Info & Booking Enquiry

One in five deaths around the world is caused by sepsis, also known as blood poisoning.  A report published by the University of Washington shows the most comprehensive analysis of the condition.

The report estimates 11 million people a year are dying from sepsis – more than are killed by cancer.  The researchers at the University of Washington said the “alarming” figures were double previous estimates.  Most cases were in poor and middle income countries, but even wealthier nations are dealing with sepsis.

There are an estimated 123,000 cases of sepsis per year in England alone with approximately 36,800 associated deaths. In many cases, sepsis is avoidable and can be treated with early identification being key to successfully treating sepsis.

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 know or understand, it attacks our body’s own tissues and organs. If not treated immediately, sepsis can result in multiple organ failure and death. With early diagnosis, it can be treated with antibiotics.
