13 September is observed as ‘World Sepsis Day’ and brings to fore the avoidable circumstances caused due to lack of awareness amongst the people.
A life-threatening disease as it is called, Sepsis can occur due to infections in the lung, urinary tract, gut, skin etc . These infections are caused by viruses, bacteria or fungi.
Symptoms of sepsis
Some of the symptoms to watch out for include increased heart rate or rapid breathing, decreased blood pressure , inability to urinate, pale skin, fever, chills, pain, confusion, disorientation. The biggest risk is in the older age group where they might dismiss it as an age-related problem and may give way to complications.

Diagnosis and Treatment
One should not take any antibiotics without the being advised by the doctor. They should also be taken in correct quantity. If the viruses become resistant, then our body will be left with no weapon. Staying up to date with vaccinations is equally important. One must not dismiss burns , skin wounds or cuts and should also take treatment for possible infections.
Most of the people with mild sepsis recover. The mortality rate is high with those going into septic shock.
Although Sepsis is a serious condition, early intervention can save lives and complications.
