Rapidly Identify Pediatric Sepsis

Because sepsis begins outside of a hospital in 80% of cases, first responders and pre-hospital caregivers are critical to urgent recognition and treatment of sepsis. They are often the first healthcare professionals to encounter the patient and are vital to communication during transfers of care.
