“Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care Webinar Series: Surviving Pediatric Sepsis, What’s Next?”
Sepsis Alliance* presents…”Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care Webinar Series”
With early recognition and appropriate resuscitation, most children now survive sepsis. Unfortunately, the experience of sepsis does not end at the PICU or hospital discharge for many children and their families. Functional deficits in physical, cognitive, emotional, and social health are evident in up to one-quarter (or more) of children after pediatric sepsis, along with an increased risk for hospital readmission and long-term mortality. This webinar will review the epidemiology and symptoms of post-intensive care syndrome in children (PICS-p) who survive sepsis and discuss efforts to improve the lingering effects of sepsis and critical illness for children and their families. Dr. Marnie Doubek will talk about her experience when her 11-year-old son, Zachary, developed sepsis and she found herself on the patient side of things.
