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).
