Event Description

Overview: Sepsis and septic Shock are major healthcare problems. It has been described as the Achilles' heel of health care. Sepsis occurs when the immune system goes into over-drive vigorously attacking an expanding infection. It is the No. 1 inpatient hospital expense in the United States, with costs surging by 3X over the last decade to $27 billion. Sepsis is a leading cause of death, morbidity and expense responsible for one third to one-half of hospitalized patients' deaths. In the U.S., more than 1.5 million people develop sepsis, of whom over 250,000 die as a result. It has now become one of the top five causes of hospitalization in for those over the age of 18.
