Abstract

Despite breakthroughs in prevention and treatment, sepsis remains one of the leading causes of child death globally. The inability to recognize the change from a local infectious inflammatory condition to a generalized one causes a delay in diagnosis and treatment beginning. Meanwhile, the sooner therapy begins, the better the patients prospects of survival. The goal of this study is to go over current recommendations for diagnosing sepsis and septic shock in children. This article discusses the current definitions, epidemiology, and strategies for detecting pediatric sepsis early.
