Extract

To the Editor We were disappointed to see that the Sepsis-3 consensus panel, convened with the support of major US and international critical care societies to formulate new definitions for sepsis and septic shock, included no women, no underrepresented minority members, and no members from developing countries.1 This panel followed another invited consensus group convened a few years ago to address the definition of the acute respiratory distress syndrome that included only 1 woman out of 15 task force members and lacked representation from countries beyond North America and western Europe.2
