Otogenny sepsis occurs as a complication of chronic (less acute purulent inflammation of the middle ear. The causative agent, as a rule, are aureus and hemolytic Streptococcus. Symptoms autogennaja sepsis - stunning chills with hectic temperature fluctuations 1-2 times at different hours of the day. The presence of purulent otitis, and signs of CNS damage due sinatambou, and when thrombosis jugular vein swelling and tenderness in the neck during the neurovascular bundle confirm the diagnosis of sepsis.
Rhinogenic sepsis is a complication of inflammatory diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses. The source of sepsis become infected blood clots cavernous sinuses and veins of the brain membranes. When thrombophlebitis cavernous sinuses are observed rapid growth of edema of the conjunctiva, exophthalmos, phlegmon orbits with sharp headaches, sometimes epileptic seizures.
The reason tonirovannogo sepsis is acute or chronic tonsillitis. The infection is localized often in Palatine, at least - and nasopharyngeal lingual tonsils, and regional lymph nodes.
In complicated postpartum period and miscarriages are created conditions for the development of obstetric-gynecologic sepsis, entrance gate which is the placental Playground of the uterus. Contribute to the development of sepsis forced operative intervention (caesarean section), blood loss, but especially unsafe abortion, which often leads to the development of extremely serious anaerobic sepsis. Obstetric-gynecologic sepsis important role belongs to the anaerobic and colibacillosis infection. The disease often accompanied by peritonitis (see). Obstetric-gynecologic sepsis, septicaemia occurs with severe symptoms purulent intoxication, hemolysis, high temperature (up to 40-41 degrees), frequent small pulse, blackout consciousness, somnolence.
When septicopyemia chills recur repeatedly throughout the day, the pulse is weak filling - up to 130-140 strikes in 1 min. From the mother veins infected blood clots the blood spread to distant organs. Frequent development of peritonitis (see), purulent metastatic lung lesions, development empiema pleura (see Pleurisy purulent), osteomyelitis (see). To the peculiarities of the post and especially post-abortion sepsis is the defeat of the endocardium - septic endocarditis.
Severe complications of unsafe abortion is anaerobic sepsis which often takes place gangrene placental site of the uterus with the destruction of the muscular layers of the uterus, its punching and the development of peritonitis. For anaerobic sepsis typical istericeski (yellowness) of the skin, bloody urine and brick-red blood plasma, due to the destruction of blood cells (hemolysis), renal failure.
Colibacillosis sepsis is often also a consequence of unsafe illegal abortions and proceeds by type of septicopyemia, often compounded by peritonitis, bacterial shock requiring immediate active protivosokovh activities.
Urosepsis characterized by the presence of the entrance gate of the urogenital tract. More often causative agent is E. coli. The infection is recorded during the study (ureteroscopy, cystoscopy) or treatment (bairovna the urethra). The cause of urosepsis may also be acute inflammatory process in any Department of urinary tract or sexual apparatus (kidneys, bladder, prostate and others). The disease begins abruptly with chills and high fever (40-41 degrees), face bluish, cyanotic lips. Forecast in cases timely diagnosis and early treatment more favourable.
Sepsis is the cause of several serious complications sharply worsen the prognosis of the disease and often leading to the death of patients. These include thromboembolism peripheral vessels of extremities with their necrosis (see Gangrene), heart attack internal organs (see a Heart attack), septic endocardit (see), pneumonia (see), decubitus (see), and so on
