Dear EMS1 Subscriber,
We have featured articles this month on assessing and treating sepsis. In this newsletter, we highlight sepsis assessment with a patient who presented with a vague complaint of belly pain and abnormal vital signs. Make sure to read "6 useful sepsis tips" from Art Hsieh, and to watch the "Remember 2 Things" episode on the importance of aggressive EMS treatment of sepsis.
