Severe sepsis can be a catastrophic condition that is often associated with poor outcomes. The early diagnosis and management of the condition are vital in order to improve the chances of survival. However, owing to the syndromal nature of its definition and the lack of a biomarker able to accurately confirm the condition, the diagnosis of sepsis is challenging. Even more challenging is the prediction of how these patients will respond to the therapy and whether they will survive the intensive care and the hospital admission.

Abstract

Severe sepsis can be a catastrophic condition that is often associated with poor outcomes. The early diagnosis and management of the condition are vital in order to improve the chances of survival. However, owing to the syndromal nature of its definition and the lack of a biomarker able to accurately confirm the condition, the diagnosis of sepsis is challenging. Even more challenging is the prediction of how these patients will respond to the therapy and whether they will survive the intensive care and the hospital admission.
