Editorial Note on De compensation in children during emergency department triage

Abstract

In the United States, hospitalizations for severe sepsis doubled between 2000 and 2008, with an overall annual healthcare cost of $146 billion1. In children, sepsis is associated with high morbidity and mortality, especially among vulnerable patients with chronic conditions, who often require intensive treatment to avoid preventable death2. Even the limited number of pediatric deaths caused by sepsis is understood as too heavy a loss to bear when one considers that early interventions could have prevented it.
