One of the most devastating diseases in the world – Sepsis – is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths a day, but at the same time, it is one of the least recognised illnesses out there.

Reinhhart believes that raising awareness of Sepsis and getting people to recognise its symptoms is the key.

"Sepsis can be prevented," he says. "In the developing world it can be prevented by having better sanitation and hygiene processes, improved nutrition, clean water and promoting vaccinations in children.

"But the main way it can be prevented is if it is recognised early and the patient receives adequate measures of treatment. Treatments like antimicrobials and intravenous fluids must be initiated when the first signs of organ dysfunction appear. If they are given in the first few hours the survival rate may be up to 80 percent, but studies suggest with each hour of delay the mortality rate increases by five to eight percent."
