Sepsis is caused by the body’s defense system (immune system) working overtime to fight infection. It’s sometimes called septicemia.
The large number of chemicals released into the blood during this process trigger widespread inflammation. This can lead to organ damage. Blood clotting during sepsis reduces blood flow to limbs and vital organs. This deprives them of nutrients and oxygen. In severe cases, one or more organs may fail.
Bacteria gets into the bloodstream and causes a serious infection in an organ such as the kidneys or lungs, or in the bone. Sepsis can be treated with antibiotics, if detected early or it can be lethal.
