Fluid resuscitation in pre-hospital management of septic shock

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.
