Septic Shock with Multiple Amputations: A Survivor's Story

0 Просмотры
In September 2018, Katy Grainger was a healthy and active 52-year-old mother of two living on the island of Kauai. She had no idea that a small purple blister on the side of her thumb would be the precursor to a week fighting for her life in the ICU with septic shock, ARDS, multiple organ failure, and DIC.

With her family by her side, Katy spent an additional three weeks in the hospital with doctors desperately trying to save her hands and feet. Her hands were saved, but one month after the onset of sepsis, Katy was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle to have both of her feet and all, but three fingertips amputated. Two years later Katy shares her remarkable story as well as the aftermath and lessons learned from this medical emergency.
