Sepsis core measures are an integral part of sepsis treatment. Current fluid administration guidelines consist of administering at least 30cc/kg of intravenous fluids (IVF) per ideal body weight (IBW) within the first three hours of sepsis diagnosis regardless of pre-existing comorbidities at risk for fluid overload. This study aims to evaluate the outcomes of patients with a history of congestive heart failure (CHF) and/or chronic kidney disease (CKD) who receive fluid resuscitation for the management of severe sepsis or septic shock.
