Like any viral infection, influenza (flu) can cause viral sepsis. It can also present in conjunction with or be followed by a secondary bacterial infection that can lead to bacterial sepsis. Diagnosing and recognizing a patient’s risk for critical illness related to influenza and sepsis can be challenging. During this webinar, presented by Sepsis Alliance, learners will examine the immunopathology and clinical manifestations of influenza infection and will discuss extrapulmonary complications and linkages between influenza and sepsis. The presenter will also discuss diagnostic testing and treatment for influenza infection. This webinar is free and will offer 1.2 FREE RN CE contact hours for attendees.
