Webinar Supporting Patient Sepsis Journeys from the Lab
Watch Dr. Tobin Efferen and Hunter Bowen’s presentation on sepsis diagnosis and management highlighting the use of standardized laboratory and clinical operations in the context of one patient’s journey from initial assessment in the Emergency Department through treatment in the Intensive Care Unit to eventual discharge.
Infographic Solutions that Impact Sepsis Patient
With increasing frequency, UTIs caused by ESβL-producing Enterobacterales are seen in outpatients with no previous healthcare exposures.5 Learn more about how our MicroScan panels feature drugs recommended by IDSA* and the ECDC** to treat pyelonephritis and complicated urinary tract infections caused by ESBLs.
Providing Data to Drive Life-saving Decisions There’s large unmet clinical need for the early detection of sepsis. Innovative diagnostic solutions can provide valuable and actionable information to clinicians to aid in escalating and de-escalating patient care.
What is Monocyte Distribution Width?
Monocyte Distribution Width (MDW) is a regulatory-cleared, in vitro diagnostic parameter that reflects a change in circulating monocytes volume in response to pro-inflammatory signals from infectious organisms.
