A 20-year-old patient with a history of lupus presented to the emergency department with shortness of breath
This case highlights the benefit of T2Bacteria’s rapid bacterial species identification, which enabled early identification of the causative pathogen in a critically-ill, immunocompromised patient. Bacterial infections commonly occur following successful treatment of viral infections. These infections are often missed due to prior antimicrobial use, especially in at-risk patient populations, leading to treatment delays and negative clinical outcomes.
A 67-year-old patient had experienced infections, including multi-drug resistant pneumonia, sepsis, and C. difficile colitis during admission.
This case highlights the benefit of T2Candida’s rapid fungal species identification, which allowed for the continuation of appropriate antifungal therapy as well as the discontinuation of unnecessary broad-spectrum antibiotics, resulting in clinical improvement.
An elderly patient presented to the ED with a day-long history of fever, shaking, suprapubic pain, vomiting, and diarrhea
This case highlights not only T2Bacteria’s ability of rapid identification but also the capability to detect the causative organism and use the result to de-escalate therapy.
According to the CDC, of the 154 million prescriptions for antibiotics written in doctors' offices and emergency departments each year, 30% are unnecessary.12
