jwells78 Posted August 27, 2013 Share Posted August 27, 2013 Ok, so since I have returned from the box- these tests have begun to take hold and are ordered more regularly on the sick sickies in our ER. The lactic acid (more than just for it's obvious significance) more as a predictor of morbidity/mortality in our admitted ICU pts, ect; >4 being bad news. I've seen more providers using the procalcitonin as a guide in sepsis/bacterial infection as well. Are you other ER guys seeing this trend? Are you using this? What has been your guidance, and how are you instituting these? Thanks -J Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
