Spotting and treating sepsis

01 February 2016

Sepsis (blood poisoning) is a very serious condition which can be life-threatening or lead to permanent complications if it’s not spotted and treated quickly. Symptoms are often non-specific but can include:

  • Not passing urine all day
  • Extreme shivering or muscle pain
  • Mottled or discoloured skin

If you or someone you are with has any of these symptoms, especially if they have also recently felt unwell, seek medical advice straight away.
