Severe sepsis, a critical illness that most often afflicts victims of initially n-fatal illnesses or injuries, is the third-most common killer in the United States. In Fatal Sequence , neurosurgeon, immulogist, and clinical investigator, Kevin J. Tracey offers a chronicle, both scientific and human, using cases he personally experienced to illustrate the clinical nightmare of organ failure that typifies the disease. In clear, accessible language, Tracey explains how the brain, which rmally restrains the immune system and protects the patient, can fail during severe sepsis - allowing the immune system to indiscriminately kill rmal cells along with foreign microbes. Fatal Sequence is a compelling documentation of an all-too-common situation: doctors fighting to prevent patients' deaths at the hands of complications from injuries and illnesses that should never be fatal in the first place.
Kevin J. Tracey, MD, is chief executive officer of the Feinstein Institute at North Shore-LIJ Health System in Manhasset, New York. He is a leader in inflammation research and the study of the way the immune system responds to infection and injury.
