Comments on ‘Recognition of sepsis in primary care: a survey among GPs’.

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Recently, in the BJGP Open an article was published about how GPs recognize a sepsis. The authors’ final conclusion was that the history, the general appearance and a gut feeling are more important elements than body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, and peripheral oxygen saturation in self-reported cases of patients referred due to a possible serious infection.

An eLetter about the role of gut feelings was published by Marie Barais, Erik Stolper and Paul Van Royen. To view it, navigate to the article by using this link and clicking on “eLetter” tab.
