Sepsis

HOW DO I SPOT SEPSIS?

Sepsis could occur as a result of any infection.  There is no one sign for sepsis.

Sepsis is a serious condition that can initially look like flu, gastroenteritis or a chest infection.

Seek medical help urgently if you develop any of the following:

Slurred speech or confusion

Extreme shivering or muscle pain

Passing no urine (in a day)

Severe breathlessness

It feels like your going to die

Skin mottled or discoloured
