I KNOW SEPSIS 2017
This year Bristol Serviced Lettings would like to dedicate spare time to bring awareness of SEPSIS to all loved ones, all our friends and our customers.
This life threatening condition kills more people than breast cancer, bowel cancer and prostate cancer put together!
We were suddenly effected by this not widely known disease last year, when one of our team members was hospitalized but thankfully it was cough on time and did no drastic damage in one’s life….but many people do not survive and have life-long disabilities after.
Please help us raise awareness!!! Promise to tell at least one more person about this horrific ‘flue-like’ condition that can end in death!
Just ask ” Could it be SEPSIS”?
Sepsis is not a well know condition but kills more people a year in UK than bowel cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer put together.
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injuries its own tissues and organs. Patients with the most severe forms of sepsis are up to five times more likely to die than patients with a heart attach or stroke.
Sepsis will feel like ‘flu’. Infections which can five rise to sepsis are common, and include lung infections (pneumonia), water infections, infections in wounds, bites or the joints, and problems like burst ulcers.If you have, or have recently had a fever and develop any of these symptoms CAL 999:
Slurred speech or confusion
Extreme Shivering or muscle pain
Passing no urine (in 18 hours a day)
‘I know something’s badly wrong with me’
Skin that’s mottled, bluish or very pale.
Caught early, the outlook is good for the vast majority of patients. It is crucial not to delay seeking medical attention.
