Patients Who Survive Sepsis Suffer Higher Death Rates After Hospitalization
Roughly one in four patients with sepsis who survive their hospitalization will continue to have higher levels of inflammation.
According to UPI, a new study reveals approximately 1 of every 3 sepsis survivors will die in the following year.
University of Pittsburgh researchers say the threat of heart disease, stroke and death drove up readmission rates.
Sepsis occurs when the body harms its own organs and tissues after responding to an infection.
