fl-septic-shock-test-photoB (GD) 3/05/12 Mike Woodward of Oakland Park, who lost both legs below the knees after suffering septic shock following a "botched" appendectomy at Holy Cross Hospital in Ft. Lauderdale in 1999. Sepsis, a potentially deadly bloodstream infection that kills 258,000 Americans a year and represents a quarter of all ICU cases, is a serious and stubborn problem for hospitals. At a time when the CDC says hospitalization rates for the infection more than doubled between 2000 and 2008, one Broward County hospital is using a test that allows for early detection -- critical in reversing sepsis' effects. Officials at Holy Cross Hospital say since offering the PCT blood test in March 2011, its mortality rate due to septic shock has been cut in half.Photo by Ginny Dixon, correspondent.
