Sponsored Webinar: The Role of a Host Response Test in Early Identification and Appropriate Intervention for Sepsis

Webinar Description: 

Sponsored by Immunexpress

This event was recorded on 3/4/21 as part of the Sepsis Alliance Clinical Community Sponsor Innovation Day.

In this webinar, Dr. Roy Davis provides an overview of the current challenges of sepsis diagnosis and management, specifically related to early identification and appropriate intervention. He describes how the host immune response can be leveraged by including a gene expression assay as part of the Sepsis Clinical Toolset. The proposed role for this assay in the clinical workflow and sepsis program triage is covered along with its impact on diagnostic uncertainty.

Target Audience

Nurses, physician assistants, physicians, emergency responders, physical therapists, patient care assistants, and other healthcare staff

Learning Objectives

At the end of the presentation, the attendee should be able to:

  • Restate current challenges in diagnosis and management of sepsis;
  • Review a validated host response technology that differentiates sepsis from non-infectious systemic inflammation;
  • Identify the proposed role and clinical utility of this test in the sepsis clinical workflow.
