Sepsis Bundle Compliance & the Impact of Septicyte RAPID
Recorded On: 04/26/2023
This Immunexpress sponsored session was part of the Sepsis Alliance AMR Conference 2023.
In this session, Dr. Sadia Aslam will present the findings of a clinical practice audit of sepsis bundle compliance, measuring time to antibiotics in suspected sepsis patients at Moses Cone Hospital. These results were retrospectively correlated with the Septiscore, a score measured via gene expression testing that aims to differentiate sepsis from non-infectious systemic inflammation. Dr. Aslam will share the areas for potential improvement that were identified in possible and probable sepsis patients for potential deferment of antimicrobials or re-evaluation at 48-72 hours.
Nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, emergency responders, pharmacists, medical technologists, respiratory therapists, physical/occupational therapists, infection prevention specialists, data/quality specialists, and more.
Sepsis Alliance gratefully acknowledges the support of this session provided by Immunexpress.
