Clinical presentation and diagnosis

The clinical presentation of sepsis varies and the rate of development of clinical manifestations may differ from patient to patient. Immunosuppressed patients, those with meningococcemia or Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections may progress to late sepsis more rapidly.

A physical examination should be performed rapidly and efficiently, with efforts directed toward uncovering the most likely cause of sepsis. The patient may not provide any medical history; therefore historical data may be obtained from medical records and/or family. The patient's medical condition, recent illnesses, infections, or activities may provide valuable information about the cause of sepsis.
