Sepsis in the Emergency Department


A large prospective database study


This research project started in February 2016. With the help of a student sepsis team, a large amount of data will be prospectively collected from patients with (suspicion of) infection and/or sepsis who are admitted to the ED for the internist or emergency physician. This data collection runs seven days a week from 8:00 until 21:00. With this database several study projects are currently undertaken (see researchproject from Vincent Quinten). In the future we hope to expand this database and research project including bio banking and translational research in collaboration with Hjalmar Bouma.
