This is the screen cast of a lecture titled “Sepsis an update” given by Irfan Hafiz MD on June 21st 2013 at Centegra Woodstock Hospital.
Sepsis protocol TO BE COMPLETED WITHIN 3 HOURS: Measure lactate level Obtain blood cultures prior to administration of antibiotics Administer broad spectrum antibiotics Administer 30 ml/kg crystalloid for hypotension or lactate ≥4mmol/L TO BE COMPLETED WITHIN 6 HOURS: Apply vasopressors (for hypotension that does not respond to initial fluid resuscitation) to maintain a mean arterial pressure (MAP) ≥65 mm Hg In the event of persistent arterial hypotension despite volume resuscitation (septic shock) or initial lactate ≥4 mmol/L (36 mg/dL): Measure central venous pressure (CVP)* Measure central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2)* Remeasure lactate if initial lactate was elevated* Targets for quantitative resuscitation included in the guidelines are CVP of ≥8 mm Hg; ScvO2 of ≥70%, and normalization of lactate. Resuscitation Goals To achieve central venous pressure (CVP) of > 8 mm Hg To achieve central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) of > 70% To achieve MAP > 65mmHg and a urine output of >0.5mls/kg/hr The 24 hour SSC Management Bundle includes: Low-dose steroids administered for septic shock in accordance with a standardized ICU policy Glucose control maintained below upper limit of normal (8.3 mmol/L) with an insulin sliding scale regime (usually short-acting insulin such as Human Actrapid) Lung Protective Ventilator Strategy utilising 5–8 mls/kg tidal volumes for mechanically ventilated patients to avoid volutrauma and barotrauma.

McHenry County Dept. of Health.
Topics included in the lecture include:
Identifying current and emerging infectious disease common to long term care facilities (LTCF). Describe preventive interventions for infectious disease in the context of LTCF. Describe the unique challenges facing LTCF in the context of infectious diseases.
