Thursday, 16th September 2021

Sepsis, a life-taking complication might be the direct outcome of the irrational usage of antibiotics. It can lead to more deaths by the year 2050. Sepsis happens to be a syndromic response that the body has towards some kind of infection and is often a common and final route to death from several infectious health disorders worldwide as per the World Health Organization.


A research paper was published in Lancet Journal in the year 2017 declaring that there had been 48.9 million sepsis cases and about 11 million sepsis-triggered deaths globally, accounting for nearly 20% of the net global deaths. The study further revealed that India comes to have a pretty higher sepsis-triggered demise rate, a life-taking organ failure response to various infections than the other South Asian countries of the globe except for Afghanistan.

“Sepsis will kill more people than cancer or heart attack by 2050 — it is going to be the biggest killer. Also in developing countries like India, multi-drug resistance due to gross overuse of antibiotics is probably causing higher mortality,” stated Yatin Mehta, Chairman of the Institute of Critical Care and Anaesthesiology, Medanta — The Medicity, Gurugram.


The reason for this is that sepsis could be induced by several common diseases like malaria, dengue, UTIs, and even diarrhea.
