Reducing the risk of Sepsis
This app offers clinicians a number of validated tools to support the screening and treatment of Sepsis, including:
- Sepsis Screening tool for the prompt recognition and the timely initiation of treatment of patients with Sepsis.
- An outline of the Sepsis 6 care bundles for the treatment of Sepsis.
- An algorithm to help identify Organ Dysfunction, Severe Sepsis, Septic Shock and when to escalate care for the individual patient.
- A National Early Warning Scoring System (NEWS) calculator to alert clinicians to the deteriorating patient and acute illness.
The video with Professor Kevin Rooney provides an overview of Sepsis and the use of the Sepsis App to help recognise the signs and promptly take action to reduce mortality in Acute Care.
The Sepsis app is currently being extended to include maternal Sepsis screening and modification to adoption of the qSOFA screening score.
