Sepsis Solutions

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences reports that over 1 million people in the United States fall victim to severe sepsis each year, and 15%–30% of cases result in death. With sepsis, every minute counts, making early detection the best hope for ending sepsis fatalities and injuries. When patients receive appropriate treatment within 2 hours after initiation of care, the survival rate is 60%. But extend that diagnosis to treatment time to 4 hours, and the survival rate reduces to a startling 30%.

bioMérieux's Solutions and Commitment

bioMérieux has developed a complete range of diagnostic solutions dedicated to helping clinicians diagnose sepsis as quickly and as accurately as possible, as well as educating patients and raising awareness about the dangers of this condition. Sepsis truly is a race against the clock, and we have continued to introduce innovative solutions, which have led to improved sepsis diagnosis.

The Power of Diagnostics

There is no singular solution for the detection of sepsis because it can be caused by different pathogens, some of which may not respond to antibiotics. Early diagnostic intelligence is helping shorten the time to treatment and allowing hospitals to optimize patient care with the right antibiotic therapy at the right time. This includes ongoing surveillance capabilities that support the timely discontinuation of treatment— minimizing the risks and impact of antibiotic overuse. Sepsis and antimicrobial resistance have become a dual public health crisis, and rapid diagnostics play a pivotal role is winning the fight against both conditions.
