Septicemia is also known as sepsis. Septicemia occurs when the blood stream is heavily toxic or when there is a large amount of toxic bacteria. Sepsis can be caused from a result of wounds, injuries or using intravenous devices that become infected. The blood in the body now becomes poisonous and if not remedied septicemia becomes fatal. Sepsis can occur among bacterial, fungal or viral infections. It can also occur in people with weakened immune systems and as people become resistant to medications they take,the body develops bacteria that the medication no longer responds to. This is called drug resistant bacteria. Once sepsis occurs, it damages the vital organs in the body such as the heart and the brain. It also impairs the kidneys. With all of the damage that sepsis can cause, it is also important to know that sepsis or septicemia can cause blood clots. Developing sepsis and being treated for it immediately, so that there is not other damage to vital organs and does not require the patient to undergo more invasive procedures can cause more damage depending on the health of the patient once he or she is diagnosed with sepsis or septicemia. Problems with antibiotics that are ineffective in preventing many strains of infections and the fact that the patient may already be taking medications for diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure ect., also have to be considered to avoid the risk of going into sepsis shock. A person with sepsis may not be stable enough for surgery. The question or problem becomes what do physicians do to remove the bacteria, virus or fungus from the bloodstream without harming the body by giving the patient more medications or undergoing surgery? Ultraviolet or UV light technology or UV-C in specific is a germicidal light that is non invasive, in that to remedy the bloodstream of disease surgery is not required. UV-C light is efficient in it's ability to deactivate DNA bacteria and pathogens in order to eliminate and prevent the spread of disease such as sepsis. In the instance of a patient with septicemia, a catheter can be inserted in order to provide UV-C treatment to the bloodstream and the UV-C light will eliminate the harmful bacteria and viruses from the bloodstream and the patient will have been treated for sepsis without medication interruption or surgery; in addition to this UV-C has the ability to heal wounds. UV-C light for septicemia- now that's bright!
