Sepsis and septic shock are syndromes that often overlap in clinical manifestation. Emerging evidence suggests that early recognition and early initiation of therapy for sepsis are the most important components in the management of sepsis and septic shock. The current review is to update the management of sepsis and septic shock,including early recognition and management of sepsis significantly improves short-term and long-term mortality; early fluid resuscitation and appropriate antibiotic therapy have the most impact on survival; and infection source should be controlled within 24 hours of initiating management.
