Treatment of septicemia

Septicemia that has started to affect your organs or tissue function is a medical emergency. It must be treated at a hospital. Your treatment will depend on several factors, including: your age your overall health the extent of your condition your tolerance for certain medications Antibiotics are used to treat the bacterial infection that’s causing septicemia. There isn’t typically enough time to figure out the type of bacteria. Initial treatment will usually use “broad-spectrum” antibiotics. These are designed to work against a wide range of bacteria at once. A more focused antibiotic may be used if the specific bacteria is identified. You may get fluids and other medications intravenously to maintain your blood pressure or to prevent blood clots from forming. You may also get oxygen through a mask or ventilator if you experience breathing issues as a result of septicemia
