New paper from Nature.com – ‘Predicting sepsis using a combination of clinical information and molecular immune markers sampled in the ambulance’
Abstract (Edited from Nature.com)
Sepsis, a life-threatening condition resulting from the body’s exaggerated response to an infection, affects millions people a year globally. For this reason, WHO has called for a global action on sepsis and early diagnosis is one crucial aspect to consider for improved care of the septic patient.
Sepsis is a time dependent condition. Screening tools based on clinical parameters have been shown to increase the identification of sepsis. The aim of current study was to evaluate the additional predictive value of immunological molecular markers to our previously developed prehospital screening tools.
