THE STATE OF SEPSIS TODAY
Every year, severe sepsis strikes more than a million Americans1. It’s been estimated that between 28 and 50 percent of these people die2 – far more than the number of U.S. deaths from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined.
Sepsis Leads to Prolonged Stay in ICU, Complex Therapies, and Higher Costs. It is the most expensive condition in hospitals today, costing the industry $20 Billion Dollars in 2011.
