Sepsis occurs when an infection overwhelms the body and can lead to systemic organ dysfunction and death. The pathophysiology of sepsis is complex; disruption of the immune system causes unbalanced inflammatory and coagulation responses. Mortality rates of sepsis remain high, but continued research in the area of sepsis pathophysiology will likely lead to improved treatment modalities and better patient outcomes.
