Share this page

Monday 11 September 2017

The Infection Prevention & Control Team (IPACT) are joining forces with the other Crown Dependencies in raising awareness of sepsis and taking part in World Sepsis Day on 13 September 2017.

Sepsis is a complication caused by the bodies overwhelming and life threatening response to an infection which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure and death.

Sepsis is a medical emergency just like a heart attack or stroke. Caught early the outlook is good for the vast majority of patients, but it is vital not to delay seeking medical attention.

Kay Bull, Lead Nurse Infection Prevention, advises:

'It is important that people recognise the signs and symptoms of sepsis. If you suspect that someone is suffering from sepsis then you should seek immediate medical attention'

The symptoms of sepsis may develop quickly and can include:

Dr Nicola Brink, Medical Officer of Health added:

'Sepsis occurs most often in those over 65 years or less than one year old and those who have a weakened immune system or chronic medical conditions e.g. diabetes.'

IPACT will be using social media on World Sepsis Day to help raise awareness. They are asking people who have been touched by sepsis to join them in promoting awareness.
