We have been utilizing our Sepsis Protocol for the last Month and have been
screening and intervening on several patients. There is one Level that we need
clarification for. Our Protocol says any Lactate Level ≥2 is considered to
indicate sepsis, but our lab range is Normal for 0.4- 2.0. Would like to know
how everyone is using this? Thanks Pam

Subject: [Sepsis Groups] Lab times
Hi, we are confused about something here.
On our lab report in our EMR, it lists a time. It's the draw time, not report
time, though it doesn't say draw time. We just know it is.
Can we use that for severe sepsis criteria since it doesn't specify draw time?
