    DATE: April 3, 2019

    TIME: 11:00am EDT

    This webinar is designed to educate on the kinetics of procalcitonin which is a marker of sepsis and bacterial infection.  We will discuss the use specifically in patients presenting to the emergency room. The webinar will clarify the positive predictive value in the Emergency Department as well as the negative predictive value in the undifferentiated patient.

    Key learning objectives:

    • Understand the role of pct for acute presentation in the emergency dept. of upper resp infection and sepsis
    • Understand appropriate use of pct and how to interpret pct levels in the emergency department

     

    LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
