Sepsis is a constant concern in ICU, frequent and severe, it requires early diagnosis and prompt implementation of the etiological treatment. The bacterial infections are the most common and are associated with high morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis is based on the detection of micro-organisms (bacteria) that can confirm the diagnosis and to tailor antibiotic treatments. Blood cultures are positive in 30-35% of cases and diagnosis is often based on a body of evidence that the use of biomarkers. No biomarkers (or even a combination of biomarkers) no evidence to confirm or refute the diagnosis of sepsis alone. During sepsis, gram + and gram - are circulating and often present in small amounts; they can be detected by sensitive and specific tools following a pretreatment of the blood sample (innovative technology Bacti-DIAG).
The main objective of the multicentre study Bacti-DIAG-Rea is testing in prospectively, in a suspicious population resuscitation of sepsis, this new bacterial biomarker. Secondary objectives will assess whether Bacti-DIAG provides time and precision gain (gram + vs grams) in the patient's care including diagnosis and treatment.
All ICU patients and with clinical criteria of Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) sepsis suspects will be included: in addition to the samples taken for routine care of the patient 4 tubes of whole blood will be collected 5mL. The definitive diagnosis of sepsis or SIRS be confirmed retrospectively by two independent experts blinded to Bacti-DIAG. The areas under the ROC curves for the detection of gram + and gram will be calculated and associated detection limits will be determined to meet the objectives of the study.
It is planned to include 400 consecutive patients with SIRS criteria for sepsis 300-360 and analyze biometric and biological data based on the subsequent evolution of the patients. The care of patients will be blinded to the results of the new biomarker Bacti-DIAG

This study will evaluate the hypothesis that the use of pediatric size phlebotomy tubes reduces RBC transfusions in adult ICU patients compared with the use of adult size tubes.
The purpose of the study is to procure blood samples from patients ≥18 years of age who present to the Emergency Department (ED) with at least two of the diagnostic criteria for sepsis. ...

Although it is known that glucose concentration exhibits a time-dependent decay in uncentrifuged serum and lithium-heparin blood tubes, no evidence exists on how this variation may depend on blood cel...
Sepsis is life-threatening organ dysfunction due to a dysregulated host response to infection. Disturbed microvascular blood flow is associated with excess mortality and is a potential future target f...
Sepsis guidelines recommend obtaining blood cultures before starting anti-infective therapy in patients with sepsis. However, little is known how antibiotic treatment prior to sampling affects bacteri...
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.
Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.
Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Sepsis, septicaemia and blood poisoning
Septicaemia (another name for blood poisoning) refers to a bacterial infection of the blood, whereas sepsis can also be caused by viral or fungal infections. Sepsis is not just limited to the blood and can affect the whole body, including the organ...
