Health News By Kathy Steinke
Sepsis is a life-threatening complication of an infection. Any type of infection can lead to sepsis but the most common varieties include: pneumonia, abdominal infection; kidney infection or bloodstream infection. Anyone can develop sepsis, but it’s most common and dangerous in older adults or those with weak immune systems. Early treatment improves chances for survival. To be diagnosed with sepsis you must have at least two these symptoms: temperature above 101 degrees; heart rate higher than 90 beats per minute; respiratory rate higher than 20 breaths per minute. Severe sepsis symptoms may include: significantly decreased urine output; abrupt change in mental status; difficulty breathing; abnormal heart pumping function; abdominal pain; abnormal platelet count. Sepsis occurs in people either in or out of the hospital. Sepsis can impair blood flow to your brain, heart, and kidneys. Sepsis can also cause blood clots to form in your organs and in your arms, legs, fingers and toes – leading to varying degrees of organ failure and gangrene. Most people recover from sepsis, but the mortality rate if you develop septic shock is nearly 50 percent. An episode of severe sepsis may place you at a higher risk of future infections. If you get an infection or develop signs and symptoms of sepsis after surgery, hospitalization or an infection – seek medical care immediately.
