PT – Recognising Sepsis in a child

Sepsis is a rare but serious life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to infection causes injury to its own tissues and organs (NICE, 2017). It is also known as blood poisoning or septicaemia.

Sepsis needs treatment in hospital straight away because it can get worse quickly. It is important to recognise the signs as early as possible.
