World Sepsis Day

World Sepsis Day is held on 13 September every year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against sepsis.

What is sepsis?
Sepsis is a life-threatening reaction to an infection and anyone with an infection could develop sepsis. Sepsis is a medical emergency that requires rapid diagnosis and treatment in hospital, and it is important that this is accessed as soon as possible.

Sepsis can be difficult to spot as there can be other causes that present similar signs and symptoms and lack of awareness in individuals in suspecting sepsis. Sepsis can be especially hard to recognize in babies and young children, people with dementia, people with a learning disability and people who have difficulty in communication.

Saving from sepsis

Everyone can play a part in preventing infections that could potentially lead to sepsis. Here are some tips to help you and your loved ones:
Washing your hands regularly
Adequate cleaning of the environment
Keeping up to date with vaccinations including children, pregnant women, and older people
Following instructions that are provided with any antibiotics and complete the course, even if we feel better.
Clean and care for any wounds you may have.
Sepsis is a serious health condition caused by viral, bacterial, and fungal infections in the body, and can affect people of any age. Different types of infections like UTI, lung infection, skin infection, and GIT infections may lead to Sepsis, so we must be extra careful in these.

Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
