Bloodstream infection refers to a systemic infectious disease caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc., invading the bloodstream, which can lead to sepsis. Sepsis refers to life-threatening organ dysfunction resulting from a dysregulated host response to infection. It has the characteristics of high morbidity, a high disability rate, and a high mortality rate, and is one of the causes of in-hospital death in patients in the intensive care unit. The annual number of sepsis patients in China is estimated to be 5.68 million, and the mortality rate of severe sepsis patients is as high as 33.5%-48.7%. Early identification and appropriate operation can improve outcomes in patients with sepsis. The digital PCR detection method can accurately determine the type and load of pathogenic microorganism in the blood without the need for blood culture steps and plays an extremely critical role in the treatment of infection.
