10 Symptoms of a Sepsis Infection

Symptom #2: Fever

Sometimes, patients that have the same illness can display symptoms that are the complete opposite of the other. In cases of sepsis, for example, one patient can have a low temperature while another can have the opposite, fever. Indeed, fever is also a fairly common symptom among patients that have sepsis.

A fever is the body’s response to an infection as it tries to raise the temperature of the body. This is intended to make the body a difficult place for pathogens to survive, slowing or even killing them. While a fever in itself is nothing to be concerned about, the patient should be monitored to be sure it doesn’t rise to dangerous levels.
