Sepsis - A life threatening situation

Older patients, infants and chronically ill are especially susceptible to this condition. Is there anything you can do about it?

When Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the American CDC came home from work his son was pale and running a high fever. He admitted that he was sure his son was going to die. "It was terrifying to witness how quickly one's situation can change from healthy to terribly ill" he reported.


The baby was suffering from sepsis, a life threatening condition caused by an infection that isn't controlled properly.


Dr. Frieden's son was saved, but many others aren't as lucky. In the US, over 1 million people are diagnosed with sepsis with 28-50% dying as a result. Older patients, infants and chronically ill are especially susceptible to this condition although anyone can get sepsis if not treated properly.


Flu, pneumonia or a urinary tract infection can all be responsible for Sepsis. In a healthy body, the body's immune system fights off infection. Sometimes, an infection can spread throughout the body and blood stream. As a result, the immune system starts attacking the body in an attempt to remove the infection. Once this happens, blood pressure drops and blood doesn't flow to our vital organs. Organ damage and even death follow quickly if not treated.


Studies show that sepsis is the number one cause of death, more than cancer and cardiovascular disease. Awareness of the condition and its symptoms are surprisingly low. To address the problem, the CDC has launched an online campaign to raise awareness of the condition.


First, seek immediate medical advice when you recognize the following symptoms; shivers or fever, severe pain and discomfort, clammy skin, disorientation, shortness of breath and a fast pulse.


Second, raise the possibility of sepsis when visiting your doctor. Asking "Could this be sepsis?" or simply stating that "I'm worried about sepsis". The idea is to enable patients and physicians to recognize the symptoms and refer for emergency medical attention as they would in the case of a stroke or a heart attack.
