What is Sepsis?

Sepsis is also known as blood poisoning and is usually caused by micro-organisms. Their presence triggers the immune system to overreact to an injury or infection. In normal circumstances the immune system fights infection, but there are occasions when it works overtime causing inflammation throughout the entire body damaging organs and tissues.

The precise reasons why this happens are not yet fully understood.

Sepsis can be difficult to diagnose and can start with flu-like symptoms or an upset stomach. Symptoms vary between children and adults.

Sepsis kills five people every hour in the UK.

For every patient presenting with symptoms, medical staff should have a high suspicion of Sepsis and ask themselves “Could this be Sepsis?”

There has been much media coverage surrounding the treatment of Sepsis. If left undiagnosed it can quickly result in life-threatening complications such multi organ failure which can quickly escalate to death. This has led to the “Think Sepsis” campaign.

Early diagnosis is critical in preventing injury and helping with the survival of the patient. If caught early enough, the condition can be treated with antibiotics.

How to spot Sepsis

The UK Sepsis Trust sets out helpful guidance on how to spot Sepsis in both adults and children.

According to the trust, each year in the UK, 25,000 children are affected by Sepsis and one in four of all Sepsis survivors suffer permanent, life-changing after-effects. The trust also reports five people die in the UK every hour as a result of Sepsis.
