    Background on Sepsis

    Sepsis is a killer. Every year, it kills 270,000 people in the United States – 1 every 2 minutes, more than prostate cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS combined. It is the 3rd leading cause of death overall and the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals.

    Some Facts:

    As many as 92% of all sepsis cases originate in the community.

    Mortality rates are high. Mortality from sepsis increases by as much as 8% for every hour that treatment is delayed. As many as 80% of sepsis deaths could be prevented with rapid diagnosis and treatment.

    Sepsis affects over 30 million people worldwide each year and is the largest killer of children – more than 3 million each year.

    More than 1.7 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with sepsis each year – 1 every 20 seconds and the incidence is rising 8% every year.

    Every day, there is an average of 38 amputations in the U.S. as the result of sepsis.

    Sepsis is the #1 cause of death in hospitals.

    Sepsis is the #1 cost of hospitalization in the U.S. consuming more than $27 billion each year.

    Sepsis is the #1 cause for readmissions to the hospital costing more than $2 billion each year.

    Executive Summary

    ! Sepsis awareness has significantly increased to 65% over 58% in 2017. This means more than 16 million more adults are aware of sepsis in 2018 compared to 2017.

    ! Females are more likely to have heard the term than males (68% vs. 63%).

    ! Fewer than half (48%) of adults say that an infection is a symptom of sepsis.

    !More than a third (36%) say they do not know the symptoms of sepsis, while a majority of adults (94%) say they can identify the symptoms of stroke, even though sepsis is twice as common and twice as deadly as stroke.

    ! Only 33% are at least very aware of sepsis, while 72% are at least very aware of stroke.

    ! Only 12% correctly identify all four sepsis symptoms, while 25% correctly identify all four stroke symptoms.

    ! Nearly three quarters (73%) of adults strongly agree that you need to seek urgent medical attention if you see signs of stroke, yet only half (50%) strongly agree that you need to if you see signs of sepsis.
