Shock and Sepsis Educational Seminar

About This Event

Regardless of the setting, early clinical signs of shock can be somewhat non-specific. Nurses play a key role in the early identification, treatment, and management of patients in shock. This early recognition, along with prompt interventions and treatment, increase survival rates for our patients. This speaker will simplify the body’s physiological response to shock, and the predominant pathophysiological conditions that lead to the various types of shock. Assessment, lab tests and current treatment guidelines will also be reviewed. Additionally, with Sepsis now being the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, nurses need to know the difference between infectious and inflammatory states versus sepsis. One-half of this seminar will be spent exploring the role of WBCs and the body’s response to extreme inflammation, injury, infection, and SEPSIS. If this sounds interesting, please join us for a day of SHOCK & SEPSIS!
