Abstract

Sepsis can affect anyone including the immunocompromised and those at both ends of the age spectrum. The implications for nursing care with an understanding of sepsis is paramount in providing optimal patient outcomes and reducing mortality. Advanced practice nurses should be familiar with the signs and symptoms of sepsis throughout its continuum and possess an understanding of its underlying pathophysiology. In the realm of anesthesia, the ability of the nurse anesthetist to recognize and competently manage the septic patient is imperative in promoting the best possible patient outcomes.
