In recent years, healthcare professionals have come to accept that the recognition, diagnosis and immediate management of sepsis demand improvement. Sepsis is a spectrum of disease. In its least severe form, 1 in 10 sufferers may die. Severe sepsis claims around 1 in 3 patients lives, and in septic shock, the chances of survival are only 1 in 2. Not all, but a number of these deaths could be prevented by early recognition and immediate intervention using therapies that are widely available.
