    I went to that website and it mentioned severe sepsis. I am confused if urosepsis is severe sepsis already or just sepsis and does not have any organ dysfunction? I know that there are classifications such as sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock. I was trying too look for a source that is specific to urosepsis, some sources i found talked about sepsis in general. Please help. Thanks

    What are you looking for exactly? I can check the literature for you. Are you looking for treatment, signs etc?

    Hi, this is for my careplan and i am tying to look for treatment, and also the drugs used and anything that would help me with the careplan. I found a website "emedicine" it talked about sepsis, bacterial. It seems that its hard to find info about just "sepsis" and not severe. I have to do a careplan and my instructor gave me lab values to also figure out what meds are to be used. Is there any resource specific to urosepsis or just sepsis. my intstructor told me to use "sepsis" as the primary diagnosis. Thanks.

    Regardless of the cause (urinary or other), if sepsis is your problem, then you need to look up sepsis info. Any sepsis is pretty severe. What lab values are abnormal? Can you post the problem?

    I found 101 meta analyses of sepsis treatment via Ovid, so the info is out there. Try searching "nursing" AND "sepsis" for a bunch of articles.
