Abstract

Septic shock is the most serious systemic manifestation of infection. Immediate intervention is required if the septic patients is to survive. However, the simple clinical presentation of sepsis involves many complex interactions between host and microbe. Understanding risk factors can aid in prevention. Understanding mediators can aid in treatment. Understanding the complex interactions between these elements may aid the critical care physician in improving survival of the septic patient.
