maybe 40% improvement over standard operating care is not enough to sell filters
after all, when most of us thinking of stopping a "storm" of something attacking the body we think of a very big, drastic reduction such as 90-100 percent
if the filter only removes an additional 40 percent beyond standard care then it isn't changing the equation all that much
what that tells doctors is that most of what is causing the sepsis will remain with or without the filter
perhaps that is why they are having such difficulty selling the filter and why they are already looking at making changes, especially to particle size
trying to think of other reasons why doctors are so reluctant to use these filters
of course, they need to see the results of the studies that are two years overdue so they have some protocols to go by but just based on the CE trail, flawed as it was and requiring ad hoc interpretation/explanation, it still seems that the filter should be much, much, much more popular among medical professionals
anybody else have ideas why filters aren't selling?
