According to a research letter published in the August 2019 issue of JAMA Pediatrics, treating severe sepsis in children in the United States cost $7.31 billion in 2016 alone, up significantly from the estimated $4.8 billion it cost in 2005. The 2016 amount is 12 times the median cost of all other hospitalizations for children, including for treating cancers and traumas.
