Peril of Infection

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
A frightening and often deadly affliction, sepsis is a result of the immune system overreacting to bacterial infection. This program thoroughly examines the cause of sepsis, its specific symptoms and effects, and the possibility of treatment and recovery if life support and antibiotics are administered in time. Describing how immunological defenses shift into overdrive to rid the blood stream and organs of invaders, the video illustrates the all-too-frequent results of the human body attacking itself: organ damage and, typically, system failure. Case studies of sepsis survival and expert commentary from physicians at major medical centers are also included.
