1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Our aim is to explore which factors predict death in adult tropical Intensive care unit (ICU) patients with bacteria in the bloodstream (sepsis)? This will help us to create a prediction model that can be implemented by clinicians in tropical ICU units to treat patients better.
