Sespis / ER Nightmare

    My mum was admitted to the ICU with sepsis. They used those pads to shock her heart last night after 5 liters of fluid didn’t have any impact and the Adenosine made her pass out. Put her heart into A-fib. Now giving her Heprin. And norepinephrine through central line. Vancomycin and zosyn. Iv arterial line to monitor blood pressure. Fluids they gave her caused fluid in her lungs. Lungs look junky. Catheter to monitor urine. Kidneys are injured.

    Worst of all, her spirits are low and she fears she might never recover. I have never seen her in so much despair.

    I read that IV vit c, b1, hydrocortisone, and thiamime can reduce the symptoms of Sespis. I am also aware that the hospital environment is deadly. Should I try to pull her out?

    Any rec greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    We have a blog on sepsis in Patreon. Read it. It is part of your membership. Tells me her redox is horrendous.

    Thanks for referring me to blog. Wondering why she cannot eat or drink anything. A sip of water makes her nauseous to the point of the throwing up.

    Remember how CRON data operate when mitochondria are toxic.

    Yes I figured that was the case however the info hits differently coming from a neurosurgeon rather than a daughter. Should I request iv hydration and if so how many liters? Her kidney are shot. Thank goodness Strawberry Fields is directly across the street from Lenox Hill to help to regain my sanity.

    That has to be decided by those who care for her who know all the variables.
