Intermediate Sepsis Workshop and Advance Hemodynamic Monitoring in ED (sponsor by Edward Lifescience) 
Speaker: Dr Tan Toh Leong
Senior Lecturer and Emergency Department
AMS UKMMC Committee

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 motality 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.

Sepsis Interprofessional Workshop at Nottingham University, United Kingdom, China and Malaysia Oct 2018

Once a year, we will conduct a sepsis workshop for the pharmacy students from Nottingham University UK, China and Malaysia.

Lecture Synopsis

Lecture 1 (0800-0830) : HKL Sepsis Census by Dr Faisal Salikin
In 2012, sepsis was recorded as the third highest principle cause of death in Malaysia with 16.37% as compared to 13% in 2008. Prevalence of sepsis is estimated to be around 38% based on daily census in Malaysia from year 2006 till 2014.  In this lecture, the HKL sepsis census will be presented along with the KPI the HKL Emergency Department hopes to achieve in controlling the disease.

Lecture 2 (0830-0915) : Identifying Sepsis: The Silent “Pandemic” by Dr Tan Toh Leong
Sepsis remains a leading cause of death in critical care practices to this day, despite advances in resuscitation therapy and also use of modern antibiotics. This lecture highlights the reasons why sepsis is a “silent pandemic” due to difficulties in identification of the condition.

Keynote 1 (0915-1000) : Opening Keynote by Prof Dato' Sri Dr Hj. Abu Hassan Asaari Abdullah
Sepsis is the 10th leading cause of death in most industrialized countries; its incidence is increasing yearly at a rate of approximately 5-10%. Difficulties in its identification cause its increasing prevalence, and, besides causing morbidity and mortality, sepsis also leads to complications in antimicrobial stewardship. A timely revolution is needed in the treatment and management of sepsis, especially in this era of international and borderless travel which encourages the spread of infectious diseases outbreaks.

Lecture 3 (1030-1115) : Sepsis: The Diagnostic Evolution by Dr Tan Toh Leong
Diagnosis of sepsis in a patient who has been suspected of having infections remains difficult to this day, especially in patients where clinical signs and symptoms are vague or are difficult to interpret. Culture and sensitivity (microbiological cultures) lack in sensitivity as it frequently yields negative results due to previous or concomitant antibiotic therapy, or there was error in collecting its sample. Advances in sepsis diagnostics will be presented in this talk to aid clinicians in making the best decisions for their patients.

Lecture 4 (1115-1200) : Sepsis Management: The Challenge Begins by Dr Ida Zarina Zaini
Sepsis is the only treatable disease that recovers fully if the appropriate interventions are started early. The question is: How early? And with what interventions? How do we determine if the intervention given was appropriate?

Lecture 5 (1200-1245) : Sepsis in Special Groups: The Pitfalls by Dr Hidayah Shafie
How do we provide the best and most suitable care for sepsis patients in special groups, such as pregnant mothers, oncology patients and those with immune deficiencies? And what are the pitfalls? This lecture provides some answers.

Lecture 6 (1245-1330) : Antibiotic Stewardship in HKL by Dr Leong Chee Loon
The Emergency Department is managing a lot of acute emergency as primary care. It is very challenging to give an appropriate diagnosis at emergency especially if patient are critically ill. Thus, judicious use of antibiotics is going to be very challenging.
The lecture will be on the importance of things to be done at A&E to support the antibiotic stewardship program such as the importance of taking all the culture before starting antibiotics. Delayed in starting antibiotics will affect outcome of patient, but proper assess of the source of infection and judicious use of antibiotic is also important at emergency department, as resistant organism is a global issue and this will lead to "no action today, no cure tomorrow".

Lecture 7 (1415-1500) : Legal Burden on Sepsis by Dr Nizam Ishak
Due to increase in awareness among patient about their right under civil law, the health care providers who treat a patient with sepsis having a potential to be sue in court. This lecture will introduce the medico legal challenge and litigation risk facing by health care provider while treat a sepsis patient.

Lecture 8 (1500-1545) : Infectious Disease Outbreak Preparedness by Dr Ridzuan Dato’ Mohd Isa
In managing sepsis of recent times, it is also critical that healthcare professionals are familiar in dealing with an infectious disease outbreak.  Outbreaks are an ongoing threat to the health and livelihoods of people everywhere. Over the last few decades, there have been several outbreaks related to sepsis which have taken the global community by surprise and drawn new attention to diseases like HIV, and Ebola. On the local front, diseases and outbreaks like dengue remain an on-going challenge. Governments, multilateral institutions, and other organizations have increasingly recognized the threat such diseases pose and have augmented efforts to prepare for and address them.
