HemoCue Webinar: Avoid Uncertainty with a White Blood Cell Count at the Point of Care

This webinar will address judicious antibiotic use and discuss how use of a simple white blood cell count and differential laboratory test, easily performed in minutes, can assist in deciding who to treat or not to treat with antibiotics.

mei 8, 2017

Uncertainty regarding the diagnosis when patients have bacterial or viral infections, especially respiratory infections, often leads to excessive, unnecessary antibiotic use, thereby promoting the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Clinicians have long known that antibiotics can hasten recovery from illness and save lives but more recent evidence shows that antibiotics can also cause harm by disturbing the natural balance of the human microbiome. Therefore, judicious use of antibiotics has emerged as a desired goal for patients and clinicians. 

This presentation will address judicious antibiotic use and discuss how use of a simple white blood cell count and differential laboratory test, easily performed in minutes, can assist in deciding who to treat and who not to treat with antibiotics.
