in sepsis there is negative nitrogen balance, means excretion of nitrogen is more than uptake so, requirement of nitrogen should increase.
moreover in sepsis there is fever
During sepsis what does not occur:
A) Increase in oxygen requirement
B) Increase in nitrogen requirement
D) Increase in body temperature
Sepsis and surgery cause a negative nitrogen balance. Hence the breakdown/excretion exceeds the uptake. After uncomplicated surgery negative nitrogen balance persists for 5-7 days. However, in sepsis this trend continues for weeks together.
