Marking Safety

“Sepsis is the most preventable cause of death” (1), and every hour it is not diagnosed will increase the probability of killing the patient by 7%; thus, recognising the early signs and symptoms is crucial. Severe sepsis is the leading cause of death in the noncoronary intensive care unit, with mortality rates between 30-50%.

According to Dr Adam Linder, “approximately one in five patients with sepsis who are admitted to hospital are at risk of developing severe sepsis within the first 24 hours” (2). Furthermore, it is also the biggest killer of children under five worldwide. Konrad Reinhart notes that 6 million babies from third-world countries and 10,000 of mothers die from the condition every year (1).
