Part I of Dr. Rivers’ talk on Severe Sepsis
Dr. Emanuel Rivers brought the concept of aggressive therapies for sepsis down to the Emergency Department with his seminal article on EGDT published in the NEJM in 2001. We were lucky enough to get an hour of his time to do a conference call with the NYC STOP Sepsis collaborative.
I broke the ~1 hour lecture into 3 parts. In Part I, Dr. Rivers discusses:
- Prehospital Antibiotics
- Comparison between the original EGDT Study and the Jones study (showing the non-inferiority of the non-invasive approach).
- Alactemic Septic Shock
