Good Morning,
I was wondering if anyone could explain the difference between 'Initial 
Hypotension' (that requires documentation of two BP's) and 'Hypotension as 
evidence of organ dysfunction' that only requires one BP reading. If the 
hypotension is used as organ dysfunction criteria for Severe Sepsis and it is 
the initial hypotension, why aren't two BP's required? I listened to the 
webinar yesterday on v5.3a updates for 2018 and still don't understand. (They 
are on slides 30 and 34 from the presentation).
