Sepsis – still valid economic and epidemiological problem

The recognition of sepsis is connected with potentially bad prognosis, high mortality rate and high costs of the therapy. A new definition of sepsis was introduced in 2016. The main role of dysfunction of organs in the course of infection, the potential threat for life and necessity to perform quick diagnosis result from this definition. The review of worldwide literature on sepsis epidemiology and therapy costs was done in the current article. It was observed that the data concerning incidence of sepsis in Polish hospitals are incomplete, related to single observations, and in most cases they come from retrospective analyses. Therefore, the nation-wide registry comprising the data of the sepsis cases should be established.

Key words: sepsis, morbidity, mortality
