History not suggestive or link is missing in Histo
Thanks for your query.
is a generalized infection of the body which is usually the result of dissemination from a focus of infection. Or it can be a dissemination from the dormant bacteria which are part of body but remain inactive due to body immunity. These can become active and because of an immuno-compromised condition, proliferate and produce symptoms which are not produced in immuno-competent people.
There must be some preceding symptoms and a few hours of low body temperature is not suggestive of sepsis in an otherwise healthy adult male. A short duration stomach discomfort
can also not be taken as suggestive of sepsis. A simple hypertension
does not make one prone to sepsis.
The doctor in the ER must have made the diagnosis on some blood tests of must have come across some finding in examination of the patient. The blood tests of patient will show either a raised TLC
or a decreased TLC along with few other signs and blood culture
will give an idea about the organism involved.
If it indeed is an established sepsis, the patient definitely needs an Intensive care admission and aggressive management with antibiotics and supportive care.
Wish him early recovery and good health.
