    Abstract [en]

    Background: Sepsis is a life-threatening condition caused by bacterial, viral or fungal infections. The infection can occur through lungs, urinary tract, intestine or severe skin infections and may cause sepsis, septic shock or death. Symptoms of sepsis usually debut with symptoms and signs of infection, systemic inflammatory response (SIRS). Sepsis treatment consists of antibiotics which should be administrated immediately after samples and blood culture have been submitted for analysis.Aim: The aim of the literature study was to survey the factors that may contribute to nurses´ early identification of sepsis.Method: Literature study in which nine articles with quantitative approach were included. The search for articles to include in our study was performed in the databases CINAHL and PubMed.Results: The result was categorized into two main categories: Demographic factors and tools for identification of sepsis and a total of five subcategories.Conclusion: The results of the literature study suggests that the nurse needs further education regarding signs and symptoms of sepsis, education regarding tools and guidelines, and that the tools used for identification need to be improved to be considered reliable.
