This month - September 13th 2019 - is the 8th World Sepsis Day, a day spent raising awareness of this potentially fatal illness. It affects between 27 and 30 million people worldwide every year, with a sepsis-related death taking place every 3.5 seconds.

Sepsis is a serious complication of an infection and can be fatal. World Sepsis Day is about raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of sepsis so that medical treatment can be sought immediately. The NHS provide some essential advice about sepsis including a useful video featuring Dr Ranj Singh.
