Background: Sepsis likely contributes to the high burden of infectious disease morbidity and mortality in low income countries. Data regarding sepsis management in sub-Saharan Africa are limited. We conducted a prospective ...
Point-of-care lactate testing predicts mortality of severe sepsis in a predominantly HIV type 1–infected patient population in Uganda
(Infectious Diseases Society of America, 2008)
Background: Prediction of mortality may improve management and outcomes of patients with sepsis in resource-limited settings. Therefore, we evaluated the ability of a hand-held portable whole-blood lactate (PWBL) analyzer ...
Treatment of severe sepsis with Artemether-Lumefantrine Is associated with decreased mortality in Ugandan patients without malaria
