Wide variation in sepsis outcomes by site of infection, type of organ dysfunction

One-fifth of inpatients diagnosed with sepsis met organ dysfunction criteria solely because of a decline in their systolic blood pressure, one of several findings leading the authors of a new study to propose reconsideration of the definition of sepsis.

ICU admission associated with worse outcomes in sepsis, better survival in acute respiratory failure
