When time = survival, anything that could streamline the process of fighting the battle against sepsis would and should be a valuable tool. Seems this new ‘Prove-it’ sepsis assay test might be a great addition.
Most tests that evaluate the possibility and the presence of a patient being ‘septic’ can take almost 24 hrs or more. This handy-dandy lil’ tool can do that job in a fraction of the time. Now of course it’s accuracy is not on the same level as the tried-and-true methods, but I think this might be something that could help deter the veracity or severity of sepsis?
The longer sepsis goes untreated the worse a patient can and will get. Sepsis is nothing to fool around with.
