Date: April 22, 2021
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT / 11:00 am – 12:00 PM PDT
This webinar will discuss the use of procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), and ferritin in pediatric clinical practice. Using PCT to assess bacterial infection and sepsis risk, explore using CRP and Ferritin to assess systemic inflammation risk in hospitalized children and to aid in assessing response to therapy in hospitalized children with sepsis. Learn about COVID-19, sepsis, and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). Apply knowledge learned in the review of a pediatric clinical case study.
