In brief: 60%
It is very variable, with many factors playing a role.
Concomitant conditions and age are also major factors, though most studies have around a 40 percent mortality on average.

In brief: Variable
In the past almost 40% of people died from septic shock.
Recent advances in treatment can get this as low as 8% depending on the medical center.

In brief: Depends
The risk of death in sepsis depends on the number of organ systems that are impaired/affected.
A rough mortality estimate is 20 percent risk per organ system (ie if lung and kidney affected a rough death estimate would be 40 percent).
