Abstract

Abstract

This poster focused on Sepsis-Induced DIC, life-threatening complications causing severe coagulopathy that if not recognize and treated early, can lead to multi-organ failure, death, and morbidity. Many patients who come to the hospital for some sort of infection are already at risk for Sepsis-Induced DIC and moreover, surgeries can increase the risk of Sepsis-Induced DIC. It is now understood that the prevention of Sepsis-Induced DIC largely depends on early detection, treatment, and prevention. Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) need to be well educated on this topic to be effective providers. Five research-based articles with other supporting sources were reviewed on Sepsis-Induced DIC to exploring the topic at hand; using the Otterbein researcher database. This poster explored what Sepsis-Induced DIC is, its pathophysiology and significant, symptoms associated with it, and its implications for nursing practice. It will further explore diagnostic tests, and treatment management associated with Sepsis-Induced DIC.
