New Study Review: Diagnosis and Management of Pediatric Complicated Pneumonia using the Karius Test

In this webinar, Dr. David Hong, VP Medical Affairs and Clinical Development at Karius, discusses a newly published retrospective study in Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease, evaluating the impact of the Karius Test on pediatric community-acquired pneumonia and how it performs against standard-of-care diagnostic techniques such as cultures.

 

 

Summary:

Pediatric community-acquired pneumonia is a serious infection caused by a wide range of bacterial, viral, and fungal etiologies and is a leading cause of hospitalization in children. One of the main findings of the study was that as a direct result of Karius Test results, changes in antibiotic management were made in 47% of children hospitalized with complicated pneumonia1.

Webinar Topics:
- Introduction to the Karius Test
- Evaluation of the Karius Test in Pediatric Community-Acquired Pneumonia
