Not much: The rate of death from sepsis has been relatively stable recently. The number of deaths has increased due to an increase in the population at risk.

Aging population: People are living longer, and there is a wave of aging baby boomers. This causes an increase in the numbers of the elderly, a group that is at increased risk of sepsis. Older people are less able to fight infections.
