Monocyte Distribution Width as Biomarker for Early Sepsis Detection

2019 25 Jul

Existing biomarkers provide limited use for rapid detection of sepsis since they cannot accurately distinguish sepsis from other common conditions encountered in the emergency department (ED). Now a U.S. clinical trial suggests that the monocyte distribution width (MDW) can be a useful indicator of Sepsis-2 and Sepsis-3 in high-risk ED patients. "Changes... Read more

New Protocol Improves Sepsis Detection in Children

2017 12 Jun

Sepsis, a life-threatening condition, is difficult to identify accurately in children. Researchers in the U.S. have developed a two-stage electronic sepsis alert (ESA) to improve detection of paediatric severe sepsis in the emergency department. Using a combination of vital signs, risk factors and physician judgment, the ESA reduces missed sepsis diagnoses... Read more

Sepsis Detection and Management: New KLAS Report

2017 28 May

Healthcare providers are increasingly turning to technology to detect sepsis and report on sepsis management. As most electronic medical record (EMR) providers do not offer easily deployed sepsis modules, healthcare providers report using solutions from infection control and surveillance vendors as well as specialised sepsis solutions. KLAS Research’s... Read more
