Study Summary

This trial will test if an emergency medical services (EMS) based sepsis screening and early warning protocol can improve the timing of sepsis care in the emergency department (ED). PRESS Intervention is being used to treat Pyemia in this trial, and patients will not be receiving a placebo. PRESS Intervention has been approved by the FDA for a different condition in the past.
