Improving prevention, diagnosis and clinical management of Sepsis

Health Care Associated infections threaten the lives of millions of patients each year and contribute to the spread of antibiotic resistance.

Infections could develop into Sepsis. Sometimes called blood poisoning, sepsis is the body’s often deadly response to infection or injury. Sepsis kills and disables millions and requires early suspicion and rapid diagnostic and treatment for survival. It has been estimated that nearly 20 000 people die each day from sepsis worldwide and it is the cause of approximately half a million deaths in Europe each year.

The delayed identification and diagnoses result in high mortality. Early identification and diagnosis is crucial, and can result in sizeable reductions in mortality and morbility rates.
