Second National Forum on Sepsis Highlight video

In treating sepsis, The first hour can be critical and the First 24 can be decisive.

Sepsis can be extremely difficult to diagnose because its primary symptoms mimic the symptoms of several other critical care conditions, including myocardial infarction, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism and other high-morbidity conditions. And because of the aggressive nature of sepsis, diagnosing and initiating treatment of this infection needs to happen as soon as possible. Access to specific information may increase the accuracy of sepsis diagnostics during the critical early stages.

The need for more effective strategies to help manage sepsis is urgent.

This site was developed to increase awareness and share knowledge related to the use of Procalcitonin and other testing techniques and systems that can be used in diagnosing, treating and managing sepsis.
