Sepsis Resources

Banner Health Sepsis Early Identification Initiative: Cerner alerts have been implemented to assist with early and consistent sepsis identification. Computerized screening will occur every 24 hours.

Physicians are expected to:

1. Confirm the presence of sepsis within the problem list (or inactivate if sepsis not likely)

2. If sepsis is believed to be present, initiate the sepsis bundle, including (when appropriate):

  • STAT Lactic Acid
  • Bood cultures X2
  • BMP & CBX if not done in past 12 hours
  • ABGs & Oxygen to keep Sats > 93 %
  • Normal Saline Bolus (20 ml/kg over 60 min)
  • Transfer to ICU
