Post-Sepsis Syndrome, Critical Care Nursing Quarterly
Sepsis is both common and costly. Successful implementation of guidelines in the acute care setting has decreased mortality and increased the number of sepsis survivors. However, patients returning to the community continue to experience complications related to sepsis and many are poorly prepared to manage these long-term complications. These long-term complications are collectively referred to as post-sepsis syndrome. The purpose of this review is to increase knowledge about post-sepsis syndrome and to compare post-sepsis syndrome with post-intensive care unit syndrome.
