Fortis Escorts Jaipur organizes ‘ACE SEPSIS SYMPOSIA 2023’ to discuss Critical Care approaches related to Sepsis Care

Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur Aug 21, 2023

Jaipur, August 21, 2023: The Department of Emergency & Critical Care at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur recently conducted ACE SEPSIS SYMPOSIA, a prestigious program at Hotel Clarks, Amer. The event was led by Dr. Pankaj Anand, Additional Director of Critical Care at Fortis Escorts Jaipur, where leading medical experts, researchers and healthcare professionals, addressed the emerging challenges in critical care and sepsis management.

Sepsis is a condition that occurs when an existing infection triggers a chain of events throughout the body. Infections that cause sepsis usually begin in the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, skin, or lungs.  The symposium focused on few key topics: 

- Redefining Sepsis, which highlighted the most recent advances in sepsis management including early detection tools and evidence-based treatment options that have the potential to transform patient outcomes. 

- Multi Drug Resistant Bug which is particularly a bacterium. As of now India faces several challenges related to it. Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and Extensively Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis (XDR-TB) both are similar but involve different treatment protocols.
Participants gained mastery over effective management approaches tailored to this changing scenario. As we embrace the future of medical progress, 

- “Newer Antibiotics” and latest developments within antibiotic therapy were also discussed during the event.

Dr Anand said, “These cutting-edge innovations play a critical role in treatment and management of sepsis. One of the most critical components of these efforts is antibiotic stewardship, a multidisciplinary endeavor, employing a collection of interventions in a variety of health care settings with the aim of promoting appropriate utilization of antibiotics. This aspect is pivotal in mitigating the global threat of antibiotic resistance.” 

Participants should expect revolutionary outcomes for patients with an emphasis on rethinking sepsis management through the integration of early detection techniques and evidence-based treatment alternatives.
