Despite improved survival rates over recent years, morbidity and mortality of sepsis remain high . Consensus clinical guidelines developed by the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) have led to the development of protocols and bundles in accordance with the adequate clinical evidence . In recent years, some elements of the guidelines have been redefined (or the strength of recommendation revised) in accordance with new findings, in particular bringing into question the protocols employed for early goal-directed therapy (EGDT) and aspects of the now historic Severe Sepsis Management Bundle. Improvements over the last decade are partly based on the acquisition of new data showing that implementation of adequate protocols and bundles is associated with better outcome . The Systemic Inflammation and Sepsis (SIS) Section of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) performed a survey to determine current practices around sepsis recognition and management.
