CPD ACTIVITIES

  • Procalcitonin in the management of severe bacterial sepsis

    The systemic inflammatory response is based on the innate and adaptive im mune response and within them on the pro and anti-inflammatory processes, wh ich are simultaneously built up, short-lived and self-limited.   T he rules of procalcitonin (PCT) usage in septic patients are based on PCT me asurement at the admission, followed by daily measurements to detect the max imum PCT value and beyond the PCT value changes which declines according to the therapy appropriateness. The use of PCT in sepsis after previous sepsis or chronic critically ill patients follows the same rules as in “norma l” but the maximum PCT value reached is lower, despite this the smalle r PCT values should be taken more seriously since they are generated by a pa rticular exhausted immune and organ response. The use of PCT does not differ from non-immunosuppressed one, but the initiation time of an appropriate tr eatment is shorter in this subpopulation.
