Presented by Immunexpress
Time: 12:00 – 12:30 pm ET / 9:00 – 9:30 am PT
Description: In this webinar, Dr Roy Davis provides an overview of the current challenges of sepsis diagnosis and management, specifically those 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 will be covered along with its impact on diagnostic uncertainty.
Presented by NX Stage
Time: 1:00 – 1:30 pm ET / 10:00 – 10:30 am PT
Description: Sepsis-induced Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) occurs in 40%-50% of patients with sepsis, increasing their risk of mortality. In this insightful webinar, Dr. Charuhas Thakar will discuss sepsis-induced AKI and providing Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) care while in the ICU.
Coordinating Sepsis Care Across Your Hospital: Best Practices and Tools to Improve Sepsis Performance and Patient Care
Presented by Wolters Kluwer
Time: 2:00 – 2:30 pm ET / 11:00 – 11:30 am PT
Description: Hospital teams’ attempts to affect improvement in sepsis care continue to fall short in improving patient outcomes and performance. Today sepsis is still the leading cause of non-cardiac death in ICUs and the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in most general hospitals. Discover best practices for improving the adoption of sepsis protocols, leveraging key data elements to guide continuous improvement of your sepsis programs. We will explore how AI-powered surveillance empowers proactive management of patients at the bedside and enables sepsis coordinators to assist with real-time interventions to improve patient outcomes.
Presented by Roche
Time: 3:00 – 3:30 pm ET / 12:00 – 12:30 pm PT
Description: Procalcitonin (PCT) has been well established in clinical practice for the use among patients with lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) and bacterial infections, but there is a broader application with patients on antibiotics. Joseph Kuti, PharmD will share how the use of PCT has evolved within the Hartford HealthCare system to include the biomarker in the antibiotic management of COVID-19 patients. He will also discuss the operational pull-through of the biomarker across multidisciplinary teams that include the pharmacy.
Presented by Baxter
Time: 4:00 – 4:30 pm ET / 1:00 – 1:30 pm PT
Description: Join Baxter to learn about the importance of dynamic assessments of fluid responsiveness in sepsis and septic shock patients. Participants will be given the opportunity to participate in a case study utilizing preload assessments to guide treatment decisions.
