Most People Don’t Know What Sepsis Is
September is Sepsis Awareness Month and part of the problem in fighting sepsis is that most people don’t know what it is, reports Westwood One. However, now there may be a faster way to detect it. Sepsis occurs when the body’s efforts to fight an infection trigger inflammation throughout the body. CEO of Immunexpress Rollie Carlson says early detection of sepsis is critical. The company worked to get the first FDA-approved test to diagnose sepsis in a few hours and he says they CAN do it even faster. For each hour delay in diagnosis, the risk of death increases by 8%.
