When seconds count: Identifying and treating sepsis

September 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

More Americans die from sepsis every year than from opioid overdoses, breast cancer and prostate cancer combined, yet many of us haven’t heard of it. Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection, which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure and death.

Sepsis is the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals and the No. 1 cost of hospitalization in the U.S. Anyone can get sepsis and EVERYONE should know more about it. Learn about the warning signs and treatment during this webinar.

Hear from Phillip Efron, MD, FACS, FCCM from UF Health Surgical Specialists during this live event. Attendees can ask questions, via the Zoom Q/A feature, during the live event.
