With early diagnosis being vital in the treatment of sepsis, Sepsis Alliance shares how they are working to raise awareness of the condition’s associated symptoms and risks.
Sepsis Alliance, the first and leading sepsis organisation in the United States, seeks to save lives and reduce suffering by improving sepsis awareness and care. Sepsis, the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection, affects an estimated 49 million people worldwide each year. More than 1.7 million people in the US are diagnosed with sepsis each year and 270,000 of those people die. Sepsis is also the most common complication observed in severe cases of COVID-19.
