Dr. Martin Raff answered:

What is meant by gram positive bacteria and gram negative bacteria ?

Staining technique

Bacteria
Gram positive organisms have a high amount of material in their cell walls which retain gentian violet (a purple stain) on slides looked at under the microscope. Gram negative organisms have the gentian violet washed out when subjected to acid-alcohol and then they are restained with a red stain which renders them red under the microscope. It is one way of loosely classifying bacteria.

What is the endotoxin that causes the endotoxin or gram-negative shock of escherichia coli?

Wall component

Sepsis
It is mix of similar substances found in the walls of the bacteria, released as they die off and causing some of the problems in people with bugs like E coli loose in their blood. There's been some interest in medicines designed to remove it or prevent it from harming the body, but results have been so-so.

Dr. Ed Kaplan answered:

At the hospital, I had three blood cultures that contained gram-negative rods. What does this mean?

Sepsis

Cardiovascular_infections
It sounds like you had a severe blood infection. Gram negative rods can come from the bowel or from a urinary tract infection. Untreated it could be deadly! It sounds like you are OK now and likely will have no long term problems...just depends on the details!
