Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham


Welcome to this Dentaljuce course on sepsis, one of the world’s biggest killers. World-wide, 20% of all deaths are due to sepsis.

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition caused by the body’s reaction to an infection.

Normally, a person’s immune system will attack and try to destroy the micro-organisms that cause an infection. It does this by releasing bioactive chemicals. Occasionally, when the micro-organisms have entered the blood stream, these chemicals are released in such huge amounts that they attack the person’s whole body as well as the original infection. This is known as sepsis.

If sepsis is identified early enough, treatment is usually successful. This course shows you what tests you must do in Dental Practice, how to use a flowchart to categorise the risk of sepsis, and what to do next.

If you're not yet a member of Dentaljuce, we highly recommend you to join and gain access to our comprehensive course on Sepsis.

This course, along with over 100 other CPD courses, is available for a single membership payment.

I was skeptical about AI, but Dr. Aiden has proven its worth. It really is like having a personal tutor.
