Filetype[PDF-260.79 KB]

  • Alternative Title:
    Four ways to get ahead of sepsis
  • Description:
    Get ahead of sepsis : know the risks, spot the signs, act fast.

    Infections put you and your loved ones at risk for a life-threatening condition called sepsis.

    Sepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection. It is a medical emergency, and without timely treatment, it can rapidly cause tissue damage, organ failure, and death. Sepsis happens when an infection you already have — in your skin, lungs, urinary tract, or somewhere else — triggers a chain reaction throughout your body.

    1. Prevent infections

    2. Practice good hygiene

    3. Know the symptoms

    4. Act fast

    Always remember, sepsis is a medical emergency. Time matters.
