Monocytes Distribution Width (MDW) New Sepsis Detection Biomarker

Presented by

Elliiot Crouser, MD and Nan West, MT (ASCP)

About this talk

In this webinar, Dr Elliott Crouser from Ohio State University will discuss sepsis epidemiology, definitions and implications of sepsis. He will introduce a novel sepsis biomarker Monocytes Distribution Width (MDW) that is intended for an aid in early detection of sepsis in adult patients in Emergency Department. MDW available automatically as a part of the most common triage test - CBC with Differential. MDW may be of highest utility in patients with low initial clinical suspicion and high diagnostic uncertainty for sepsis. Additionally, you will hear Nan West, MT (ASCP) from Truman Medical Center who will share a patient case study of diagnostic challenges and importance of early identification of sepsis. Throughout the webinar the presenters will: 1. Discuss the current state of sepsis identification in the U.S.; approaches, outcomes, and opportunities 2. Review the novel sepsis biomarker for the emergency department MDW - available automatically as a part of CBC with Differential Test 3. Explain role of MDW for early sepsis detection while reviewing a patient case study 4. Describe the implementation of MDW in the clinical laboratory
