Sepsis: A critical healthcare burden needing rapid diagnoses to improve patient outcomes

Presented by Demi-Colton

Webinar overview: The mortality rate of sepsis patients increases by as much as 8% each hour proper treatment is not started. Sepsis costs the US healthcare system $62 billion and leads to 270,000 deaths annually. Current diagnoses are inadequate – they take too long and sepsis patients do not have time. Furthermore, they are often wrong. This discussion will focus on the burden of sepsis and how we need to change the paradigm.
