Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to an infection that can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. Sepsis results from a localized infection, such as pneumonia, skin infection, or urinary tract infections.
With an estimated 30 million cases annually worldwide, and a mortality rate of 20%, more than 6 million people succumb to sepsis each year and sepsis should be considered a serious global health problem.
Where research and researchers meet the general public is a long standing event organized by Lund University Medical Faculty and Region Skåne. Every year shares a different medical topic with the general public. In 2018 SEBRA is proud to present on the topic of sepsis and antibiotic resistance.
Please join us November 6 (Malmö) and 7 (Lund)!
