Nursing the septic patient

ECC | 89 mins

Recognising and reacting to the early signs and symptoms of sepsis can increase the rates of survival to discharge. Emphasis on early staging and quick initiation of treatment has become heavily emphasised with each sepsis guideline released. Intensive care for these patients is key to these patients’ recovery, meaning the veterinary nurse/technician is often at the forefront of care. This webinar will discuss the mechanisms of sepsis and address in depth the treatment and its importance to survival rates, including nursing considerations and tips for these high intensity long term patients.
