The development of strategies that goals the reduction of mobidity and mortality of patients with sepsis for health promotion depends of the visibility of the variables that interfere in the establishment of the disease, in the epidemiological local context. The study of sepsis in important because its clinical-microbiological epidemiology is dynamic, depends, for example, of epidemiological factors. Patients with severe sepsis presented a reduction in their quality of life due to the cognitive impairment


Key-words: Sepsis, Epidemiological factors, Disease.
