PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 05:15 PM - 06:15 PM
PURPOSE: To compare outcomes in patients with an ICD9 (995.92 or 785.52) vs patients with a clinical definition of severe sepsis without a diagnosis code.
METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort of patients with severe sepsis or septic shock admitted through the emergency department (ED) between 3/1/07-10/1/14. Criteria for severe sepsis required ≥1 of the following: a) ICD9 995.92, b) increased serum lactate, or c) ≥2 organ dysfunction sites (identified by ICD9 code or laboratory values). Criteria for septic shock required ≥1 of the following: a) ICD9 785.52, b) SBP<90, and/or c) MAP<65. Patients with severe sepsis and septic shock were analyzed separately.
