Learn about PCT, PCT kinetics, managing sepsis, and antibiotic stewardship in this video library. To learn more, visit the B·R·A·H·M·S PCT Education page.
Dr. Gluck discusses the challenges in diagnosing and treating systemic bacterial infections and the role of procalcitonin in this short video.
B·R·A·H·M·S PCT is a critical component to reduce unneeded antibiotic usage and limit antibiotic exposure in LRTI and Sepsis.
Dr. Gluck highlights how B·R·A·H·M·S PCT is used to help assess presence or absence of a bacterial infection in the Intensive Care Unit.
B·R·A·H·M·S PCT can be used to help customize antibiotic therapy for patients with bacterial infections. Dr. Broyles provides real-world insight and experience.
Webinar: Procalcitonin as an Aid for Risk Assessment in COIVD-19 (SARS-CoV-2) and Influenza Related Secondary Infections
PCT now also demonstrates evolving evidence as a valuable tool in current COVID-19 epidemics to aid in early identification of patients at low risk of bacterial infection on admission as well as assist in detection of bacterial co-infection in hospitalized patients.
Webinar: Use of Procalcitonin (PCT) in Patients Presenting with Overlapping Symptoms
This webinar reviews the utility of PCT in the emergency department or inpatient hospital settings, and describes perspectives of three different clinicians and their approach to implementing this biomarker in clinical practice.

Dr. Eric Gluck, Chicago's Swedish Convenant Hospital
Every year, severe sepsis affects more than three quarters of a million patients—and as many as 40 percent of these patients die. Dr. Gluck explains how early identification of septic patients is crucial.
Stephen Barnes, BSN, RN, alumnus CCRN, clinical consultant, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Mr. Barnes provides an overview of sepsis, incidence of sepsis in the U.S., importance of early detection, treatments for sepsis, and survival rates.
