Dear colleagues,

Sepsis syndrome has been widely recognized as one of the major causes of overall-mortality.
The Hellenic Sepsis Study Group was organized in May 2006 by the Hellenic Society of Chemotherapy. Its aim was to study a cohort of septic patients in Greece aiming to the characteristics of sepsis in our country.

The undersigned are coordinators. Several departments of Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, General Surgery and Critical Care have joined us until today. All members participate actively by registering clinical data of hospitalized septic patients.

Communication takes place by electronic mail whereas assemblies are taking place at regular time intervals.
This web-site has been created in an attempt to provide the Greek physician with useful information regarding the diagnosis and management of patients with sepsis. It is also aiming to facilitate the communication between members of the study group.
