Globally, 49 million people suffer from sepsis each year. This leads to 11 millions deaths, which equates to 20% of deaths around the world.
Rapid detection for sepsis is crucial. Every hour this disease goes untreated, the chances of mortality go up by 8%.
To learn more about the disease, the difficulties of diagnosis and the importance of rapid detection; we sat down with Stefan Willemsen, former President and CEO of the US subsidiary of bioMerieux and board member of Sepsis Alliance.
We also spoke to Jonathon Romanowsky, co-founder of Inflammatix - who are one of the most innovative start-ups working within sepsis right now, applying bioinformatics and machine learning to their test.
