Description Background: Sepsis is a persistent issue globally and causes nearly 270,000 deaths in the United States each year, placing a significant burden on the US economy and the health care system. Over 40% of patients diagnosed with sepsis arrive at the Emergency Department (ED) via Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Recent studies have identified a relationship between the degree of education, recognition, and understanding of the treatment of sepsis by EMS personnel and patient outcomes, including sepsis mortality rates. Earlier recognition of sepsis in the pre-hospital setting may prevent the advancement of the infectious state and improve patient outcomes.
