Are there alternative treatments for sepsis?

A Answers (1)

  • There are other treatments in addition to antibitotics, such as corticosteroids, or insulin to help stabilize the blood sugar level. Drotecogin alfa, a drug that stops inflammation and blood clots, increases chance of survival with a severe case of septic shock. Therapy, through ventilation machinery or intravenously inserted fluid, is also used as a treatment for those suffering from a serious case of sepsis.
