Quantitative Measurement of Monocyte Response to Infection for Early Sepsis Recognition in Emergency Department
As part of the innate immune response system, Monocytes are central in homeostasis and disease across infectious and inflammatory presentations. Monocyte Distribution Width (MDW) is a quantitative measure of variability in monocyte morphology. MDW has recently received regulatory clearance for aiding in the diagnosis of adult sepsis in Emergency Department and is available today with CBC-Diff results early in patients’ triage. Join Beckman Coulter’s ISLH 2021 workshop, where Dr. Czader (United States), and Dr. Morales (Spain), will discuss the role of monocyte morphology in clinical decision-making and present emerging evidence based on multicentric European clinical trials. Comparing MDW performance with procalcitonin and C-reactive protein, they will discuss how all these biomarkers can be implemented in real practice to improve sepsis detection and patient outcomes.
