Acute Resuscitation In Paediatric SEpsis (ARISE-KIDS) - a randomised controlled trial to reduce morbidity and mortality due to sepsis in children
This study aims to establish effective treatment for sepsis in children. Sepsis is a disease caused by overwhelming infection, which kills more children than road traffic accidents and has a huge impact on patients, families, and society. The study will test the two most promising treatments for sepsis resuscitation in children, with the aim of reducing the number of deaths and improving long-term outcomes. The results are expected to inform best practice in Australia, and globally.
