September is Sepsis Awareness month. I had no idea what sepsis was until 4 years ago and it's only within the past week that I've read up on the statistics.
44,000 people die in the UK each year from sepsis, usually because it is not detected early enough for the antibiotics to take effect.
Here are the signs to look out for, never be afraid to ask 'is it sepsis?'. Perhaps if I'd known the signs, I could have helped my sister #sepsis #silentkiller #sepsisawareness #sepsisuk
