Hello, Abdul Azis Sani. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Sepsis is a life-threatening complication due to infection. This situation is caused by an excessive response of the immune system to the conditions of infection. The chemicals (inflammatory mediators) released by the immune system in the face of infections actually cause widespread inflammation in various places throughout the body. Infections that can trigger sepsis can vary, which often includes infections of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, burns, etc. The diagnosis of sepsis is made through examination of vital signs, blood tests, and is supported by evidence of infection in the body.
Sepsis can develop into more severe to the extent of septic shock and even multiorgan dysfunction syndrome. Sepsis shock can be characterized by severe sepsis accompanied by a decrease in blood pressure that cannot be treated with intravenous fluids alone. Treatment for septic shock includes antibiotics that are suitable for treating the source of infection, administering oxygen, fluids through infusion, and administering drugs to maintain blood pressure stability. If there are indications, medication can also be given to stabilize blood sugar levels.
The prognosis for sepsis shock is generally not very good, but individual evaluation of each case is needed. Do not hesitate to consult with a specialist in internal medicine who handles patients.
