sample of Hospitalizations analysis by Dr. Afshar et al. on trends, cost, and mortality from sepsis after trauma in the United States revealed that though trends for sepsis mortality have improved over the years, this trend was not supported in the trauma population. In this session, Dr. Afshar will discuss the findings of the retrospective cohort study published in Critical Care Medicine in 2020 and what this means for frontline clinicians needing to recognize and care for sepsis in patients following trauma.
