Community Ed: Sepsis

Cancer, heart attack and stroke are well known medical conditions with potentially deadly results. Yet sepsis, a lesser-known risk, kills more Americans every year than heart attacks, breast cancer or prostate cancer.

Join nurse Lisa Bushong for an informative program about sepsis on Monday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. at UH Samaritan on Main. The program is part of University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center’s free community education series.

Sepsis is a serious illness that occurs when the body is overcome by infection. It can happen to anyone, at any time, from something as minor as a small cut to something as major as pneumonia. Sepsis is a medical emergency with treatment consisting of hospitalization to attack the infection, keep the vital organs working, and prevent a dangerous drop in blood pressure.

While this program is free and open to the public, please register by calling 419-207-2563.
