Bedside vs. Standard Microbiological Blood Culture Diagnostics - BEMIDIA Study

2016-12-22 21:19:39 | BioPortfolio


With a completely bedside blood culture diagnostics system (BACTEC blood culture system in combination with the Accelerate ID/AST System) it is possible to optimize the initial antimicrobial therapy in patients with sepsis and septic shock.

Prospective observational, open-label mono-center study to compare a completely bedside blood culture diagnostics system (BACTEC blood culture system in combination with the Accelerate ID/AST System and Curetis Univero System) with standard blood culture diagnostics in patients with sepsis or septic shock.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Condition of low SYSTEMIC VASCULAR RESISTANCE that develops secondary to other conditions such as ANAPHYLAXIS; SEPSIS; SURGICAL SHOCK; and SEPTIC SHOCK. Vasoplegia that develops during or post surgery (e.g., CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS) is called postoperative vasoplegic syndrome or vasoplegic syndrome.

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.

An abnormally low volume of blood circulating through the body. It may result in hypovolemic shock (see SHOCK).

A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.
