a life-threatening condition in which bacteria multiply in the blood and produce toxic materials; commonly known as blood poisoning; now also known as systemic inflammatory response syndrome.
systemic disease caused by the multiplication of microorganisms in the ciculating blood; formerly called "blood poisoning"[close window
The presence of bacteria in the blood circulation, accompanied by related clinical signs of disease.
"The body's reaction to viruses or bacteria in the blood."
disease throughout the body associated with disease-causing organisms or the toxins they produce in the blood.
a disease caused by bacteria growing in the blood (see Ailments).
presence of toxins or disease-causing bacteria in blood; also called blood poisoning
Acute generalized infection from virus or bacteria ("blood poisoning").
A condition in which an infecting microorganisms (pathogens) rapidly multiply in the bloodstream. Septicemia is used synonymously with bacteremia, and was once commonly called blood poisoning. This is a negative prognostic sign, suggesting that the host may be losing its battle with the infecting agent.
The presence of microorganisms and their associated poisons in blood (commonly called blood poisoning). If the microorganisms are bacteria, the condition is bacteremia.
invasion of the bloodstream by virulent microorganisms from a focus of infection
occurs when bacteremia results in systemic infection
Disease in many parts of the body caused by the spread of microorganisms and their toxins via the circulating blood; formerly called "blood poisoning"
The Condition"...It may precede or coincide with infections of the bone, central nervous system or other tissues; it can rapidly lead to septic shock and death, being associated with organisms such as meningococci that can lead to shock, adrenal collapse and disseminated..."
A bacterial infection of the blood stream that spreads throughout the body.
The spread of an infectious agent throughout the body by means of the blood stream.
The systemic disease associated with sepsis. Blood poisoning.
blood poisoning; the presence of living bacteria in the bloodstream.
A disease caused by the release of pathogenic organisms into the bloodstream from an infection. Also called "Blood poisoning".
Systemic disease associated with the presence and persistence of pathogenic microorganisms or their toxins in the blood; blood poisoning.
the physiological response to the presenceof bacteria in the blood. Symptoms include increased cardiac and respiratory rates, and fluctuations in body temperature. See also septic shock.
Blood poisoning, especially in which microorganisms and their toxins enter the bloodstream.
a bacterial infection that spreads and travels through the blood to other organs
A morbid condition caused by the multiplication of microorganisms in the blood; toxins are produced. See bacteremia.
Systemic (bodywide) illness with toxicity due to invasion of the bloodstream by virulent bacteria coming from a local seat of infection. The symptoms of chills, fever and exhaustion are caused by the bacteria and substances they produce. The disorder is treated with massive doses of antibiotics. Also known as blood poisoning. See the entire definition of Septicemia
A term referring to the spread of microorganisms usually bacteria through the blood circulation.
The Condition"...rapidly progress to shock with decreased body temperature (hypothermia), falling blood pressure, confusion or other changes in the mental status, and clotting abnormalities evidenced by hemorrhagic lesions in the skin..."
Disease caused by the spread of bacteria and their toxins in the bloodstream. Also called blood poisoning.
Bacteria multiplying in the bloodstream.
The Condition"Septicemia is a serious, rapidly progressing, life-threatening infection that can arise secondary to localized infections of the respiratory, genitourinary or gastrointestinal tract, or from the skin..."
sepp-TiH-see-mee-yuh) A poisoning or contamination of the blood. The blood becomes septic and spreads bacteria throughout the body. This can cause death and often does.
