Evidence Underpinning the U.S. Government–Mandated Hemodynamic Interventions for Sepsis: A Systematic Review
The Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock Early Management Bundle (SEP-1), the sepsis performance measure introduced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), requires up to 5 hemodynamic interventions, as many as 141 tasks, and 3 hours to document for a single patient. The purpose of this systematic review is to evaluate whether moderate- or high-level evidence shows that use of SEP-1 or its hemodynamic interventions improves survival in adults with sepsis.
Conclusion: No high- or moderate-level evidence shows that SEP-1 or its hemodynamic interventions improve survival in adults with sepsis.
