Recovery After a Hospitalization for Sepsis - Life After Sepsis
Sepsis affects around 30 million people every year, with 6 to 9 million deaths. That means more than 21 million people survive sepsis every year. Many suffer from the consequences for the rest of their lives. Some of the consequences are obvious, such as missing limbs or organ dysfunction, like kidney failure. Some are less obvious, such as memory loss or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Our friends from the Sepsis Alliance and the Society of Critical Care Medicine have made a short 4-min video on life after sepsis - we highly recommend watching it!
