On 14th December 2018, The Emergency Department of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre held an Intermediate Sepsis Workshop for all emergency physicians and post graduate doctors. It's a great pleasure to have this workshop sponsored by Edward Lifescience. The definition of sepsis and its clinical stages characterisation have been changing for the past decades until most recently in 2018. It remains high mortality rate and healthcare provider find it challenging to understand and manage sepsis. Thus, this workshop was held to augment the understanding and management on sepsis with an ultimate aim to identify and treat sepsis as early as possible based on the latest Survival Sepsis Campaign Guideline. In conjunction to the workshop, Edward Lifescience took this opportunity to introduce non-invasive ClearSight system which extends the benefits of continuous hemodynamic monitoring includes measuring stroke volume, stroke volume variation, cardiac output, systemic vascular resistance and continuous blood pressure.
