Dr Paul Morgan is a consultant in Intensive Care and Sepsis Lead for the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, based at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. His TEDx talk will cover what sepsis is, how it affects people and how survivors are often left with a variety of medium-to-long-term health problems that can be life-changing.
Not everyone with sepsis will die but not everyone with sepsis can have their life saved. The idea Paul shares is that by raising awareness of sepsis to health professionals and the public alike, fewer people will die unnecessarily from sepsis and that sepsis survivors suffer fewer post-sepsis health problems and can access the help they need.
