Sepsis - the warning signs

Every year more than 50,000 people die after contracting sepsis. Many thousands more are left with disabilities and life-changing consequences.

Symptoms include:

  • slurred speech
  • extreme shivering or muscle pain
  • passing no urine in a day
  • severe breathlessness
  • "I feel like I might die"
  • skin mottled or discoloured

Symptoms in young children include:

  • looks mottled, bluish or pale
  • very lethargic or difficult to wake
  • abnormally cold to touch
  • breathing very fast
  • a rash that does not fade when you press it
  • a seizure or convulsion

With early diagnosis and the correct treatment, normally antibiotics, most people make a full recovery.
