This presentation reviews the utility of PCT in the emergency department and describes its role in helping identify patients with bacterial infections at risk for developing sepsis and aiding in management of their therapy. Join Dr. Larissa May, MD, MSPH, MSHS as she discusses the regulation and kinetics of PCT during infection and the evidence of PCT as a valuable tool in aiding antibiotic stewardship.
