Organ failure

This is an umbrella project; if possible, please add Geni profiles to one of the related projects. DO ADD profiles to "this" project where the specific organ that failed is not known.

Organ dysfunction is a condition where an organ does not perform its expected function. Organ failure is organ dysfunction to such a degree that normal homeostasis cannot be maintained without external clinical intervention.

It is not a diagnosis. It can be classified by the cause, but when the cause is not known, it can also be classified by whether the onset is chronic or acute.

Multiple organ failure can be associated with Sepsis and is often fatal.
