Why did a patient's Hb fall with sepsis?

I was on the renal ward round with some other medical students and the one of the patient's Hb had fallen slightly and the consultant had mentioned that it was likely secondary to their infection. I didn't understand why this would be but didn't have the courage to ask either. Can anyone help me please?

Sepsis kills, antimicrobial resistance is real

Doshi highlights the danger of speeding new antibiotics to market without adequate testing.1 However, it is dangerous to question the threat from antimicrobial resistance, and such questions must not detract from the urgent need for new antimicrobial agents.

Emergency Medicine Literature of Note: Early Goal-Directed Waste For Sepsis

Hey Ryan, As always great work and post. I did want to make sure something was clarified from your post.....Looking at the results, a significant portion of “usual” care patients still get arterial catheters (62.2%), CVCs (50.9%), and vasopressors (46.6%). What this tells me is that our “usual” care has components of the EGDT algorithm engrained in it. Sick patients need fluids, antibiotics, and supportive therapies (i.e. Early critical care and resuscitation), but they don’t need CVP and SCVO2 monitoring to dictate their care. So there are still components of EGDT that should continue to be used, it is the invasive monitoring that is not really needed. Hope all is well.Salim
