She had a sepsis for the third time but was rejected in the emergency room
Annika Sandberg recognizes the symptoms of sepsis, an infection that can quickly become fatal. She had it twice before when she sought emergency room care in Malmö this winter with a high fever. Although the Skåne Region introduced a "septicemia alarm", it was sent home.
"If you feel very sick in a way that you do not recognize, seek care quickly." It is one of the advice of Annika Sandberg for those who suspect they have suffered from sepsis, acute bacterial infection.
"I talked about having an early sepsis, asking them to make a quick correction that might show that. But the nurse did not think I looked so sick, she says about that early morning of January.
