In this episode of the HSE Talking Health and Wellbeing Podcast, we talk to Dr. Michael O’Dwyer and Aisling O’Rourke about Sepsis, a critical health issue. Aisling shares the heart-wrenching story of her father’s battle with Sepsis, emphasising the need for awareness and timely recognition of its symptoms. Dr. O’Dwyer, the HSE Sepsis Programme’s Clinical Lead, educates listeners on the dangers of Sepsis and the urgency of early intervention, particularly for at-risk groups. The episode serves as a poignant reminder of the role caregivers play in patient advocacy and the life-saving importance of asking, “Could this be Sepsis?”.
