Abstract
Date:  August 18, 2022
Time: 10:00am (PDT),  1:00pm (EDT), 7:00pm (CEST)
 
Assessing the risk of bacterial infection in patients with lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI) can be challenging as clinicians often have to rely on clinical observation and educated guesswork in the absence of definitive microbial diagnostics. Evolving etiologies for Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) add a layer of complexity. In this webinar you will learn how to use Procalcitonin (PCT) to assess the risk of bacterial infection and to aid in antibiotic stewardship when assessing these patients. Join Edward J. Septimus, M.D., F.I.D.S.A, F.A.C.P, F.S.H.E.A. as he discusses the use of PCT to manage adult patients with CAP and provides insights on patients with AECOPD with suspected LRTI.
 
 
Learning Objectives
  • Discuss evolving etiologies for Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP)
  • Review the role of biomarkers in the management of adults with CAP
  • Explore utilizing PCT in the management of  COPD Exacerbations with suspected lower respiratory infection
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
