Sepsis, colloquially known as blood poisoning, is a life-threatening systemic disease. In this case, a dysregulated reaction of the body to an infection leads to a restriction of the function of organ systems - sometimes with a fatal outcome. Despite advances in modern medicine, sepsis is still the most common cause of infection-related deaths worldwide.
In her lecture at the Bürgercampus of the TU Ilmenau, Prof. Dr. Dr. med. Sina Coldewey, Head of Clinical Anesthesiology at the University Hospital Jena, describes the clinical picture of sepsis in layman's terms. As a university professor at the Medical Faculty, Professor Coldewey has been working scientifically for many years to better understand infectious diseases and to improve treatment concepts for sepsis and other serious infectious diseases. In the lecture, she will explain how to recognize infections, what early signs of the disease sepsis are and how to diagnose and treat them.
