The Septic Patient
eCPD Tutorial with Samantha McMillan
This 40 minute eCPD tutorial will give veterinary nurses a better understanding of sepsis. Sepsis, severe sepsis and septic shock are common causes of morbidity and mortality in veterinary patients. It is important that as nurses we can recognise that a patient may be becoming septic and know when these patient’s show deterioration in clinical signs. What makes them special is that they only stand a chance of recovery if they receive early and aggressive intervention and first class dedicated nursing care which can be extremely rewarding.
