Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham


Welcome to this Dentaljuce module 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 module shows you what tests you must do, how to use a flowchart to categorise the risk of sepsis, and what to do next.
