Session 6 - D-Dimer in Sepsis

Join our Sixth session on D-Dimer in Sepsis with Dr. Mauro Panigada!


About this webinar


Sepsis is a condition that rises from the body's response to infection by bacteria, viruses, or fungi and inducing organ damage. It is one of the main causes of death in the ICU. In the process of clinical assessment of organ damage, tools like the sequential organ failure assessment score (SOFA score), or the quick SOFA score (qSOFA) assist health care providers in estimating the risk of morbidity and mortality due to sepsis.
Sepsis can evolve into disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) when the response to the infection becomes overwhelming and the involvement of coagulation and fibrinolysis may aggravate the organ failure by generating clots throughout the vascular system.
The systemic activation of coagulation may lead to overconsumption of clotting factors and inhibitors and this imbalance of coagulation is associated with changes of the results of several coagulation markers like Prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), fibrinogen, antithrombin, and D-dimer among others. Please join us for the talk by Dr. Mauro Panigada who provides a comprehensive overview of the role of D-Dimer in the diagnosis of Sepsis and its evolution.
