Project Description:

I am a PhD student and clinical doctor at the Department of Emergency Medicine of Semmelweis University, participating in the Translational Medicine PhD Program. I am interested in developing the management of sepsis among patients admitted to the Emergency Department. Early management with adequate antimicrobials and rapid resuscitation to restore and stabilize hemodynamic status is associated with improved outcomes. Currently, I am working on a meta-analysis, which aims to investigate the accuracy of rapid molecular assays performed on whole blood, allowing earlier pathogen identification in patients with bloodstream infection. I am planning to conduct a second meta-analysis concerning the effect of appropriate antibiotic use in septic patients. I aim to increase sepsis awareness and the importance of early treatment to reduce mortality rates.
