METHODS: We conducted a descriptive analysis using mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics’ (NCHS), Compressed Mortality File (CMF), which contains descriptive data on the age, race, sex, year and causes of all deaths in the US. We used this data set as it is the only one which aggregates US death incidence with regards to geographical distribution. We defined sepsis death as death attributed to an infection. The location of current Critical Care fellowships was obtained from the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) public data. We mapped this data using Google fusion tables and studied them in relation to deaths attributed to infection in the continental US, after running algorithms through the NCHS software, selecting deaths from infections, in age groups 20 years and older, in all races, and both sexes, with state wise charting of the data.
