The Challenge of Sepsis Diagnosis

• Sepsis is associated with more than 200,000 deaths in the U.S. and 11 million deaths worldwide each year.
• Sepsis patients require immediate treatment. However, they are diagnosed with techniques based on blood culture, a time-consuming process that takes days.
• As a result of this diagnostic delay, about 20% of patients are treated with inappropriate antibiotics while others are missed or receive delayed treatment.
