Sepsis is the systemic inflammatory response to infection which can be caused by a myriad of diseases or injuries. Septic patients require extensive nursing care and offer many unique nursing challenges. While sepsis is poorly defined in veterinary medicine, the last 10 years has yielded numerous studies, committees and research on the subject. Understanding the pathophysiology of sepsis allows for better nursing care to be offered.
