Re: Suspected sepsis: summary of NICE guidance
Whilst working on a summary of the Sepsis guidelines I noted that your helpful infographic includes one or elements that do not concord with the NICE paper. I hope you do not mind me pointing them out. I have only examined the Under 5 elements. I have not reviewed the criteria for other ages.
1) Under 'Behaviour and history', the High risk criterion of 'No response to social cues' has been omitted.
2) Under 'Breathing', The Moderate to High risk for 3-4 year olds is quoted in the infographic as 30-39 should be 35-39
3) Under 'Temperature', 'Temperature elevated above 38C' under 3 months should be High risk, not Moderate to High risk.
I hope this is helpful.
