4 SIRS (Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome) – A clinical response to a nonspecific insult of either infectious or noninfectious origin. Emedicine.medscape.com Sepsis – SIRS in the presence of infection (Lilly) – Process of malignant intravascular inflammation. Exaggerated response of the immune system, exhibited by widespread inflammation – Causes endothelial damage; can progress to multiple organ system dysfunction UpToDate SIRS & Sepsis

5  Sepsis strikes 1,000,000 people each year in U.S.  28-50% of these people die (~200,000)  Far more than the number of U.S. deaths from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined  ~1400 deaths per day in the world Surviving Sepsis Campaign Statistics

6  Failure of Immune Cascade (widespread inflammation)  Clotting Cascade: Abnormal Coagulation  Hypoxia (lack of O2)  Hypoperfusion (decreased blood flow to organs)  Endothelial Damage (vascular damage/collapse— shock)  Lactate buildup Sepsis: What goes wrong?

7  Temperature: > 100.4°F or < 96.8°F  Heart Rate > 90  Resp. Rate > 20 (or PaCO2 <32)  WBC > or = 12,000 or < 4000  (Bandemia: > or = 10% Bands)  (Bands: Immature Neutrophils) SIRS Criteria

8  Procalcitonin (PCT)  CRP  Interleukin-6 (IL-6)  Lactate There are no true biomarkers for sepsis. Some research suggests PCT has > sensitivity/specificity. Otterman, M (Medscape) 2013 Bio-Markers for Sepsis??

9  Mild  Lactate < 2mMol/L  Moderate  Lactate > 2mMol/L or organ dysfunction  Severe  Lactate >4mMol/L  Admit to Critical Care Unit Mild, Moderate, Severe Sepsis

10 Sepsis Team Progression  2009  Expectations set to reduce Sepsis mortality (higher than expected)  2010  Combined Pneumonia & Sepsis teams 2011  set as Organizational strategic goal to reduce Sepsis mortality rate  Sepsis Team formed  2012  Identified Opportunities for early goal directed care education  2013  Prioritized utilization of Sepsis orders  2014  Implemented Antibiotic Stewardship (72 hour reviews)

11 Slide 1 Our Team Mission  Provide Best Care  High quality  Disease focused  Evidence-based  Partnership  Patients/Families  Community  Physicians  Improve Sepsis Outcomes  Decrease LOS  Decrease Mortality
