Offering a global, multidisciplinary perspective on this life-threatening medical emergency, The Sepsis Codex provides a concise yet comprehensive look at a complex topic. Nearly 20% of global deaths are attributed to sepsis annually, nearly half of which are in children under the age of five, with low-resource settings being disproportionately affected. A “one size fits all approach is not sufficient to meet individual patients’ needs, instead requiring a therapeutic approach that considers different ages, predisposing factors, genetic traits, and more. This cutting-edge resource brings you up to date with recent medical advances in this challenging area.
Covers pathophysiology, early detection, biomarkers and diagnosis, therapies, controversies, future research, the use of AI, professional organizations and public health in sepsis.
Includes chapters on sepsis in special populations such as in pregnant women, transplanted patients, and children.
Consolidates today's available information on this timely topic into a single, convenient resource.
