Sepsis is a serious complication of an infection.
Without quick treatment, sepsis can lead to multiple organ failure and death.
Sepsis can be triggered by an infection in any part of the body. The most common sites of infection leading to sepsis are the lungs, urinary tract, tummy (abdomen) and pelvis.
Sepsis may develop when you're already in hospital. For example, you're more likely to develop sepsis if:
- you've recently had surgery
- you've had a urinary catheter fitted
- you have to stay in hospital for a long time
