Abstract

The surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) was an initiative of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine, the International Sepsis Forum and the Society of Critical Care Medicine. It was developed with the aim of improving the diagnosis and the treatment of sepsis. Some years after the Authors reflect on what the Surviving Sepsis Campaign has taught us. First of all the SSC has shown that it is possible to raise awareness among physicians and lay persons of an important disease process. The development of sespis bundles has helped promote discussion of the optimal approach to sepsis management and has introduce some degree of uniformity to the process of treating patients with severe sepsis. It has encouraged a more standardised approach to patient management at a global level, in particular in those hospitals in which patient care is substandard.
