Sepsis Awareness

SepsisSepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection. Without timely treatment, sepsis can rapidly lead to tissue damage, organ failure and death. According to the CDC, over 1.5 million people in the US get sepsis and about 250,000 die from it each year. It is also a leading cause for hospital readmissions, yet 80% of sepsis cases originate outside of the hospital.
