Carol Voderman health: The deadly condition which left the star ‘six hours from death’

What are the symptoms to look out for

The Mayo Clinic said: “To be diagnosed with sepsis, you must have probable or confirmed infection and all of the following signs including a change in mental status, a first number in a blood pressure reading or a respiratory rate higher than or equal to 22 breaths a minute.

“Sepsis can progress to septic shock when certain changes in the circulatory system, the body’s cells and how the body uses energy become more abnormal. Septic shock is more likely to cause death than sepsis is.”
