One in five deaths globally is caused by sepsis or blood poisoning

According to the most comprehensive analysis of sepsis so far, sepsis is the cause of one in every five deaths worldwide. This condition is also called the spread of poison in the blood. According to research, 11 million people die every year because of this. That number is higher than cancer deaths.

Researchers from the University of Washington say the figures are alarmingly high. Most cases of sepsis occur in poor and middle-income countries, but this is also a problem for rich countries.

What is sepsis?

Sepsis is also known as the ‘hidden killer’ because it is very difficult to detect.

The disease is caused by excessive movement of our immune system or immune system. In this case, the system attacks other parts of the body, fighting off infections or germs.

As a result, various organs of the body stop functioning. Even if the patient escapes death, he or she is not fully cured and in some cases becomes disabled.

The most common causes of sepsis are diarrhea and lung diseases bacteria and viruses.

Why did the data increase?

Previous global estimates, which estimated five million deaths in 19 million cases of sepsis, were compiled based on information from a few western countries.

Recent research, which is published in the journal Lannister, is based on data collected from 195 countries, with 49 million cases of sepsis occurring worldwide each year.

According to the report, sepsis causes 11 million deaths. That is, sepsis is one of the causes of every five deaths worldwide.

Assistant Professor Christina Rudd says: ‘I have worked in rural Uganda and sepsis is a disease we see every day.

“That’s what my classmates, who have been treating patients in poorer countries, have to say. So I was not surprised by this report. But I did not expect it to be double the previous estimates. ‘

The good news is that since 1990 the incidence and mortality of the disease have decreased.

It is expected that estimating the seriousness of the situation will increase awareness and save more people’s lives.

Who is affected by this condition?

Eighty-five percent of the cases occur in low- and middle-income countries.

Most children are infected and four out of every 10 cases occur in children under the age of five.

But sepsis is also a challenge in a developing country like the UK, where the number of people affected is more than Spain, France, and Canada.

The United Kingdom kills 48,000 people every year.

What can be done about this?

Spice incidence can also be controlled by reducing the infection.

For this purpose, many countries will have to ensure access to drainage, clean water supply, and vaccines.

The second challenge is the early detection of patients with cysts so that their timely treatment can be initiated.

Early treatment with antibiotics and anti-viral drugs can also be useful in preventing it.
