Blood culture: 30 days of sepsis is a long time and your doctor should have a good idea where the source of your infection is through your history, physical exam and radiologic studies. Cultures of specimen such as blood, sputum, urine or other fluids should be done to determine what bacteria or fungus or virus to treat with the right antibiotic.
