CDC Sepsis Campaign

CDC’s Making Health Care Safer program is focusing on sepsis.  Sepsis  can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. It’s difficult to diagnose, happens quickly, and can be confused with other conditions early on.  Sepsis is a medical emergency.  Time matters.  When sepsis is quickly recognized and treated, lives are saved.  Healthcare providers are the critical link to preventing, recognizing, and treating sepsis.  For more information and resources on sepsis, see http://www.cdc.gov/vitalsigns/sepsis/index.html .
