An eclectic collection of resources for World Sepsis Day 2017

It’s World Sepsis Day 2017! In support of this, I’ve pulled together a few resources that I have found helpful. Starting with a very general overview of sepsis, which I quite like (apart from ‘the bloodstream carrying death around the body’, which is a metonomical step too far for me)!

And so, to the resources:

Once again, Fingertips provides a useful resource, giving us a national picture of antibiotics reviewed within 72 hours from the CQUIN programme for 2016/17 (see Figure below). I believe more sepsis-related indicators will be forthcoming on Fingertips soon.

As you can see, the trend is improving. As with all areas of sepsis, I think we are making progress, but there is much more to do!
