from HealthDay News via Medical Xpress
A typical emergency department sees few cases of sepsis among adolescents, according to a research letter published online Aug. 14 in JAMA Pediatrics. Following the case of Rory Staunton, who was seen in an emergency department, discharged, and subsequently died of septic shock in 2012, Idris V.R. Evans, M.D., from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and colleagues examined the electronic health records of healthy adolescents who presented to 12 emergency departments with signs and symptoms similar to those of Rory Staunton.
