CDC declares sepsis a medical emergency

Critical Care SmartBrief | Aug 26, 2016

The CDC has released a report declaring sepsis a medical emergency that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment and said 80% of cases originate outside of the hospital and 72% of patients with sepsis had chronic diseases that demanded regular medical care or recently used health care services. Children younger than age 1, adults over 65, and patients with chronic conditions or weakened immune systems are particularly at risk and should work to prevent infections that could lead to sepsis, said Dr. Anthony Fiore, chief of the CDC's Epidemiological Research and Innovations Branch.
