~1 in 3 patients who die in the hospital have sepsis1
#1 inpatient cost in US hospitals, totaling >$27 billion/year2
Leading cause of US in-hospital mortality, up to 70% in patients with septic shock3,4
An updated, evidence-based bundle from the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC), released in 2018, emphasizes expediency of care to improve survival.
2018 SSC Hour-1 Bundle
|Measure lactate level. Re-measure if initial lactate is >2 mmol/L|
|Obtain blood cultures prior to administration of antibiotics|
|Administer broad-spectrum antibiotics|
|Rapidly administer 30 ml/kg crystalloid for hypotension or lactate ≥4 mmol/L|
|Apply vasopressors if patient is hypotensive during or after fluid resuscitation to maintain MAP ≥65 mm Hg|
When every minute counts, i-STAT CG4+ improves care team efficiency, coordination, and communication – quickly guiding resources to those who need it most.
