Sepsis is something that scares us all. The missed or delayed diagnosis of sepsis is a common cause for litigation in paediatric practitioners. But is there a way we can spot every case? Up to 20 percent of children presenting to the paediatic emergency department have a temperature but they do not all have sepsis. Is there a better way than relying on the gut reaction of the parent or the clinician. Arj Rao introduces us to a framework that might make things a little clearer.
