What Is Sepsis?
Sepsis is a potentially fatal illness which, in severe cases, causes damage to your body’s organs. The symptoms are caused by your body’s immune system reacting to an infection. Typically, when you have an infection, your body endeavours to localise the infection, white blood cells and the natural process of inflammation help to stop the infection from spreading.
The severity of the infection and of course the strength of your immune system are both factors that contribute to the likelihood of the infection spreading. If your body is unable to contain the infection to a localised area, your immune system may cause widespread inflammation, which in turn, can cause tissue damage and impede blood flow. Oxygenated blood flow is of course critical for the proper functioning of your organs, with it impeded there is an increased risk of organ failure.
But How Did I Get Sepsis Whilst In Hospital?
If you contract an infection whilst in hospital or indeed arrive at hospital with one, it can trigger Sepsis. Many, seemingly commonplace, infections can trigger Sepsis including pneumonia, appendicitis, meningitis and kidney infections. There is of course always a risk of infections following surgery, but ultimately, however and wherever you contract the infection, the health care professionals tasked with your care have a duty to detect, diagnose and treat your infection. Delayed detection or diagnosis or indeed inadequate treatment could be the basis for making a medical negligence claim for Sepsis.
