Four in 10 Adults Have Never Heard of Sepsis, One of the Deadliest Killers in the U.S., New Sepsis Alliance Survey Reveals
Date:9/9/2013

San Diego, California (PRWEB) September 09, 2013

Four in ten adult Americans have never heard of sepsis, one of the deadliest diseases, responsible for more deaths annually than breast, prostate, and lung cancers combined, according to the results of a recent sepsis awareness poll commissioned by Sepsis Alliance and conducted by Harris Interactive. The number of people who indicated they had heard of sepsis marked an increase of four percentage points from last year.

Sepsis Alliance commissioned Harris Interactive to conduct online polling in June 2013. Among over 2,500 U.S. adults, the survey found that younger Americans were significantly less likely to have heard the term “sepsis,” with 57 percent of U.S. adults ages 18-34 indicating that they had never heard of sepsis, (compared to 47% of those age 35-44, 39% of those age 45-54 and 36 percent of older Americans aged 55+). In addition, women were much more likely to have of sepsis, with 49 percent of women saying they have, compared to 38 percent of men confirming they had heard the term.

“While the trend for awareness is positive, our 2013 study confirms that greater recognition of sepsis is needed among all Americans, and particularly among younger adults,” said Thomas Heymann, Board President of Sepsis Alliance. “For there to be such disparity, not only among men and women, but also among younger versus older Americans, helps us identify the need for educational efforts going forward.”

Sometimes referred to as blood poisoning, sepsis is the body’s often-deadly response to infection. Sepsis kills 258,000 people every year in the United States. When spotted and treated early with fluids and antibiotics, thousands of lives could be saved both domestically and around the globe.
