  • 中超在线直播观看:Dr. Jonathan Perlin: 270,000 Americans die annually from this strange disease – Here’s how to protect yourself

    Sepsis is a medical emergency that must be treated just as aggressively as a heart attack or a stroke. It is an overwhelming response to infection that turns the body’s immune system against itself, and as we’ve seen in stories that have made global headlines, it can lead to tissue damage, severe organ failure, even death. There are approximately 1.5 million cases in the U.S. each year.

    How can you protect yourself and your loved ones from this horrifying illness? Knowing the symptoms is a vital first step. And yet, a recent survey found that only 12 percent of adults can identify sepsis symptoms – even as the risk of dying from it increases by up to 8 percent every hour it goes undiagnosed.

    MISSOURI MOM BATTLING DEADLY SEPSIS INFECTION LOSES ALL 10 TOES, HAND, SEVERAL FINGERS

    The Sepsis Alliance uses TIME as an acronym to help identify the warning signs:

    Temperature – Higher or lower than normal

    Infection – May have signs and symptoms of infection

    Mental decline – Confused, sleepy, difficult to rouse

    Extremely ill – “I feel like I might die”; severe pain or discomfort

    Septic shock can occur when the body is no longer able to maintain an adequate blood flow to supply oxygen to vital organs.

    Each year, sepsis is responsible for the death of approximately 270,000 Americans – making it more deadly than breast cancer, prostate cancer and AIDS combined. The very young, the elderly and people with chronic illness or impaired immune systems are at greatest risk, but the syndrome can occur in healthy individuals as well. In all cases, early recognition and aggressive treatment are essential to survival.

    Thankfully, new technology now allows health care providers new options when it comes to treating sepsis.

    For instance, at HCA Healthcare, we are now using computer algorithms to detect sepsis up to 18 hours earlier than even the best clinicians would be able to, using a technology called SPOT (Sepsis Prediction and Optimization of Therapy).

    Powered by artificial intelligence and analysis of data points from millions of previous hospitalizations, SPOT recognizes combinations of data that indicate onset of sepsis. It continuously monitors vital signs, lab results, nursing reports and other patient data. And when patterns consistent with sepsis occur, SPOT alerts clinicians to evaluate patients and, as appropriate, begin treatment immediately.

    Since our introduction of SPOT technology in 2018, it has been used to monitor more than 2.5 million patients across 164 hospitals. It is our most powerful tool in the battle against sepsis, and along with evidence-based clinical interventions, has helped us save an estimated 8,000 lives over the last five years.

    Remember, sepsis is a medical emergency, and must be treated as aggressively as a heart attack or stroke.

    Now, thanks to the powerful combination of electronic health records and artificial intelligence, technology like SPOT is able to do just that. That’s a win for health care – but more importantly, it’s a win for every patient who lives to see a new year, celebrate an anniversary or welcome a child into the world.

    Simply put, that’s why I went into medicine.
