Sepsis occurs when an infection enters the bloodstream. Unless properly diagnosed or treated, the condition can quickly deteriorate. The very young and very old are more susceptible to sepsis, although people of any age can contract this horrific condition. Sepsis is caused when infections in one part of the body, such as the lungs, abdomen or skin, spread into other parts of the body. When people suffer infections after surgery, they are at risk of sepsis.
Sepsis is treated with intravenous fluids and antibiotics. When treated early, the majority of patients will survive. Unfortunately, when doctors delay diagnosis or delay treatment of a festering infection, the patient has a much poorer prognosis. Sepsis can lead to debilitating injuries and death.
Sepsis kills tens of thousands of people each year. Despite these tragedies, most people do not even know what sepsis is until they or a loved one has it. By this time, it is often too late. If you have lost a loved one to sepsis, a medical malpractice law firm can help you get answers and justice.
