People reported that the Medical Examiner’s Office of Cook County was able to confirm the real cause of death of Chicago Fire star DuShon Monique Brown.

It was discovered that the actress died of sepsis, which is a peculiar blood infection that is caused by a blood whose origin is unidentified.

There are several factors that can contribute to sepsis, including obesity, hypertension and cardiovascular illness. It has been identified as one of the leading causes of death across hospitals.

Statistics reveal that globally over 30 million men, women, and children contract sepsis in a year. This condition is known to cause death in an average of 6 million infants and young children.

One of the tragic deaths among children was that of Rory Staunton, a 12-year-old child who was diagnosed with sepsis after a cut on his body was not cleaned. The wound became further infected when Rory had a fall during gym class.

Sepsis kills about 250,000 people in America every year, and this number surpasses the deaths caused by breast cancer, AIDS, and strokes put together.

These numbers are alarming given the fact that sepsis is completely preventable. It can also be treated to complete recovery, however, sepsis often goes undiagnosed due to a lack of awareness about its symptoms.

According to the website of Rory Staunton Foundation For Sepsis, the root cause of sepsis is often a form of bacterial infection that the body may contract through any type of wound or point of entry for bacteria.

It can also multiply if any area of the body is already infected, for instance, when the body contracts a urinary infection.

Sepsis is the result of the malfunction of the individual’s immune system, which fails to fight viral and bacterial attacks.

If such infections, wounds or inflammations go unchecked, they can ultimately lead to a fatal septic shock.
