Abstract: Sepsis and previously “severe sepsis” are concepts used for denoting organ dysfunction caused by acute infection. Organ dysfunction correlates to increased case fatality rates. Sepsis is a common cause of hospitalization. Currently, sepsis is estimated to annually cause 30 million cases and 6 million deaths worldwide. The aims of this study were to explore the epidemiology, characteristics, and outcome of commu-nity onset severe sepsis in the adult population in Skaraborg, western Sweden. Dur... more
