Do you know the signs of sepsis?

Did you know 40% of patients diagnosed with severe sepsis don't survive? I survived my 1st episode of severe sepsis and then my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and then 7th. I've overcome the odds. I lived through them, but most do not. Be aware.  Know the signs.  Know the symptoms.  I am dialysis strong.  Blessings http://www.ems1.com/mobile-healthcare/articles/2184293-Sepsis-10-things-you-need-to-know-to-save-lives
