In this podcast, which is a short segment from a comprehensive interview about sepsis I had with infectious disease physician, Steven LaRosa, MD this past weekend on the radio show, I pulled out an interesting segment on his views of what laboratory tests he found useful in the diagnosis of sepsis.
In the segment, LaRosa goes into quite a bit of detail on the Complete Blood Count, or CBC and looks at all the useful information a physician can get out of the very common laboratory test.
