In this episode Sepsis will be defined by three Healthcare Clinicians and one Clinician — a Sepsis survivor.  According to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics estimates that, based upon information collected for billing purposes, the number of times people were in the hospital with sepsis or septicemia (another word for sepsis) increased from 621,000 in the year 2000 to 1,141,000 in 2008. Between 28 and 50 percent of people who get sepsis die.

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection.  If sepsis progresses to septic shock, blood pressure drops dramatically, which may lead to death. Anyone can develop sepsis, but it’s most common and most dangerous in older adults or those with weakened immune systems. Early treatment of sepsis improves chances for survival.

MORE ABOUT OUR GUESTS:

Carl Flatley, DDS, MSD
On April 30, 2002, Carl Flatley’s life changed. It was the day his daughter
Erin died from Septic shock, something Dr. Flatley, a retired Endodontist,had never heard of.
After Erin’s death, Dr. Flatley learned everything he could about sepsis and he was
astounded at what he – and millions of other Americans – didn’t know about the condition.
He was shocked to learn that sepsis killed well over 200,000 people in the U.S. every year
and affected so many more survivors. In 2004, Dr. Flatley founded the American Sepsis Alliance,which in 2007,became Sepsis Alliance. He made it his mission that sepsis would become as well  known as cancer, diabetes, and other illnesses, and that as few people as possible would  get sepsis, let alone die from it. His unending devotion to Erin’s memory has had a  significant impact on many people.
