Topic

This webinar, presented by Sepsis Alliance, will provide a close analysis of the systemic inflammation mortality risk in children, and will invite learners to consider adjuvant therapy to reduce risk. Attendees will discuss the use of procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), and ferritin in pediatric clinical practice, including how these can be used to assess bacterial infection, systemic inflammation risk, sepsis risk, and response to therapy in hospitalized children with sepsis. Learners will also explore the relationship between COVID-19, sepsis, and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), and will have the opportunity to review a pediatric clinical case study.
