What Is Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome (MODS)?

Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS), also known as multiorgan failure, is a disorder in which two or more organ systems are not working correctly, usually because of a complex cascade of events initiated by an illness, injury, or severe infection.

 MODS is a severe illness in which someone can die if the dysfunction is not treated immediately. Due to a high risk of death, people with MODS are typically cared for in an intensive care unit where healthcare providers can potentially reverse the organ damage.
