Sepsis In the OR - The New, the Old and the Different
Perioperative care is rapid and dynamic. The perioperative physician is modulating a patient's physiology while undergoing anesthesia and surgery. A septic patient has deranged physiology and anesthesia has to be carefully integrated so as not to cause further harm nor interfere with concurrent treatments. Updating our knowledge to the latest trends in the treatment of sepsis syndrome will allow us to formulate a safe anesthetic plan.
Sepsis syndromes span a clinical continuum. Anesthetic medications and techniques may be beneficial or harmful depending where the patient is on the continuum. The perioperative physician needs a breath of knowledge to correctly manage sepsis syndromes in the operating room
