Sepsis | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the infection?

Preventing or treating the initial infection can prevent sepsis. Not all infections lead to sepsis.

What are the long-term effects of the infection?

People with sepsis will either get rid of underlying infection or die. There are few long-term effects related to sepsis. In some cases, the brain or kidneys may be permanently damaged.

What are the risks to others?

Although sepsis is caused by infections, these infections are usually not contagious.
