Sepsis is a life-threatening medical condition in which the body has a severe response to an infection. Sepsis can result in tissue damage, organ failure and death.
Sepsis can happen to anyone. People with chronic medical conditions, such as kidney disease, are at a higher risk of getting an infection, which can lead to sepsis.
Check out our webinar from earlier this year to learn more about the relationship of sepsis to kidney disease, the warning signs, risks, and ways to prevent sepsis.
