Emergency Room - Triaging
Recent studies prove that the suPAR protein has a role in inflammatory response and is expressed within the human body in situations involving life threatening infectious diseases. Translating into the simple fact that identifying a patient’s suPARnostic® level upon presentation to hospitals or clinics will enable clinicians to assess which patients require immediate attention and further testing in order to ensure timely treatment.
As per the suPARnostic value spectrum (for more information about the spectrum, please look under ), developed and refined over years of intensive research, the following guidelines can be applied for the use of suPARnostic in the emergency room:
An individual classified as "HEALTHY" per the suPARnostic® spectrum and per other standard clinical parameters does not require acute care.
An individual classified as "OBSERVATION" and whose other standard clinical parameters are without pathological findings is not in need of acute attention, but should be observed and investigated further: If the patient's suPARnostic® level is rising further, an acute condition is developing and action needs to be taken swiftly; if the patient's suPARnostic® level stays constant at an elevated level, further investigation outside acute care might reveal an underlying condition.
An individual classified as "CRITICAL" needs immediate acute care attention as mortality risk is high.
