 Description:

Sepsis is a serious medical condition that is the result of the immune response to a serious infection. Septicaemia is systemic sepsis caused by bactemeria, which reflects the involvement of bacteria in the systemic. Even the term septecaemia is used in general to refer to sepsis. In the US, sepsis is the leading cause of death in patients with non-coronary ICU, and the 10th most common type of death in general. Sepsis is normal in the elderly, immunocompromised and critically ill patients and is often more severe. Cancer happens in 1-2 percent of all hospitalizations, and accounts for up to 25 percent of the use of ICU beds. In intensive care units globally, it is a significant cause of death, with mortality rates ranging from 20 percent for sepsis to 40 percent for extreme sepsis and over 60 percent for septic shock. The book brings together a group of experts to discuss how the various mechanisms involved in early and late sepsis interact. It addresses the common, but under-recognized sepsis disorder and explores new ways of preventing and treating it. It explains various early and late sepsis pharmocological approaches to the therapy. This provides a detailed description of the various physiologic processes involved in sepsis. It is an important resource for both doctors and clinicians concerned with critical care. It is also useful reading for immunologists, endocrinologists, neuroendocrinologists, physiologists and pharmacologists. The drawing on multi-professional editors and writers brings together the variety of perspectives and expertise within the critical care team to produce a text that is both comprehensive and tailored to the individual needs of its intended audience. To experts and those already qualified in their profession, the essence of the text, written and published by experienced professionals in the field can provide an important source of information and training text.
