Sepsis is a leading cause of death worldwide. Every year, more than 18 million people suffer from sepsis, and 1400 people die of sepsis every day. The Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines declared in 2004 pointed out the extremely high mortality rate of severe sepsis and septic shock and therefore emphasized the early recognition of sepsis and the beginning of broad-spectrum antibiotic treatment as early as possible to prevent deterioration of the patients condition. This early empirical therapy is necessary until the origins of sepsis become clear; however, it would be better to know the precise target of therapy before administration of antibiotics so that the target microorganism is not missed and growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria can be avoided.
