1G40/A30-A49 Sepsis without septic shock



Sepsis is caused by an infection of the bloodstream. The most common cause is bacteria, but viruses, fungi and parasites can also cause sepsis. Sepsis is most common in people who are already ill or have weakened immune systems.


Sepsis is diagnosed through a physical examination and laboratory tests, such as a complete blood count, blood cultures, and other tests to identify the cause of the infection.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnoses for sepsis include other infections, such as pneumonia or meningitis, as well as conditions such as hemolytic anemia, leukemia, and systemic lupus erythematosus.


Treatment for sepsis typically involves antibiotics, intravenous fluids, and close monitoring of vital signs. For severe cases, other treatments may be necessary, such as mechanical ventilation and dialysis.


The prognosis for sepsis depends on the severity of the condition. Most people recover with appropriate treatment, but some may develop complications such as organ failure, shock, or death.
