If there is any suspected SIRS (Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome) or Sepsis, the following lab tests should be collected ASAP:  ABG CBC, Complete Metabolic Blood Panel (CMP), Coagluation studies Chest xray, Cardiac enzymes Cultures of bowel, urine, sputum, or any other fluids Lactate levels Urine analysis EKG

We have a new sepsis management protocol based on this progression from SIRS to septic shock.

The Creatinine Clearance (Cockcroft-Gault Equation) predicts Creatinine Clearance from serum Creatinine.

The Confusion Assessment Method for the ICU (CAM-ICU) monitors delirium in ICU patients.

Well, this was the most awful experience I have been through. 12 bowel resections later... I hope I never see sepsis on my medical chart!

Diagnosis of Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS), Sepsis, Severe Sepsis, and Septic Shock: Sepsis — an often missed diagnosis ; Can a medical student, fresh out of the classroom years, really catch a septic patient? We learn that it’s caused by systemic inflammation from bacterial toxins and in our minds, we imagine the septic patient being hooked up to tubes and monitors on the verge of dying. In many ways, this picture is true. Sepsis and systemic inflammatory response syndrome…
