Surviving Sepsis: Early Management Saves Lives
Sepsis has been named as the most expensive in-patient cost in American hospitals in 2011 at over $20 billion each year. Forty percent of patients diagnosed with severe sepsis do not survive. Until a cure is found, early detection is the surest hope for survival. Up to 50% of survivors suffer from post-sepsis syndrome.
“A life threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Sepsis leads to shock, multiple organ failure and death especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. Sepsis remains the primary cause of death from infection despite advances in modern medicine, including vaccines, antibiotics and acute care. Millions of people die of sepsis every year worldwide.” – The Merinoff Symposium 2010: public definition
