Pediatric considerations.

OBJECTIVE: In 2003, critical care and infectious disease experts representing 11 international organizations developed management guidelines for other supportive therapies in sepsis that would be of practical use for the bedside clinician, under the auspices of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign, an international effort to increase awareness and to improve outcome in severe sepsis.

DESIGN AND METHODS: The process included a modified Delphi method, a consensus conference, several subsequent smaller meetings of subgroups and key individuals, teleconferences, and electronic-based discussion among subgroups and among the entire committee. Pediatric representatives attended the various section meetings and workshops to contrast adult and pediatric management. These are published here as pediatric considerations.

CONCLUSION: Pediatric considerations included a more likely need for intubation due to low functional residual capacity, more difficult intravenous access, fluid resuscitation based on weight with 40-60 mL kg or higher needed, decreased cardiac output and increased systemic vascular resistance as the most common hemodynamic profile, greater use of physical examination therapeutic endpoints, the unsettled issue of high-dose steroids for therapy of septic shock, and greater risk of hypoglycemia with aggressive glucose control.
