Sepsis or septic shock is a type of condition/infection which represents one of the leading post-surgical or post-traumatic complications. Sepsis is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in intensive care units worldwide. Also, sepsis is the leading cause of death in non-coronary patients, with pulmonary sepsis accounting for most cases as it relates to lung dysfunction.
