Inflammatix Sponsored Presentation: How Immune-response Testing can Improve Sepsis Outcomes

Session Description:

Quickly identifying whether a patient has an infection, and if that infection is likely to progress to sepsis, are critical to the evaluation of patients in the emergency department, where minutes matter. Diagnostics play a key role in the ED clinician’s toolkit. However, current tools overly rely on measuring bacteremia, thereby missing early windows for intervention, as the majority of pathogens that cause infection are not circulating in the blood. We need better solutions in the ED that improve patient outcomes. In this webinar, we will characterize the challenges of identifying sepsis in the ED and discuss how measuring the patient’s immune response to pathogens may represent a better approach.
