Long time: depend where and how it had affected the other systems. simple positive blood culture with no systemic effect,which mean the patient is stable and not in septic shock on life support system.need to be treated for at least ten days or until the blood is no longer positive and no longer have any fever,then it will be followed by two weeks of oral antibiotic. the other kind is a life threatening.
