Shakespeare said, “Sick or not sick, that is the question.” We’ll maybe not, but that’s what we commonly want to know in a patient with suspected sepsis. In this episode, we interview emergency physician and critical care fellow Dr. Ran about how to recognize, workup, and treat sepsis. We will talk about the use of ultrasound, pressors, and antibiotic choices as well as how to recognize the subtle clues that a patient may be headed for impending badness.
