This is a one minute journal club-ish on Sepsis Deaths.
This is not medical advice.
Read the FREE article for yourself and do not trust me.
Hat tip to the authors.
This article was published in 2020 in the Lancet but is still relevant.
Almost 49 million cases of sepsis were recorded in 2017.
It is estimated that there were 11 million sepsis related deaths that year.
Take a second to process this number. 11 million.
19.7% of all global deaths are secondary to sepsis.
Our brains cannot solely focus on you-know-what that has occupied our lives over the last two years.
The strategies we investigate in clinical research should be as inexpensive as possible.
After all, the areas hardest hit by sepsis are those in blue.
Those areas will not be able to afford the expensive therapeutics yet to be discovered.
There is still a lot to be learned.
We can definitely do better.
After all, saving lives is our life mission.

How to Support My Work
My efforts are at no cost to you and I would like to keep it that way. You have to look at ads on this website, listen to them on my podcast and YouTube content. Thanks for bearing with me. You could also support my work by clicking on my Amazon Affiliate links prior to ordering things off of Amazon.
For example, if you want to learn more about Mechanical Ventilation, I recommend starting off with The Ventilator Book by Will Owens. If you click on that link, a window for Amazon will open up and I will earn between a 1-3% commission at no expense to you. The fun thing is that if you order anything else on Amazon, I will earn that amount off of your shopping cart even if you do not purchase the book. Pretty cool, right? In 2021, Amazon Affiliates helped me pay for the hosting of my website, LLC fees, and Netflix.
