Sepsis

On 15th December a new sepsis awareness campaign was launched, supported by UK Sepsis Trust, to raise awareness of the key symptoms of sepsis amongst parents of children aged 0-4.

Acting quickly could save a child’s life. The campaign encourages parents of children aged 0-4 to go to A&E immediately or call 999 if they have any of the following symptoms:

  •  Looks mottled, bluish or pale
  •  Is very lethargic or difficult to wake
  •  Feels abnormally cold to touch
  •  Is breathing very fast
  •  Has a rash that does not fade when you press it
  •  Has a fit or convulsion
