I have vomiting episodes that lead to systemic inflammatory response syndrome without sepsis. What causes sirs? Insufficient cortisol from adrenals?
Multifactorial: As a general rule, inflammatory conditions which produce the criteria necessary to term a condition sirs are induced by cytokine release, but there are many other possibilities. Generally not adrenal insufficiency. You seem to be trying to acquire a shorthand medical education. It is not that simple.See 2 more doctor answers

Caution advised: Because body temperature can be above 101 F (38.3 C) or below 96.8 F (36 C) in sepsis it may appear as if the symptoms are coming and going. However, this can be a life threatening condition and emergency medical attention is needed until the condition is resolved completely.
Symptoms....: Sepsis usually results in fever, body aches, malaise, headache, etc. Which are very general symptoms. Pneumonia usually results in cough with discolored sputum, chest pain that increases with deep breath, shortness of breath, fever/chills, malaise, etc. Pneumonia can also cause sepsis if the bacteria in the lungs gets into the blood.

Can you tell me in sepsis, how much bacteria needs to be in a person's blood before he start showing signs and symptoms?
Depends: We all get bacteria in our blood periodically, like after brushing teeth. Sepsis results when bacterial grow unchecked, produce chemical mediators, and the body may over-react. Bacteria do not need to be in blood to produce a picture of sepsis, e.g., massive activation of T-cells can cause picture of sepsis by exposure to superantigens.
May be sepsis: But could be something else. Please go to the nearest Emergency facility as soon as you can. Wish you well.See 1 more doctor answer
An elderly relative in hospital had a result of "Vacuolated Neutrophils +". I understand that this can be an early sign of sepsis. He's only had this test once but 6 days later he doesn't seem to be any worse. He hasn't been on Abx. I'm at a loss..
DiscussWithDoctors: While it is true that Vacuolated Neutrophils is an early sign of sepsis and due to massive bacterial growth and when these cells persist for more than 36 hours, the disease may be considered beyond control. And you are correct in saying that these patients are treated with Antibiotics. But we can not comment on this elderly relative of yours. You have to ask his treating doctors about his caseSee 1 more doctor answer
You give me fever: Just like the lyrics to the song fever, sepsis or infection that has spread to the blood steam, "gives you fever in the day and the night." medical abortion in a safe medical environment, does not often cause sepsis as it used to in the past in unsanitary conditions. Most medical abortion clinics also provide prophylactic (preventative) antibiotics at the time of the procedure or post-operatively.
