Sepsis is the terminal event for most infectious diseases and is now defined as life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. Sepsis is frequent, deathly and associated with high burden for patients, relatives and societies. Sepsis is underreported in diagnostic coding, making estimation difficult of the true burden of the disease in Denmark. It is likely, however, that sepsis contributes to 15% of all deaths in Denmark.
