Sepsis drugs

http://www.medicalook.com
Sepsis can usually be treated in the Intensive Care Wing with intensive broad spectrum antibiotics delivered intravenously. Testing will resume as the patient stabilizes to attempt to identify the source of the sepsis. Treating the initial infection is vital in treating the sepsis, although it is not uncommon for the initial infection to clear up while the patient is receiving intravenous broad spectrum high dose antibiotics. Any abscesses require draining or surgical removal. If intravenous lines, surgical drains, or surgical wounds are the source of the sepsis, immediate removal and repair of the site is required.
