SESSION TITLE: Critical Care: Sepsis

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

PURPOSE: To determine if specific comorbidities or number of comorbidities are associated with mortality, ICU admission rates, hospital length of stay, or hospital readmission rates.

METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of patients with severe sepsis/septic shock between 3/1/07 - 10/1/14. Additional inclusion criteria were: ≥18 years of age, admission through the Emergency Department, diagnosis of infection, antimicrobial administration, and organ dysfunction (increased lactate or ≥ 2 organ dysfunctions identified by ICD9 code or by lab values). Comorbidities were identified and queried based on those defined by the University Health System Consortium. Data were analyzed according to their specific comorbidities.
