The original version of this article contained two mistakes. In Table 2, under the “MEW criteria” heading, “DBP < 100 mmHg” should read “DBP > 100 mmHg.” The correct Table 2 is shown here.
Table 2

Screening tools for maternal sepsis

SIRS criteria

Temperature > 38 °C or < 36 °C

Respiratory rate > 20 breaths per minute or PaCO2 < 32 mmHg

Pulse >90 beats per minute

White blood cell count >12,000 cells/mm3 or < 4000 cells/mm3, or bands >10%

qSOFA

Respiratory rate > 22 breaths per minute

SBP < 100 mmHg

Altered mental status

MEW criteria

SBP < 90* or > 160 mmHg

DBP > 100 mmHg

HR < 50 or > 120*

RR < 10 or > 30*

Oxygen saturation on room air at sea level < 95%*

Oliguria <35 mL/h for ≥ 2 h*

Maternal agitation, confusion, or unresponsiveness*

Patient with pre-eclampsia reporting a non-remitting headache or shortness of breath

*Parameters consistent with the physiology of sepsis

The first sentence of the 3rd paragraph under “Antibiotics” section should read: “Early antibiotic therapy with broad-spectrum antibiotics is critical on labor and delivery and requires a collaborative effort with other practitioners.”
