"2016 International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock"

current
Published: None ; 2017 ; : -

Abstract

The importance of guidelines for identifying and treating sepsis and septic shock cannot be understated and IDSA recognizes the enormous positive impact the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Surviving Sepsis Campaign has had on its prevention and treatment.

However, IDSA ultimately withdrew its endorsement of the 2016 guideline based on an inability to reach a timely agreement regarding specific antibiotic recommendations including stewardship, not the overall value of the guideline itself. IDSA collaborates with SCCM on several clinical practice guidelines and greatly values these opportunities. We hope that we will have an opportunity to participate in the development of the next update of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guideline and in promoting appropriate handling of this dangerous consequence of infectious diseases.
