Point-of-care testing for sepsis in remote Australia and for First Nations peoples

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review

Abstract

In Australia, over 55,000 people are diagnosed with sepsis every year. More than one-quarter of sepsis cases result in death and almost half of all survivors are left with a disability or impaired function. Populations most at risk of sepsis mortality in Australia are the young, the old, and First Nations peoples (Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples). The disparity in excess sepsis risk is most evident in rural and remote locations and in northern Australia.
