Blood Test 'Detects Sepsis in Hours'
Early Studies at King's College London suggest that a new test could allow sepsis diagnoses to be made within 2 hours, rather than the current tests which can take around 2 days. This could prove significant in protecting patients from poor hospital treatment and care.
Sepsis is a potentially fatal condition which is classed as a medical emergency in NHS guidelines.
