Review for Sepsis Alliance, San Diego, CA, USA
I developed sepsis in December 2017. I went into septic shock and had to be put into a medically induced coma. The medications that were used to stabilize my blood pressure caused me to lose blood flow to my extremities, and my right leg had to be amputated below the knee. When I was finally back home, I went online to learn more about the condition that cost me my leg and almost cost my life. I learned that I was lucky that the hospital where I was treated had a code sepsis protocol, and I was amazed to find out how many hospitals don't. Sepsis Alliance was a great resource for me to find out more about sepsis. They have so much information on their site, and they are fighting to get information about sepsis out to hospitals, doctors, first responders, and patients so that people can survive.
