BMG/Maximilian König

A risk for patients worldwide, sepsis often goes undiagnosed and underestimated. Therefore, I am all the more grateful to the participants of the 2nd World Sepsis Congress for their interest and their commitment to broaden the knowledge of how to prevent and control sepsis and raise public awareness of this condition...


All talks of the 2nd World Sepsis Congress will be recorded and made available to view on demand on our YouTube Channel and Apple Podcasts.
