Implementing the Surviving Sepsis Bundles in the Medical-Surgical Unit
Monday, January 13, 2014 • 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. • Moscone Center South – Esplanade Ballroom

Accurate execution of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) bundles is essential to the successful
implementation of the SSC’s sepsis improvement efforts. A bundle is a selected set of elements of care
distilled from evidence-based practice guidelines that, when implemented as a group, have an effect on
outcomes beyond that of the individual elements. Using bundles simplifies the complex care of patients
with severe sepsis. For details on bundle implementation, join us for this session to be held during the
Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) 43rd Critical Care Congress.
