What Have We Learned from the Surviving Sepsis Campaign?
The Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) was an initiative of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), the International Sepsis Forum (ISF) and the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). It was developed with the aim of improving the diagnosis and treatment of sepsis. Now, 2 years after the three planned phases of the SSC reached a conclusion in December 2008, is a good time to reflect on what the SSC has taught us.
