Webinar: Procalcitonin (PCT)

Thermo Fisher Scientific is holding a webinar entitled "How to Incorporate Procalcitonin (PCT) into your Facility's Sepsis Initiative", 24 February 2011 - 4pm EST.

The speaker is Kirsten R. Pyle-Springer, RN, CCRN, CNRN, Sepsis Coordinator at Surgical/Neuro/Trauma Intensive Care Unit, Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, California.

Awareness of Sepsis is growing thanks in part to efforts like the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC). In this webinar, Ms Pyle-Springer discusses this trend and the risk of Sepsis in critical care settings. She also discusses Procalcitonin (PCT) and how this sensitive biomarker can serve as an important adjunct to the SSC guidelines as part of a multi-point strategy for improving the management, diagnosis and treatment of Sepsis.
