Maternal Sepsis by Select Risk Factors, SPARCS: 2016-2018

The dataset contains counts, rates, and measures of association between select risk factors and administratively identified maternal sepsis among live births during the pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum windows between 2016 and 2018.

Maternal sepsis is a leading cause of maternal mortality in the United States and is associated with increased rates of preterm labor, preterm delivery and fetal infection and maternal chronic pain and fertility problems.

Live births were identified from administrative coding of SPARCS acute care hospital claims between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2018. Sepsis events were identified from SPARCS claims linked to these live birth events through a maternal identifier and occurring during pregnancy, delivery or within 42 days postpartum. Counts, rates, and measures of association are calculated within each of these thee windows separately.

Sepsis events are quantified for ‘Any Sepsis’ and ‘Severe Sepsis/Septic Shock’ (a subset of ‘Any Sepsis’).

Risk factors are captured using administrative coding from all SPARCS claims data available for each live birth during pregnancy or delivery, or from a linked birth certificate, when available.

Counts, rates, and measures of association are presented for each risk factor and maternal sepsis in the specified window for all eligible statewide live births between 2016 and 2018.
