Sepsis is a medical emergency, affecting one in every 23 hospital patients, is the 10th leading cause of death, and estimated to cost the US healthcare $17 billion with an average $50,000 thousand per case. The early signs are hard to spot for this life-threatening syndrome. Until a cure for sepsis is found, early detection is the surest hope for survival.
