Sepsis

Every patient can become septic. Stroke patients even more so. We review the german guidelines and talk about the importance of the basic steps:

  1. Identify and remove focus
  2. Big line (grey needle)
  3. Volume bolus 500-1000 cc
  4. Obtain 2-3 sets of blood cultures
  5. Start antibiotic (hit early, hit hard)

Next think about getting a PCT.
