Table 1 Rates of mortality with sepsis in the US and correlations with antibiotic prescribing rates

From: The relation between prescribing of different antibiotics and rates of mortality with sepsis in US adults

 Mean (standard deviation)Linear correlation with rate of prescribing of all oral antibiotics
Rate of mortality with sepsis, ages 18-49y8.31 (2.98)0.66 (0.47,0.79)
Rate of mortality with sepsis, ages 50-64y55.8 (17.3)0.74 (0.59,0.84)
Rate of mortality with sepsis, ages 65-74y143.4 (36.5)0.77 (0.62,0.68)
Rate of mortality with sepsis, ages 75-84y330.8 (75.6)0.67 (0.48,0.80)
Rate of mortality with sepsis, ages 85 + y750 (161.9)0.59 (0.37,0.74)
  1. State-specific rates of mortality with sepsis (ICD-10 codes A40–41.xx present as either underlying or contributing causes on a death certificate) per 100,000 individuals in different age groups between 2014 and 2015 (mean + standard deviation), and the linear correlation between those rates and state-specific rates of outpatient prescribing of all oral antibiotics
