MDW Biomarker Study Findings at Lin-Kou Medical Center Taiwan

Presented by

Julian Chen-June Seak, M.D., MSc.

About this talk

Over-crowding at major hospitals is a major problem around the world. Dr. Seak examines the overcrowding and risk stratification in emergency department and the need for early detection of sepsis in the ED. In this webinar, Dr. Seak will discuss the importance of identifying sepsis earlier. It may be very difficult for even the most experienced physician to detect sepsis earlier because the signs and symptoms of sepsis may be very non-specific and vague. There are many sources of infection that need to be identified and it’s often hard for emergency physicians to perform such kind of detection in very crowded, busy emergency departments. Dr. Seak looks at preliminary findings of a study examining 198 total adult patients. The primary outcome was to compare the diagnostic accuracy between MDW, WBC, and procalcitonin in predicting sepsis-2 and sepsis-3 patients. After attending the webinar, you will be able to understand: •Current and future detection tools for sepsis •Learn about improved early detection of sepsis with the novel MDW biomarker •Find out preliminary findings of the MDW study at one of the largest and busiest emergency departments in the world
