Sepsis

Common Name(s)

Sepsis

Sepsis is a severe reaction to a bacterial infection anywhere in the body. Symptoms include an increased heart rate, fever, rapid breathing, weakness, and feeling ill. Sepsis can cause damage to many important organ systems in the body. Septic shock occurs when sepsis progresses and a person's blood pressure drops, which is very dangerous and may lead to death. Sepsis is most common in elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. It can usually be treated with antibiotics and intravenous fluids.
