Brief Summary:
The aim of this project is to constitute a prospective cohort of all the patients presenting to the adult emergencies of the University Hospital Centre (CHU) of Rennes for a septic syndrome of community origin.

Condition or disease
Severe Septic Syndrome Septic Shock

Detailed Description:
Severe septic syndrome (SSG) and septic shock (CS) are two frequent and serious complications of infectious diseases. In this context, the optimization of the management of septic patients from their reception in the emergency services must be a priority. However there are no predictors of progression or severity in patients admitted to emergencies despite the recommendations emphasizing the need for screening and early therapeutic management. Many scores have been proposed for intensive care unit but they remain difficult to extrapolate to other services because they are very comprehensive and require information that is difficult to obtain for emergency physicians.
