    After learning the results of blood tests, your doctor may switch to a different antibiotic that's targeted to fight the particular bacteria causing the infection. Health care-associated infections are one of, if not the most frequent type of adverse event to occur during care delivery and affect hundreds of millions of patients worldwide every year 6. Many of these people will be in low and medium risk groups but evidence is lacking as to who can be sent home safely and who needs intravenous or oral antibiotics. Sepsis ranks highly among the causes leading to this avoidable mortality. The syndrome is the aftermath of the dissemination of an infectious process into and through the blood stream. In spite of the advances in supportive care and antibiotic therapy, the outcome of sepsis has not changed significantly.

    Any type of infectious pathogen can potentially cause sepsis. Sepsis patients with resistant pathogens have been found to have a higher risk of hospital mortality. Your workplace will have local formal policies and protocols for the early identification and management of patients with sepsis, which you should familiarise yourself with regularly. If your blood pressure remains too low even after receiving intravenous fluids, you may be given a vasopressor medication, which constricts blood vessels and helps to increase blood pressure.

    Sepsis can lead to multiple organ failure and death especially if not recognised early and treated quickly. Depending on your condition, you may need to have a machine help you breathe. It is a serious complication of infection, particularly in low- and middle-income countries where it represents a major cause of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Thus, the spectrum of sepsis is very wide and requires a multidisciplinary approach.
