Özet

Objective: The identification of bacteraemia in patients with suspected sepsis is crucial for survival. A cheap, fast and reliable biomarker, which can predict the causative pathogen group, may be useful to confirm or exclude the presence of bacteraemia. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between procalcitonin (PCT) and the causative pathogen in intensive care patients with sepsis and bacteraemia.
