Sepsis awareness during Learning Disability Week
A useful video – ‘Sepsis information for people with a learning disability’ – has been produced for those that care for people with a learning disability, who may not be able to communicate or verbalise how they are feeling.
Featuring people with a learning disability, it highlights the main symptoms of sepsis, which include:
– Feeling very hot or very cold and shivering
– Having a very fast heart beat
– Breathing fast or feeling out of breath, even if you are sitting still
– Feeling sick or vomiting
– Feeling confused
– Fainting or collapsing
– Not able to have a wee or not going for a wee all day
