Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening response to infection. During sepsis, the infected cells stimulate the release of immune substances into the bloodstream, which travel throughout the body causing widespread inflammation.
Sepsis affects more than a million Americans each year. It’s dangerous, as it can cause blood clots, leaky blood vessels, tissue damage, organ failure and even death.
