World Sepsis Day 2023

September is Sepsis Awareness Month, and September 13th 2023, is World Sepsis Day, as it is every year. And as a sepsis survivor myself, I want to promote it as much as possible. So, people recognise the signs, and we can save as many lives as possible.

In 2018, I was lucky enough that the wonderful doctors and nurses in St Richards Hospital, Chichester, recognised the signs of sepsis and saved my life. I was in a coma and in intensive care for a month. And it was touch and go for a while. But I’m here now to tell the tale. It takes 5 minutes to learn the signs of sepsis, which are;

Slurred speech or confusion

Extreme shivering or muscle pain, fever

Passing no urine all-day

Severe breathlessness

It feels like you’re going to die

Skin mottled or discolored

Learn The Signs

Please learn the signs. It’s really important as it could save a life. 1 in 5 people don’t know the signs. Don’t be that person. That’s why I’m promoting Sepsis Awareness Month to encourage as many people as possible to get Sepsis Savvy this September. I was lucky; let’s promote World Sepsis Day, learn the symptoms, and spread the word as much as possible so others can be as lucky as I was.
