Abstract: Objective: To update the profile of patients attended with sepsis in specialised care centres in Spain, to analyse in-hospital mortality, disease management and costs between 2008 and 2017 -- Methods: Admission records registered between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2017 obtained from a Spanish National hospital discharge database for public and private hospitals. Centres are responsible for data codification, evaluation and confidentiality. The database is validated internally and is subjected to periodic audits. Files corresponding to patients with sepsis and septic shock were selected by means of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 9th version and 10th version codes. These criteria claimed 311,674 records of 288,211 patients. Direct medical costs of secondary healthcare include expenses derived from the admission: examination, medication, treatment and costs of nutrition, personnel, medical equipment and resources.
