Story

Anyone who knows me knows my world was turned upside down almost 3 years ago when my nan passed away. Christine (My nan) was a fun loving go getter with a love for life. She was the fun grandmother that anyone would love. In the last few months of my nans life she spent weeks/months in hospital, with an amazing team of hospital staff and nurses. The last time my nan went into hospital she had an infection, unlike many others she had had she was not to fight this one off and it turned out to be sepsis. In the end this is what took my nans life. She was taken into icu on a Friday night and passed away on the Sunday when this dreadful infection had shut her organs down. I didn't know what sepsis was until my nan had it. This is not spoken about enough and by no means are we informed enough on how serious this can be. Since her passing though it seems to be that I hear it all the time.

Do you know what sepsis is? Maybe you should just know some facts and signs to always keep an eye for yourself and loved ones.

Sepsis is the leading cause of death in ICU. Sepsis can arise unpredictably and progress rapidly. The immune response to infection leads to widespread inflammation, which can cause blood clots and leaky vessels. This impairs blood flow, damaging organs by depriving them of oxygen and nutrients.

Do you know the signs of sepsis ?

Sepsis

Symptoms of sepsis include:

a fever above 101ºF or a temperature below 96.8ºF

heart rate higher than 90 beats per minute

breathing rate higher than 20 breaths per minute

probable or confirmed infection

Severe sepsis

Severe sepsis occurs when there’s organ failure. You must have one or more of the following signs to be diagnosed with severe sepsis:

patches of discolored skin

decreased urination

changes in mental ability

low platelet (blood clotting cells) count

problems breathing

abnormal heart functions

chills due to fall in body temperature

unconsciousness

extreme weakness

I'm raising money to give to uk sepsis trust charity by doing a skydive August 11th. Anyone who's interested in sponsoring me it would be greatly appreciated, thank you for reading!!

Thank you.
