Well done.
By Jerard C. on 06. July 2021 for Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: Treatment

Lots of very good information. I would have been nice to see a few more ECG traces to help out with the understanding

 
Great lecture
By Suzanne S. on 10. May 2021 for Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: Sources & Diagnosis

Very clear and useful! I especially like how she reemphasizes that some people in septic shock are compensated, so we must be careful and look for subtle clues of sepsis and septic shock.
