Theater Information

Join the panel discussion lead by Dr. Phillip Levy from Wayne Health to introduce the novel hematological parameter MDW (Monocyte Distribution Width) and discuss the latest evidence on how the MDW biomarker is being used as to aid in severe infection diagnostics and risk of sepsis in adult patients in the Emergency Department. MDW is available as a part of CBC with Differential test, which is already routinely utilized as an early screening test for a variety of conditions, making it uniquely suitable in the Emergency Department setting. Dr. Jeremiah Hinson from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine will review recent clinical evidence and the implications of these results for U.S. standards of patient care. Dr. Nima Sarani from Kansas University Medical Center will discuss practical aspects of MDW utility in clinical practice across patient presentations in his institution.
