WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
Sepsis, a silent killer, is a cause of significant mortality and morbidity. A lot of the patients develop sepsis secondary to infection from various causes. Early identification and appropriate treatment is the key in preventing deterioration.
The interventions are very basic and simple which are grouped together as the “Sepsis Six” – oxygen, blood cultures, antibiotics, fluids, lactate and haemoglobin and urine output monitoring.
Morriston Emergency Department (ED) embarked on a sepsis awareness campaign in ED in 2015 to promote early identification of sepsis using their sepsis screening tool in a busy Emergency Department. Since then they have grown and are currently involved in raising awareness amongst all hospital staff in Morriston Hospital along with the Sepsis Team. SeGMED group have successfully organised three Sepsis Awareness days as “drop in” sessions which have been very well received.
Their motto is “To inspire, educate and promote early recognition, treatment and management of sepsis”.
SeGMED (Sepsis Group Morriston Emergency Department) is proud to bring to you the sepsis 6k run in Wales.
The money raised from this event will go to Morriston Emergency Department and will be used for education, equipment and supporting further sepsis awareness days and events in hospital and in the community.
Please donate for this worthy cause and help them in their fight against sepsis.
