Sepsis Awareness Month

Recurring event see all

September 1, 2022 September 30, 2022 CDT

Sepsis Awareness MonthĀ is observed in September. In 2011, Sepsis Alliance recognized that more attention could be drawn to sepsis and sepsis awareness if there were a specific month dedicated to the cause.

Sepsis Awareness MonthĀ allows for organizations and facilities to organize activities for their staff, and for Sepsis Alliance supporters to make a concentrated effort to spread information about sepsis.

Despite these great strides in awareness, sepsis remains a public health crisis, taking a life every two minutes in the U.S. Sepsis takes more lives than opioid overdoses, breast cancer, and prostate cancer combined. The key to saving lives is TIME. As many as 80% of sepsis deaths could be prevented with rapid diagnosis and treatment. This is why Sepsis Alliance created Sepsis: Itā€™s About T.I.M.E. TM, a public awareness campaign to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of sepsis and the urgent need to seek medical treatment when signs are present.

Central to the campaign is T.I.M.E., an acronym that stands for:
T:Ā TemperatureĀ that’s abnormal
I: Signs of anĀ infection
M:Ā MentalĀ decline
E: FeelingĀ extremely ill
