Question:

You are receiving a bedside report on a 78-year old female admitted for RLE cellulitis from a cat scratch and related sepsis. Her last vital signs were temp 100, HR 92, RR 23, BP 102/69, O2 sat 96% on 2L/NC. While at bedside, you and the off going nurse note that her urine output in her Foley catheter had only 40ml for the last 2-hours. You check her morning labs and note a creatinine of 2.3 (no history of renal disease). Is this a change in condition? Or expected abnormal?

Andrea B.
Answer:

Answer: Change in condition. We already know the patient is septic (SIRS + infection), so her temp, HR, and RR are aligned with her diagnosis. Sepsis + end-organ damage, however (Creatinine > 2 and decreased urine output), means she has progressed to SEVERE sepsis, which is a change in condition.
