In treating sepsis, The first hour can be critical and the First 24 can be decisive.

Sepsis can be extremely difficult to diagnose because its primary symptoms mimic the symptoms of several other critical care conditions, including myocardial infarction, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism and other high-morbidity conditions.
