Understanding #Sepsis, an #undercover#Killer
Severe sepsis is a raging infection that shuts down organs. It is important to find it fast, but that can be tricky. #Symptoms
Early sepsis must have at least two of the following abnormal vital signs or symptoms: #Fever over 101.3°F (38.5°C) or below 95°F #Heart#rate over 90 #beats/minute #Respiratory rate over 20 #breaths/minute
A confirmed or probable infection
Severe sepsis has symptoms: #Mottled#skin
Decreased urine output
Change in mental awareness or alertness
Decreased platelet counts (which are particles in the blood that promote clotting) #Difficulty breathing which usually requires being put on a ventilator #Abnormal heart function usually leading to circulatory collapse and shock
This is the next phase of sepsis called septic shock.
Causes and Risk Factors
Any infection can potentially lead to sepsis if not treated properly.Some of the more common infections that can lead to sepsis are pneumonias, abdominal infections from diverticulitis , appendicitis, urinary tract infections, hospital-acquired infections from IV catheters or invasive procedures and implanted medical devices.
Recent research is looking at a chemical marker in the blood called suPAR that may predict fatality of severe sepsis in emergency patients. However, the use of these are still in the future.
Any infection has the potential to get worse and make you septic. Some tips that may help:
#Take all infections seriously.
Make sure you quickly treat any potential infection.
Take all your prescribed antibiotics until finished or consult your doctor to see if you must finish them.
