KGI: INNOVATION IN APPLIED LIFE SCIENCES & HEALTHCARE PODCAST: In this episode, Dr. Stephen Kingsmore discusses reviewing the first 10 years of genome-informed healthcare for children and predicting the next 10 years.
Two thirds of children who underwent genetic testing in the pediatric intensive care unit showed a genetic variant, and a third of these children received changes in care as a result, according to a new study presented at the Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) 2023 Critical Care Congress.
The use of diagnostic rapid whole-genome sequencing (rWGS) can play a crucial role in guiding treatment for critically ill children, researchers reported at the 2023 Critical Care Congress, in San Francisco.
Today we highlight three potentially practice-changing studies…. When the reason for a child’s critical illness is unclear, rapid genetic testing often helps identify the problem and point doctors to the right treatment – but it is currently underused, researchers say.
