SEPSIS KILLS

Sepsis is one of the leading causes of death in children. Many paediatric sepsis related deaths are preventable. It is widely acknowledged that sepsis can be a difficult diagnosis to make in children and infants. The SEPSIS KILLS Program has developed a number of paediatric tools and resources to assist clinicians in the early recognition, notification, escalation and initial management of sepsis.
