How does a patient die from sepsis? What happens to their body, vessels and organs?

When someone experiences an infection, every cell of their body is compromised. With the right clinical assessment skills and knowledge it is possible to identify sepsis early and save lives.

What is Sepsis?

Sepsis is an overactive response to an infection causing the body to damage its own organs and tissue (Sepsis Alliance 2017).

Sepsis can be caused by any infectious pathogen (WHO 2018).

When chemicals are released from the infection into the systemic circulation, the body then recognises the foreign body and the inflammatory process begins, leading to coagulation (blood clotting) and hypoperfusion (decreased blood supply to the organs). This impaired blood supply starves the organs of oxygen, causing significant damage (NIH 2019).
