Sepsis infection in children can have serious consequences. Sepsis is an inflammatory response caused by infection with bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc., which can lead to organ dysfunction and even life-threatening conditions.

Children with sepsis infection may exhibit a range of systemic symptoms, including but not limited to low body temperature, pale face, rapid breathing and heartbeat. In addition, there may be damage to the skin, with bleeding points, as well as vomiting, diarrhea or blood in the stool. Hepatomegaly and splenomegaly are also symptoms of sepsis in children that parents should pay particular attention to.

If a child is diagnosed with sepsis, immediate treatment is necessary. The treatment may include hospitalization and routine treatment. Hospitalization treatment may include fluid resuscitation (intravenous fluids), identification and elimination of the source of infection, use of antibiotics and vasoactive drugs, and glucocorticoid therapy. Routine treatment includes providing a comfortable environment for the child, observing the child's clinical symptoms, ensuring nutritional support, and maintaining cleanliness of the child's skin.
