Sepsis management

    Helping set patients at risk for sepsis on the right clinical path


    Sepsis is one of the most prevalent causes of death in the United States.1 As the current COVID-19 pandemic persists, we are learning that sepsis is a common complication that might be directly caused by COVID-19.2

    Sepsis is responsible for ~ 270,000 deaths in the U.S. annually 3

    100% of COVID-19 nonsurvivors had sepsis and 70% had septic shock*2

    *Based on one study

    Sepsis is the number one complication seen in COVID-19 nonsurvivors 2

    You are faced with sepsis and COVID-19 challenges and we are here to support you

    Let's talk


    When it comes to patients at risk for sepsis, time to appropriate therapy is critical

    By reducing time from recognition to accurate identification and treatment,
    you are setting them on the right clinical path. Our sepsis management program can help.

    BD? Sepsis Management Program—from initial recognition to treatment


    Mortality from septic shock increases 7.6% for every hour that treatment is delayed4 among patients with septic shock within the first 6 hours of onset of hypotension.

    The timely identification of a patient at risk for sepsis is necessary for setting the course of action to intervene with appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

    ~ 20% of blood culture samples have been reported as underfilled in the U.S.6

    Support optimal blood culture specimen collection; sufficient blood volume is a critical determinant for optimal organism recovery. The yield of pathogens recovered increases in direct proportion to the volume of blood cultured. 6

    80% of sepsis deaths could be prevented by quicker diagnosis and treatment7

    Decrease time to detection, followed by timely and accurate organism identification (ID) and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST). Reduction in transport time and faster incubation of blood cultures has been shown to reduce turnaround times and accelerate antibiotic switching.8

    Let’s collaborate to optimize how you manage patients across the sepsis care pathway using BD solutions. The approach will include:

    1. Aligning metrics to your initiatives
    2. Establishing a baseline with an assessment
    3. Identifying areas of improvement across people, processes and technologies
    4. Sustaining best practices through hospital champions, performance dashboards and ongoing education and training of BD solutions


    By focusing on the sepsis care pathway—from recognition of patients at-risk for sepsis through their treatment—using BD solutions, you can start on the journey of:

    • Reducing time to recognition of patients at risk for sepsis
    • Improving blood culture collection and optimizing diagnostic accuracy
    • Reducing time to detection and lab turnaround time

    With the ultimate goal of reducing time to appropriate therapy and improving patient outcomes.
