Bundled Therapies in Sepsis

Chapter
Part of the Respiratory Medicine book series (RM)

Abstract

In recent years, there has been an increased focus on delivering appropriate, efficient, and effective medical care. As a result of this, a number of tools and techniques have been developed and increasingly used to assist in this process. One such entity is that of care bundles or, more simply, bundles. These are a set of evidence-based interventions that, when implemented together, tend to result in significantly better outcomes than when implemented individually [1]. Bundles usually consistent of three to five elements and are targeted for a defined patient population or care setting. Their effectiveness is centered on bringing together independent practices and tying them into a package that needs to be completed for each encounter with these patients or care settings [2].
