ABSTRACT

Infections are a common health problem in people of different ages. Usually, the response given to them is suitable, and hence little treatment is needed. However, if the response to the infection is inadequate, it might lead to dysfunction of organs; this condition is known as sepsis. Bacteria, viruses, or fungi can cause sepsis, and at present, there is no specific treatment, its management focuses on containing the infection through source control and antibiotics plus organ function support. This paper reviewed the antibiotic management of patients with possible sepsis at emergency departments.
