NICE guidelines (2016)
Understanding the physiology of what occurs when sepsis starts is essential in starting to understand the signs and symptoms that the person will present with.
Before we explore the case study though, how well do you know the NICE guidelines?
The NICE sepsis bundle guidelines (2016) were produced in response to the difficulties in recognising and treating sepsis. There are a number of immediate actions that need to occur to provide your patient with the best possible treatment when a person has sepsis.
The guidelines aim to standardise the approach to recognising and then ensuring appropriate treatment utilising the best available evidence.
