“The Global Sepsis Alliance wishes to thank Radiometer and every single person that contributed to this donation. We hope the way this money was raised, collectively by the company and its employees, inspires other companies to join the global fight against sepsis as well. Every cent raised will be put towards implementing the demands of the WHO Resolution on Sepsis and raising awareness for sepsis worldwide,” said Marvin Zick, General Manager of the Global Sepsis Alliance.
The donation is part of Radiometer’s continued commitment to improve global healthcare and to help save lives – the essence of their mission and vision.
“At Radiometer, we understand the seriousness of sepsis, the importance of early intervention and the necessity of understanding the dangers and signs of the condition. Through our solutions and by raising awareness of sepsis, we want to help ensure that more people survive this potentially fatal condition and to empower caregivers to make fast and reliable decisions,” says Henrik Schimmell, President of Radiometer.
Throughout September, Radiometer helped raise awareness of sepsis with a month-long internal and external awareness campaign. As part of this campaign, they are a sponsor of this year’s World Sepsis Day. World Sepsis Day is held on September 13 every year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against sepsis.

Each year, 26 to 30 million people are affected by sepsis, and between six and nine million people die from the disease. While very few people outside of the medical field are aware of the disease, sepsis is the number one cause of preventable deaths worldwide. To learn more about sepsis watch this short video.
