Procalcitonin Screening Helps Provide Early Identification of Sepsis

In a retrospective study of a large and diverse population of critically ill patients, researchers have found that screening for sepsis by procalcitonin (PCT) testing at admission to intensive care unit (ICU) notably reduced the hospitalization length-of-stay and total cost of care. The study clearly suggests that PCT screening on the first day of ICU admission is a potentially important diagnostic tool. More...
