According to the NHS, the management of Sepsis involves three tests and treatments.
These are known as the ‘sepsis six’:
- taking blood cultures – to discover what bacteria is causing the Sepsis
- taking a blood sample – to determine how severe the case is
- monitoring your urine output – to assess severity and kidney function
- administering antibiotics
- providing fluid intravenously
- giving oxygen
This course of action should be administered within an hour of a diagnosis of Sepsis.
