Beckman Coulter is joining forces with Sepsis Alliance, one of the United States’ leading sepsis organizations, to support the Sepsis Coordinator Network. Sepsis is the body’s life-threatening reaction to infection and the leading cause of death in hospitals in the United States, taking a life every two minutes. As the first of its kind, that is, an online, peer-to-peer association for healthcare professionals, the Sepsis Coordinator Network is committed to helping save lives by improving patient outcomes. Delayed treatment of sepsis can cause cardiovascular collapse, tissue damage, organ failure and, ultimately, death. The availability of timely, accurate detection solutions is critical to stopping the progression of this deadly condition. Beckman Coulter is dedicated to helping improve sepsis patient outcomes by developing a portfolio of tools to help move the industry forward in terms of early detection and treatment options.
The Sepsis Coordinator Network provides its members with evidence-based, best-practice resources, and guidance to identify and treat sepsis. Since its launch on May 22, 2018, the network has grown to include more than 1300 healthcare professionals from over 1000 hospitals in all 50 states, covering more than 390,000 hospital beds.
The Sepsis Coordinator Network is led by experts in the field of nursing with critical experience in caring for sepsis patients. A complementary team of healthcare professionals from across the continuum of care serve as clinical advisors in specialized areas. They include physicians, pharmacists, and mental health specialists, among others.
