Think Sepsis - Talk Sepsis - Treat Sepsis

Sepsis is a serious complication of an infection.

Without quick treatment, sepsis can lead to multiple organ failure and death.

Although sepsis is often referred to as either blood poisoning or septicaemia, these terms refer to the invasion of bacteria into the bloodstream.

Sepsis can affect multiple organs or the entire body, even without blood poisoning or septicaemia.

Sepsis can also be caused by viral or fungal infections, although bacterial infections are by far the most common cause.

In England every year there is...

123,000 cases of sepsis

37,000 deaths

70% of these cases start in the community.
