Hello dongri and Welcome -

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I can not imagine how difficult this is for you.

According to this information on septicemia , it is caused by a bacterial or other infection.The first step for treatment is a quick diagnosis and an antibiotic is given to attack many different types of bacteria. Once the actual/specific bacteria or infection is identified, the doctors can switch to another specific antibiotic to treat the sepsis.

I hope this answers your question and please let us know if would like more information.

For additional support during this difficult time, check out our Grief and Loss Community .

Take Care,
Elizabeth
