Impact of COVID-19 on Women and Children
Mary RobinsonBy Mary RobinsonDUBLIN, Sep 16 2020 (IPS) The impacts of crises are never gender-neutral and COVID-19 is no exception.

Early diagnosis of sepsis in emergency departments, time to treatment, and association with mortality: An observational study
Conclusions Key procedures for recognizing sepsis were delayed or not completed in a substantial proportion of patients admitted to the emergency department with sepsis. Delay or non-completion of key diagnostic procedures was associated with prolonged time to treatment with antibiotics. This suggests a need for systematic improvement in the initial management of patients admitted to emergency departments with sepsis. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))
