Identifying and Treating Sepsis Symptoms
Early symptoms are frequently vague and may include nausea, vomiting, weakness, and diarrhea. In its early stages, it may be mistaken for influenza or another viral disease.
Also emphasized is the importance of saying those words out loud to your doctor or healthcare provider: “I AM CONCERNED ABOUT SEPSIS.” I wonder how effective that would be, but even if it wasn’t, I think it would be nice to have the reminder, especially in stressful situations.
Once again, early symptoms are vague and easy to overlook, making it all the more important to act quickly.
Symptoms, physical exam indicators, and laboratory tests can all help diagnose sepsis. After serving as a primary investigator on several sepsis clinical trials over the years, I’ve picked up a wealth of knowledge. Here are some tips I can provide from personal experience that you won’t find elsewhere.
The best piece of advice I can give is to have a real human count your breaths because hospital monitors are often incorrect when measuring respiratory rate. Temperatures are subject to the same rules. Some digital thermometers are completely inaccurate. Ask for a different method of taking your temperature if you suspect you have a fever and it is not being picked up.
I learnt that a decrease in urine output is one of the early and most sensitive markers of organ failure. The standard practice of physicians to order “I & Os,” or measurements of intake and output, once every eight hours is not sufficient.
To detect sepsis early and begin aggressive treatment, a urinary (Foley) catheter can be placed in the bladder and urine output measured hourly. (Post-publication addendum: there is debate over whether this is an appropriate usage of a Foley catheter.)
New criteria for sepsis were published in February in JAMA, and they highlight a change in mental status (confusion or decreased attentiveness) as a key indicator.
After their son Rory Staunton passed away from sepsis on April 1, 2012, his parents made a concerted effort to raise awareness through the Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention.
Rory’s Regulations was passed in New York to improve hospital communication with patients’ families and primary care physicians and to increase screening for and early diagnosis of sepsis. Maybe with his parents’ help, these will become commonplace.
Patty Duke’s death from sepsis is tragic, but hopefully it will bring much-needed attention to the disease and lead to fewer avoidable deaths. “Suspect sepsis,” advises the Sepsis Alliance. Rescue people!
