Sepsis

Sepsis (also known as blood poisoning) is the immune system's overreaction to an infection or injury. Normally our immune system fights infection,  but some mes, for reasons we don’t yet understand, it a acks our body's own organs and ssues. If not treated immediately, sepsis can result in organ failure and death. Yet with early diagnosis, it can be treated with antibiotics.
