Introduction

Sepsis is an infection of the blood, it affects all organs of the body and can cause multiple organ failure and death' sepsis, if untreated quickly, poses a high risk of death to the patient, and rapid and appropriate treatment is vital to save the patients life.

The NHS Health Education, England tells us that

'there are an estimated 123,000 cases of sepsis per year in England, and around 36,800 associated deaths. In many cases however, sepsis is avoidable and treatable and early identification is key to successfully treating sepsis'. 

Globally this is an issue that requires everyone's attention and is vital learning to ensure rapid treatment for patient survival and best health outcomes.  However there are many preventative measures people can take to reduce their risk of developing sepsis but this is no guarantee.
