The shorter time to diagnosis needs to be correlated with a real-time report to the clinical team to be translated into an effective intervention that improves antimicrobial therapy. Beganovic et al.
The initial empirical antimicrobial therapy was considered "appropriate" if the initial antibiotics included at least one antibiotic that was active in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing results and when at least the minimum recommended dose was administered via the intravenous route [9].
In addition, before the antimicrobial susceptibility results arrived, the postintervention patients were more likely to be on active antimicrobial therapy (77%) than the preintervention patients (47%; p = 0.005).
However, where PCT appears to show some promise in the management of sepsis is in guiding earlier discontinuation of antimicrobial therapy.
