Sepsis Awareness Month
Sepsis Alliance has designated September as Sepsis Awareness Month since 2011. Since 2011, Sepsis Alliance has invited healthcare professionals, individuals from all fields of medicine, and businesses and organisations to raise awareness and save lives. This month is about spreading awareness about the signs and symptoms of sepsis to help people get the help they need quickly.
Sepsis can be a serious reaction to infection. Sepsis can be caused by any infection. However, bloodstream infections and kidney infections are the most common causes. Sometimes, it is called blood poisoning or even septicemia. This happens when your immune system overreacts to an infection and damages your organs and tissues. Sepsis is not something you can catch from someone else.
There are three levels of sepsis. There are three stages of sepsis: severe sepsis is, sepsis shock, and sepsis. Many people suffer from sepsis after undergoing a procedure. This is not always true.
Sepsis Awareness Month should be celebrated by being educated about the symptoms and what to watch out for. This could save a life.
There are many symptoms of sepsis. The following are some of the symptoms:
Sepsis is characterized by severe symptoms…
When there is an organ failure, severe sepsis can occur. These are some of the symptoms associated with severe sepsis.
Septic shock symptoms…
Septic shock symptoms include all the symptoms mentioned above. The individual may also experience very low blood pressure.
Sepsis education can save lives, it is not an exaggeration. Sepsis can be life-threatening. Sepsis can be mild or severe. The rate of recovery is higher in mild cases. There is a better chance of recovery if you are educated about the condition and spot any signs early.
Severe sepsis is a serious condition. Even those who do recover will be at greater risk for infection in the future. Septic shock and severe sepsis can cause complications. These can lead to the formation of blood clots that can prevent oxygen from reaching vital organs. This can lead to tissue death and organ failure.

Sepsis Awareness Month can be observed in many different ways. These are just a few of the suggestions we have…
Spread the word – Sepsis Awareness Month’s main goal is to raise awareness about the condition and the symptoms associated with it. We can all play a small part in this awareness campaign. Online, you can download infographics and handouts that can be downloaded to help people understand the condition better. Post messages to social media to educate your followers and friends about Sepsis.
Host an Event – Why not host your own September event to raise awareness about Sepsis? We have plenty of ideas for you if you are stuck. A 5k run or walk could be done to raise funds and awareness for Sepsis. You can all wear a Tshirt with Sepsis Awareness printed on it. You can host a small event on a smaller scale. Share your knowledge and invite people to contribute. You can organize many events to encourage people to participate, such as a cook-off or a yoga class at your local branch. You need to think of something fun that gets people involved and then make sure that you include donations and awareness so that it contributes to the awareness of Sepsis.
Sepsis Awareness Swag – You can get your Sepsis Awareness SwAG by visiting sepsis.org. They give away educational brochures and posters, as well as symptoms cards, posters, stickers, pins and ribbons that can be used to raise awareness about the condition.
