Sponsor Innovation Webinar – No Time To Waste: Early Sepsis Detection using Monocyte Distribution Width (MDW). Nursing Perspective on Novel Sepsis Biomarker
December 3 @ 2:00 pm
Date: December 3, 2020
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT
Presented by Beckman Coulter
Sepsis is a prevalent, deadly, yet often elusive condition in the Emergency Departments world-wide. Diagnosing sepsis in patients presenting with mild and non-specific initial symptoms challenges both clinical gestalt and institutional protocols, as use of biomarkers for early sepsis detection has been controversial and their utilization varies widely across countries and institutions. In this session, Angela D. Craig, APN, M.S., CCNS from Cookeville Regional Medical Center and Dustin Pierce, RN, BSN, CPHQ from University of Kansas Hospital will introduce and discuss a novel hematologic parameter, Monocyte Distribution Width (MDW), recently cleared in US for sepsis detection in Emergency Department. They will review current clinical evidence for MDW based on results of two large multicenter studies and will discuss the practical implications of these results to the US standards of sepsis care.
