Product Overview

Severe sepsis and septic shock have a high mortality rate in children. Studies show that early recognition and aggressive, goal-directed treatment can save lives and decrease morbidity—but implementing guidelines has proved challenging for many hospitals. The Pediatric Sepsis Application helps hospitals monitor, analyze, and improve their ability to provide this best-practice care to their pediatric patients. In-Development
