Removal of a septic focus

The persistence of a septic focus is a direct pathway to multiple organ failure, since the continuous release of proinflammatory mediators will alter organ function. Hence the source of infection must be sought actively, identified early, and treated promptly and aggressively. Broad-spectrum antibiotics, based on a knowledge of likely pathogens and local resistance patterns, should be administered until a specific organism is identified. Whenever possible, the antibiotic spectrum should then be narrowed. Any septic focus must be drained and possible sources (e.g. urinary or intravenous catheters) removed or changed.
