Abstract

The understanding of the pathogenesis of sepsis has substantially changed in past years and continues to improve. New therapeutic options are being developed and incorporated into clinical practice. There are different specific interventions and therapies that benefit patients' outcome. As demonstrated by the early goal-directed therapy strategy, the success of the resuscitation treatment is strongly time dependent. The recognition of severe sepsis should be accompanied without delay by very well defined therapeutic measures. In 2002 the Surviving Sepsis Campaign was introduced with the overall goal of increasing clinicians' awareness and improving outcome in severe sepsis and septic shock.
