Study: Blood infections play role in up to half of hospital deaths

Sepsis affects as many as 750,000 hospitalized patients in the U.S. each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many studies have examined the incidence and mortality of patients diagnosed with sepsis in the U.S. over time, but the study authors say that so far the impact of sepsis on overall hospital mortality has been poorly understood. more
