We developed four algorithms for the automatic capture of C-reactive protein (CRP) peaks in 296 adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia who had bloodstream infection (BSI) episodes, negative blood cultures (BCs) or possible infections where no BCs were performed. The algorithms detected CRP peaks for 418-446 of the 586 documented BSI episodes (71.3-76.1%) and 2714-3118 of the 4382 negative BCs (61.9-71.2%). The four algorithms captured 382-789 CRP peaks in which there were neither BSI episodes nor negative BCs. We conclude that automatic capture of CRP peaks is a tool for the monitoring of BSI episodes and possibly other infections in patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
