We focus on the early diagnosis and management of sepsis through protocolized mechanisms in acute care settings. I have nothing against standardizing care for severe conditions. However, sepsis is a greater problem than just timely diagnosis and management.
In this editorial a more comprehensive view of sepsis is considered, this includes a focus on surveillance, antimicrobial stewardship, pathogens (vaccines), health behaviors (smoking), management of chronic conditions (preferable prior to hospitalization), demographics, microbiome, infection prevention and minimizing invasive devices.
Comprehensive and concise. Thank you!
Instead of stopping the leaks in the dam, build a better dam.
