WHAT IS SEPSIS?
Sepsis (also known as blood poisoning) is the immune system’s overreaction to an infection or injury. Normally our immune system fights infection – but sometimes, for reasons we don’t yet understand, it attacks our body’s own organs and tissues. If not treated immediately, sepsis can result in organ failure and death. Yet with early diagnosis, it can be treated with antibiotics.
Sepsis can initially look like flu, gastroenteritis or a chest infection. There is no one sign, and symptoms present differently between adults and children.
25,000 children are affected by sepsis each year in the UK
1/4 of all sepsis survivors suffer permanent, life-changing after effects
5 people are killed by sepsis every hour in the UK
