Dr Armando Teixeira-Pinto
Sepsis is a leading cause of death in patients admitted to Intensive Care. While guidelines for sepsis management have shown limited success, a conceptual staging system was proposed by a panel of experts to classify septic patients according to four axes: Predisposition, Infection, Response and Organ dysfunction. For the two last axes, the inclusion of longitudinal biomarkers may improve the discrimination ability of the prognostic models associated with Response and Organ dysfunction. In this talk, I will presented and discuss some results on ongoing research of possible statistical strategies to use repeated measures of these covariates in the prognostic models.
The seminar will be followed by wine and finger food in the staff room. All attendees are welcome!
