Within this context, EGDT has been introduced as an interesting approach characterized by early recognition and prompt initiation of a structured treatment algorithm.

Lactate clearance vs central venous oxygen saturation as goals of early sepsis therapy: Support Care Cancer ; EGDT was also the subject of both experimental and observational studies and became a widely accepted treatment approach. Yet, the conceptual framework underlying EGDT is still considered as the cornerstone for the early management of sepsis and septic shock 78.

Table Summary of systematic review included in this review.

For example, the beneficial effect of EGDT was influenced by the economic status of the involved research centers and only confirmed in studies from low-income countries [RR: The effects of earlier resuscitation on following therapeutic response in sepsis with hypoperfusion. Since the first introduction of EGDT by Rivers, its implementation in clinical practice had markedly improved management of sepsis and probably explained the significant reduction in mortality over the last ten years Table 1 36 – The critical 3- to 6-hour resuscitation window may be neglected or inadvertently allowed to pass.

Another study showed that inability to achieve early resuscitation goals OR: Intensive Care Med ; Early goal-directed therapy is a more specific form of therapy used for the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock. Early recognition refers to the prompt identification of patients presenting with an acute systemic inflammatory response to infection.

Mortality related to severe sepsis and septic shock among critically ill patients in Australia and New Zealand, One year mortality of patients treated with an emergency department based early goal directed therapy protocol for severe sepsis and septic shock: Importantly, mortality of xepsis and septic shock is markedly reduced when physicians are engaged in an educational and quality improvement programs that incorporates eget systemic components recommended by the SCC guideline 9198 – EGDT, as compared to usual eggdt care, does not appear to improve outcomes but results in greater expense.

During the following years, the EGDT concept was progressively expanded to incorporate interventions such as early initiation of antibiotics, adequate source control, and more elaborated fluid and hemodynamic resuscitation measures.

However, the impact of timing of EGDT on mortality remains speculative. The care provided included the use of lactate and ScvO 2which were completely blinded to the ICU clinicians. Prospective trial of real-time electronic surveillance to expedite early care of severe sepsis. Based on our experience, a mixed ICU receives half of patients from the ED and the other half from the ward and operating theatre Bundled care for septic shock: A randomized trial of protocol-based care for early septic shock.

The Surviving Sepsis Campaign: Current evidence supports the idea that EGDT may benefit ICU patients more than ED subjects because of a better knowledge of the time window between diagnosis of sepsis and start of treatment.

The importance of early recognition of sepsis In some studies, delayed initiation of EGDT was associated with improved outcome, compared with non-compliance, suggesting that late initiation is better than no initiation 56 – Increase in blood culture collection and CXR, no increase in lactate collection and antibiotic use.
