Diagnosis is directed to the detection of the infectious origin that is causing the symptoms, using blood and urine tests. Also, if there are difficulties in identifying the primary infection, your doctor may order imaging studies such as MRI, X-rays, ultrasound, and CT scans.
A timely and intensive treatment is recommended to increase the chances of recovery:
- Antibiotics: broad spectrum drug combinations are used to try to attack the infection as hard as possible.
- Vasopressors: these drugs are administered when blood pressure has not reached the required level. It contracts blood vessels causing an increase in blood pressure.
- Saline solution.
In cases where abscesses or gangrenous tissues have formed, a surgical procedure will be necessary to remove them and prevent the infection from spreading.
