        I live in Norfolk. I have been following this story for a while seems he is definitely on to something.

        I sent an article to one of my siblings a while back and said if I am septic send me to Norfolk General and find this doctor.

          question: uti's come before Sepsis in my situation.... So I wonder what effect or implication it has on preventing Sepsis from a uti or a related regimen to prevent uti's in the first place? Am I making any sense SCI-Nurse?

            I am not familiar with this physician or this protocol, but have sent an e-mail to a colleague who is an expert clinical nurse specialist in critical care and very familiar with standards for sepsis management.

            Dr. Marik is currently the Director Acute Respiratory Intensive Care Unit, Emory University Hospital, Atlanta. Emory is certainly considered a prestigious medical school. I did find a few articles published in reputable journals by Dr. Marik, abstracts can be seen below. Would be something to discuss with your infectious disease physician.

              I heard back from my CNS ICU colleague about this protocol:

              "Yes!! IV Ascorbic Acid is slowly being used in cases of severe sepsis! We have actually used it a handful of times here. It didn’t make it into the last Surviving Sepsis guidelines but I anticipate it appearing soon.


              We have also started using a new vasopressors as a 4th line in these cases as well. Angiotensin II is super expensive but has shown improvement in vital signs where we have been able to down titrate other vasopressors."

              Keep in mind that this protocol is not for prevention or treatment of infections, including UTI, but for treatment of sepsis (septicemia) that may result. It does not kill the causative bacteria; antibiotics are still needed for that.
