Sepsis Knows No Boundries: It Can Happen To Anyone
April 26, 2016
Hosted by Nancy C. Caralla
In this episode Sepsis will be defined by three Healthcare Clinicians and one Clinician -- a Sepsis survivor. According to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics estimates that, based upon information collected for billing purposes, the number of times people were in the hospital with sepsis or septicemia (another word for sepsis) increase.Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection. If sepsis progresses to septic shock, blood pressure drops dramatically, which may lead to death. Anyone can develop sepsis, but it’s most common and most dangerous in older adults or those with weakened immune systems. Early treatment of sepsis improves chances for survival.
