Think Sepsis. Time Matters.

September is Sepsis Awareness Month. Get Ahead of Sepsis is a national effort to improve sepsis early suspicion and recognition and timely treatment, as well as prevent infections that could lead to sepsis.



September is Sepsis Awareness Month. A topic close to me, as I lost a close family member last October due to Sepsis. She went into the hospital for an unrelated and non-emergency medical procedure. She died two weeks later, in the hospital from Sepsis.

Although, the CDC states that Sepsis begins outside of the hospital for nearly 80% of patients. A CDC evaluation found 7 in 10 patients with sepsis had recently used health care services or had chronic diseases requiring frequent medical care.

Four types of infections are most often associated with sepsis: lung, urinary tract, skin, and gut.
