Sepsis (previously termed Septicaemia)
Posted on : 13-September-2013

It is reported that 37000 people die of sepsis every year in UK. This should be considered a tragedy, as unlike many other diseases sepsis can often be cured leaving no residual symptoms. Symptoms and signs can often baffle an inexperienced doctor.
