What is the difference between septicemia, sepsis, and bacteremia?


I heard that septicemia is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. I was wondering what the difference between septicemia, sepsis, and bacteremia is? Is one of them blood poisoning? If that's the case, is it possible to have that condition without any microbial activity going on, like if you get certain non-microbial toxic agents in your body? Is one of the three a blood infection? What's the difference between all three of them?

Thanks!

These are nesting categories.

Sepsis is the presence of a pathogenic microorganism (bacteria, virus, parasite, or fungus) or its toxin somewhere in the body, whether that be a tissues of some organ, a body fluid (blood, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, amniotic fluid) or a body cavity. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sepsis

Septicemia is specific for infection of the blood by any pathological organism. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/septicemia

Bacteremia is infection of the blood by a bacteria. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bacteremia

So, bacteremia is a type of septicemia, and septicemia is a type of sepsis.  (+ info)

What is Septicemia and what antibiotics should be used to treat it,and what dosages?


My uncle has b cell non hodgkins lymphoma,and now the doctors say my uncle has septicemia,so now I'm looking for any information about the condition.
----------

It is a condition of all the above. Antibiotics to be given depends on what type of bacteria your uncle has. Also, it depends on if those bacteria are susceptible to the selection of antibiotics offered. Some strains of bacteria are resistant to many of antibiotics.

Non Hodgkin's lymphoma also influences the treatment of your uncle. Depending on the type, antibiotics might not even be able to help your uncle.

A lymphoma is a disease of the immune system. So if your uncle are making white blood cells that does not work, it would be hard to fight an infection. Most antibiotics are made to stop the growth of bacteria and your immune system does the rest.

But you should really speak to the MD about your concerns.

Hope i helped.  (+ info)

What's the difference between septicemia And acinetobacter?


My uncle died a week ago with septicemia nos, whatever that is. It's on the hospital records. He was in a hospital that had a problem with acinetobacter baumannii. Okay both of the symptoms are just about the same. He was in intensive care at the hospital for 4 weeks. The day he died it was on the t.v. about this acinetobacter. I need alot of help. PLEASE any info.
----------

Septicemia is the term for a medical condition where bacteria and their toxins are spread throughout the bloodstream. This is referred to by some as "blood poisoning".

Acinetobacter is not a disease at all, but is the name of a particular bacteria. Acinetobacter is becoming very difficult in a lot of hospitals where it is becoming resistant to lots of antibiotics. It is particularly common in ICU patients.

I think what may have been going on was that he had septicemia caused by the spread of acinetobacter throughout the bloodstream. They may not be two unrelated things in his case.

I am sorry to hear about your loss, and I hope that I have been helpful. If you want more information, you might try to figure out if the hospital has an infectious disease specialist (probably a pharmacist) that could answer some more questions for you.  (+ info)

How long to recover from a hemorrhagic contusion?


I had suffered a hemorrhagic contusion to my left frontal and parietal lobes in a skiing accident.

How long does it take to recover completely from such an injury?

I'm 51 years old.

Thanks
I did see a neurosurgeon and he said I was lucky as it did not involve any "vital" area of the brain. I'm almost 99% recovered already 4 weeks after the accident so I guess I was very lucky. If I had no helmet on I would be dead. Back of my helmet was crushed!
----------

have you seen a neurosurgeon? Every case is so different, without an examination and appropriate MRI, MRA and neuropsych eval it is impossible to gauge yor progress.  (+ info)

If a person has had previous Septicemia 5 years previous are they still contagious?

Once the bacterial infection was cleared that person of course returned to normal.  (+ info)
