P830 Sepsis

Sepsis is not always easy to diagnose. When it is at an advanced stage with multiple abnormal physiological parameters it is relatively straightforward.

However by this stage it is associated with a very high mortality, so wherever possible healthcare professionals should aim to suspect sepsis at an early stage and initiate treatment promptly.

Both the CQC and the GDC expect dental practices to be able to adequately deal with patients who present with a dental infection that progresses to sepsis.
