This webcast originally aired as a live webinar sponsored by AACC on November 12, 2013. In 2013, U.S. hospitals treated more than 500,000 cases of sepsis, a syndrome characterized by a systemic response to infection that can rapidly lead to organ failure and death. In an effort to help reduce sepsis-related mortality rates, many healthcare organizations are asking their laboratories to help physicians and nurses recognize patients with sepsis at an early stage. During this program, Dr. Alison Woodworth and Dr. Jessica Colon-Franco report on efforts undertaken at Vanderbilt University to develop a multimarker strategy for the early detection of sepsis.
