Septicemia is a very dangerous condition. Let's find out why it occurs and how to intervene.
When we talk about septicemia, we mean an extremely exaggerated immune response in the presence of an infection. A problem that occurs when chemicals released by the immune system lead to systemic inflammation. Often silent (at least initially), this condition can be very dangerous and even fatal. This is why it is extremely important to learn to recognize it in time and act quickly from the very first symptoms.
Septicemia, meaning and symptoms
