Are Antibiotics Successful in the Treatment of Sepsis?

Question: Are antibiotics successful in the treatment of sepsis?

Answer: When it comes to sepsis, it's all about timing. Antibiotics saved my life when I was in septicshock,  which has a mortality rate of about 50%. But had another few hours passed, no amount of antibiotics would have saved me. The earlier a person receives treatment, whichgenerally includes antibiotics, the better the chance is they'll make it through. Please help spread the word about sepsis. You never know whose life you might save!
