Joint Statement on Sepsis and COVID-19

On June 16th 2021, a consensus paper by ESICM, SCCM, and the GSA was published in Intensive Care Medicine, emphasising the importance of recognising that patients critically ill with COVID-19 have viral sepsis, despite some differences from sepsis caused by other pathogens. “Sepsis should become a widely used umbrella term for a condition that is caused by different pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2”, says Tex Kissoon, GSA President. The paper was co-authored by Prof Simon Finfer Director Australian Sepsis Network.
