Septic shock is a medical emergency that requires early identification and aggressive treatment. The latest definition of septic shock emphasizes the presence of hyperlactatemia and vasopressor dependence as markers of increased mortality risk. The management of septic shock involves prompt antimicrobial therapy, fluid resuscitation, vasopressor therapy, source control and supportive care. Further research is needed to improve the outcomes of patients with septic shock.
