Episode Description

Niranjan "Tex" Kissoon , MD Mark Ansermino, MD and Matthew Wiens, MD join us to discuss the multi-levels of Sepsis,. and educate us on the What, How, and Global Burden of Sepsis. The Global Burden of Disease Sepsis Report published in January 2020 estimated that 49 million patients suffer sepsis every year, with 11 million of those dying. This burden is significantly higher than the number of lives lost to cancer or coronary disease. Sepsis can affect anyone as a consequence of infection, but globally young children suffer most. sepsis remains one of the most common and least-recognized illnesses in both the developed and developing world. Sepsis arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It may lead to shock, multiple organ failure, disability and death, especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. September has been designated Sepsis Awareness Month and September 13th is Sepsis Awareness Day. For more information please visit: https://www.global-sepsis-alliance.org and https://www.sepsis.org
