About this talk

Sepsis is a prevalent, deadly, yet often elusive condition in emergency departments worldwide. Diagnosing sepsis in patients presenting with mild and non-specific initial symptoms challenges both clinical gestalt and institutional protocols, as use of biomarkers for early sepsis detection has been controversial and their utilization varies widely across countries and institutions. In this webinar recording hosted by Sepsis Alliance, Angela D. Craig, APN, M.S., CCNS from Cookeville Regional Medical Center and Dustin Pierce, RN, BSN, CPHQ from University of Kansas Hospital will: • Introduce and discuss a novel hematologic parameter, MDW, recently cleared in the U.S. for sepsis detection in the emergency department • Review current clinical evidence for MDW based on results of two large multicenter studies • Discuss the practical implications of these results to the U.S. standards of sepsis care Presenters: Angela Craig, APN, M.S., CCNS ICU Clinical Nurse Specialist at Cookeville Regional Medical Center Dustin Pierce, R.N., BSN, CPHQ Quality Outcomes Coordinator at The University of Kansas Hospital
