Overview

The incidence of sepsis is increasing as new medical and surgical technologies are applied to an increasingly aging patient population. The treatment of sepsis emphasizes strategies to avoid multiple organ dysfunction, with particular attention to establishing source control, and then modifies the host's response to the excessive inflammatory response which characterizes sepsis. This book is a comprehensive review by internationally recognized experts of the epidemiology, monitoring and treatment of sepsis. Using an "evidence-based" approach, it comprises an extensive review of the literature on sepsis, provides up-to-date recommendations for monitoring and treating sepsis patients, and concludes with explicit recommendations for the design and monitoring of future clinical trials.
