SESSION TITLE: Sepsis II
SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster
PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM
PURPOSE: To assess if ED eICU cart activation improves compliance with “sepsis bundles” and impacts length of stay (LOS), disposition and costs.
METHODS: An IRB-approved retrospective cohort study was completed on sepsis patients who presented to the ED from July 2010-August 2013. Data (eICU cart activation, timing of blood cultures, lactic acid level, antibiotic and fluid administration) was analyzed via chi-square tests, independent samples t-tests and Wilcoxon rank sum tests.
