      <Abstract>Sepsis is a life-threatening organ failure caused by a dysregulated host response to infection, according to the Society of Critical Care Medicine. The aim of this study was to review the literature about the importance of early management of sepsis in the emergency room. It has been denoted that the emergency department is the first place in the hospital in which the patients with sepsis are diagnosed and treated. Accordingly, the emergency department should be well prepared too early manage septic cases. Taken together, the emergency department plays a crucial role in the early management of sepsis and lowers staying length in hospital, mortality, and health cost.</Abstract>
