How long does fussiness associated with sepsis last?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jason Adler
23 years experience in Pediatric Critical Care
Sepsis: Fussiness in a child with sepsis is a non-specific symptom. In a child who does not possess the verbal skills yet to explain how they feel, this in part is their way of letting us know they do not feel well. Duration of fussiness might vary based upon underlying cause of sepsis, the organ systems involved, the child's underlying disposition, and the environmental stressors.
