Paediatrician- septic shock

Community-acquired septic shock is a frequent cause of PICU hospitalization with rates of hospital mortality up to 10%. Pediatric septic shock is associated with a range of possible neurologic, cognitive, and physical health changes following hospitalization and often requires intensive medical follow-up that poses a significant burden on families. Characterizing family outcomes after pediatric septic shock is particularly important given that International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock identify the promotion of family-centered care as a priority. Systematic reviews of pediatric critical illness have called for longitudinal studies to elucidate trajectories and factors associated with family functioning over time to inform future family-level prevention and intervention approaches.


Critical Care Nursing is an important part of Nursing with a focus of complete care of the patients. Journal of Intensive and Critical Care Nursing is a newly launched Open access, Peer-reviewed scientific journal which will be dedicated to paromote the scientific community dealing with utmost care of critically ill patients in the area of Critical Care Nursing, Intensive Care Medicine, Emergency and Critical Care.
