SESSION TITLE: Sepsis Diagnosis and Resuscitation

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

PURPOSE: The Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (SEPSIS-3) Task Force recently introduced a new clinical score termed quick Sequential [Sepsis-related] Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) for identification of patients at risk for sepsis outside of the intensive care unit (ICU). Introduction of the score was based on a large retrospective study which found that, among encounters with suspected infection outside of the ICU, the predictive validity for in-hospital mortality of qSOFA was greater than systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). The Task Force encouraged validation of the new qSOFA score in other cohorts. Thus, we attempted to examine the robustness of qSOFA score in our healthcare setting.
