In an effort to better understand the interaction between the different mediators, the investigators propose to examine the time course of mediators, the indexes of organ injury and the coagulation cascade.
All patients admitted to the ICU (Including VA Medical Center, University Hospital and Presbyterian hospital) will be screened for enrollment in the study. Patients who have the diagnosis of sepsis will be asked to volunteer. We will match sepsis patients with other ICU patients without the diagnosis of sepsis. The latter will also be asked to volunteer.
Patients will be stratified into three groups:
- SIRS of non-septic origin
- Other ICU patients
Routine laboratory data and clinical data (see flow sheet) will be collected. The plasma or serum will be frozen separately until the target number of patients is met. Measurements of inflammatory mediators and other cytokines/injury markers will be carried out at that point.

To evaluate the discriminative power of BIS monitoring to classify the degree of mental state associated with the PCT graded sepsis cascade, and to assess its utility for monitoring the im...
In this prospective study, the ability of a machine learning algorithm to predict sepsis and influence clinical outcomes, will be investigated at Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH).
A sepsis early warning predictive algorithm, InSight, has been developed and validated on a large, diverse patient cohort. In this prospective study, the ability of InSight to predict seve...
Breath samples will be collected from patients suspected of sepsis/severe sepsis or septic shock according to hospital sepsis screening criteria in the Emergency Department.
A questionnaire was provided, including clinical vignettes and free text answers, to assess and evaluate the ability of resident physicians to identify systemic inflammatory response syndr...
Recent clinical studies have shown that anticoagulant therapy might be effective only in specific at-risk subgroups of patients with sepsis and coagulation dysfunction. The definition of sepsis was re...
Proper functioning of high density lipoprotein (HDL) is necessary for protection against sepsis. However, previous work has demonstrated that HDL becomes oxidized and dysfunctional (Dys-HDL) during se...
Although sepsis is the leading cause of death from infection, there are few population-level epidemiological sepsis reports. The impact of sepsis-related deaths on all-cause hospital mortality is insu...
New sepsis and septic shock definitions could change the epidemiology of sepsis because of differences in criteria. We therefore compared the sepsis populations identified by the old and new definitio...
Sepsis is one of the leading causes of death in intensive care unit patients. Early detection of sepsis is vital because mortality increases as the sepsis stage worsens.
Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.
Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.
Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.
Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).
Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
Sepsis, septicaemia and blood poisoning
Septicaemia (another name for blood poisoning) refers to a bacterial infection of the blood, whereas sepsis can also be caused by viral or fungal infections. Sepsis is not just limited to the blood and can affect the whole body, including the organ...

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
