The outcome of septic patients relies on the early identification and rapid implementation of appropriate treatments, including hemodynamic optimization and antibiotics administration” Jouffroy et al (2018).

Abstract:

The estimated incidence of sepsis is approximately 300 per 100,000 inhabitants [1,2], making sepsis a major public health problem, with a mortality rate reaching 30% at day 28 (D28) [1,3-5]. The outcome of septic patients relies on the early identification and rapid implementation of appropriate treatments, including hemodynamic optimization and antibiotics administration [3,6]. Hemodynamic failure is frequently encountered in most severe forms of sepsis and often has to be initially managed in a pre-hospital setting.
