The Importance of Procalcitonin for Antimicrobial Stewardship in Patients with Lower Respiratory Tract Infections in the Emergency Department

Sponsored by: bioMérieux Inc
Speaker

Abstract

DATE: June 26, 2019

TIME: 11:00am EDT

This webinar will explore how using  a procalcitonin (PCT) driven protocol in the Emergency Room can aid clinicians in deciding about hospital admission versus treatment in the home setting.  We will look at the existing data using procalcitonin in patients with presumed Lower Respiratory Tract Infections(LRTI) and how antibiotic stewardship teams could use this biomarker in shaping their clinical decisions. Lastly, we will examine what stewardship metrics may be impacted by using a procalcitonin guided protocol.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the role of procalcitonin (PCT) for acute presentation in the emergency department of lower respiratory tract infection and sepsis.
  • Understand appropriate use of procalcitonin (PCT) and how to interpret pct levels in the emergency department

 

Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
