Sepsis Awareness Month

Help us spread sepsis awareness!

We want everyone in your community to know the signs and symptoms of sepsis, so no one has to unnecessarily suffer from this life-threatening condition. Together we can make this happen. We have prepared a toolkit with everything you need to raise sepsis awareness among your patients. Review the tools below and let’s start spreading awareness!

About Sepsis

Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming response to infection, which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, amputations, and death. More than 1.7 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with sepsis each year – one every 20 seconds. In the United States, 270,000 people die of sepsis each year –  more than from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined. Despite its prevalence, less than 1% of Americans can correctly identify the most common symptoms of sepsis.

What are the signs and symptoms of sepsis? Our TIME acronym will help you remember.
