sepsis syndrome

clinical evidence of acute infection with hyperthermia or hypothermia, tachycardia, tachypnea and evidence of inadequate organ function or perfusion manifested by at least one of the following: altered mental status, hypoxemia, acidosis, oliguria, or disseminated intravascular coagulation.

sepsis syndrome

A constellation of signs, Sx, and systemic responses caused by a wide range of microorganisms that may eventuate into septic shock; SS is a systemic response to infection
Sepsis syndrome, defining parameters  
• Temperature Hypothermia < 35ºC–96ºF or hyperthermia > 39ºC–101ºF
• Tachycardia > 90 beats/minute
• Tachypnea > 20 breaths/minute
• Site of infection Clinically evident focus of infection or positive blood cultures
• Organ dysfunction 1+ end organs with either dysfunction or inadequate perfusion or cerebral dysfunction
• Metabolic derangement Hypoxia–PaO2 < 75 mm Hg, ↑ plasma lactate/unexplained metabolic acidosis
• Fluid imbalance Oliguria–< 30 mL/hr
• WBC counts < 2.0 x 109/L; > 12.0 x 109/L–US: < 2000/mm3; > 12 000/mm3
Note: The confusing semantics of the terms sepsis, sepsis/septic syndrome, and septic shock are unlikely to be resolved in the forseeable future; the terms sepsis and septic syndrome are essentially interchangeable and would in part overlap with septicemia–the early components of a pernicious infectious cascade that has spilled into the circulation; the term septic shock is used when the process becomes virtually irreversible.

Primary stage signs/symptoms include a painless sore or sores at the site of infection.
Primary cutaneous cryptococcosis (PCC) differs from its secondary counterpart in that it occurs because of local inoculation of the fungus as opposed to dissemination from a distant site of infection.
While the closure of the only known site of infection is a positive development, there will be no let-up in the response program of intensive surveillance, testing and grower education.

In these situations, more neutrophils rush to the site of infection and damage healthy tissue rather than killing the bacteria.
Innate immunity basically translates to the response of neutrophils, macrophages, and lymphocytes that are resident in the respiratory pathways or migrate there in response to signals from the site of infection that a problem is brewing.
Then a spectrum of infectious diseases are described, organized by site of infection, with special discussion of childhood infections, history-taking and monitoring.
It also helps to remove the necrotic tissue debris and dead cells from the site of infection by breaking high molecular weight inflammatory exudate into smaller amino acid that are positively utilized by the body.
