The use of procalcitonin or similar biomarkers may facilitate discontinuance of antibiotics in patients with clinical improvement and no further evidence of infection (...) host responses. Source control is an essential component of sepsis management. Venous access In all cases of septic shock, adequate venous access must be ensured for volume resuscitation. When sepsis is suspected, 2 large-bore (16-gauge) intravenous (IV) lines should be placed if possible to allow administration of aggressive fluid resuscitation and broad-spectrum antibiotics. Central venous access is useful when administering vasopressor agents and in establishing a stable venous infusion site
