Raising Awareness On World Sepsis Day: A Kare Plus Nurse’s Vital Role in Safeguarding Care Clients From Sepsis
Wednesday, September 13th, 2023 | Uncategorized
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the immune system overreacts to an infection, leading to organ failure or loss of life if not treated promptly.
World Sepsis Day is usually recognised on the 13th of September each year as an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against Sepsis.
According to the UK Sepsis Trust, around 245,000 cases of Sepsis occur in the UK each year.
Here at Kare Plus, all of our nurses are trained in recognising the symptoms of sepsis in their care clients and will act quickly to get them immediate medical attention.
Recognising the early signs and symptoms of Sepsis is vital and can greatly improve global survival rates.
The sooner Sepsis is identified and treated, the better the outcome for patients.
The Symptoms of Sepsis Include:
- Extreme shivering
- Rapid breathing
- Low blood pressure
- Lack of urine output
In addition to the symptoms listed above, other signs of sepsis can be cold hands and feet, a high fever and confusion.
Sepsis is a medical emergency and if you suspect someone has it, you should get them immediate medical attention.
Sepsis is a serious health condition and everyone has a part to play in recognising its effects.
As an established healthcare company, we urge everyone to educate themselves on the signs and symptoms of sepsis so they can act fast and potentially save a life.
Kare Plus fully supports the World Sepsis Day awareness campaign and has put together this quick guide with the symptoms.
