Near-patient test for C-reactive protein in general practice: assessment of clinical, organizational, and economic outcomes. (1/1139)

BACKGROUND: The benefits of near-patient, point-of-care tests have not been fully examined. We have assessed the clinical, organizational, and economic outcomes of implementing a near-patient test for C-reactive protein (CRP) in general practice. METHODS: In a randomized crossover trial during intervention periods, general practitioners (GPs) were allowed to measure CRP within 3 min, using NycoCard(R) CRP. During control periods, they had to mail blood samples for CRP measurements to the hospital laboratory and received test results 24-48 h later. Twenty-nine general practice clinics participated (64 GPs), and 1853 patients were included in the study. Results were evaluated at both the level of participating GPs and the level of included patients. RESULTS: For participating GPs, the overall use of erythrocyte sedimentation rates (ESRs) decreased by 8% (95% confidence interval, 1-14%) during intervention periods, and the number of blood samples mailed to the hospital laboratory decreased by 6% (1-10%). No reduction in the prescription of antibiotics was seen. The proportion of study patients having a follow-up telephone consultation was reduced from 63% to 53% (P = 0. 0001), and patients with CRP concentrations >50 mg/L had their antibiotic treatments started earlier when CRP was measured in general practices (P = 0.0161). CONCLUSION: The implementation of the near-patient CRP test was cost-effective mainly on the basis of a reduction in the use of services from the hospital laboratory by GPs. If the implementation is followed by education and clinical guidelines, opportunities exist for additional reduction in the use of ESR and for a more appropriate use of antibiotics.  (+info)

Duplex scanning may be used selectively in patients with primary varicose veins. (2/1139)

Reflux was assessed using hand-held Doppler (HHD) and duplex scanning in 72 patients with primary, previously untreated varicose veins (108 limbs). The aims of the study were (i) to compare the accuracy of HHD assessment with duplex scanning, (ii) to assess the benefit of tourniquet testing and (iii) to identify patients who would benefit from a policy of selective duplex scanning. HHD accurately assesses the saphenofemoral junction (SFJ) and long saphenous vein (LSV) reflux. HHD assessment of the saphenopopliteal junction (SPJ) reflux has a low positive predictive value. A high negative predictive value reflects absent SPJ reflux assessed using HHD accurately. Tourniquet testing is not helpful. Selective duplex scanning of limbs with suspected SPJ reflux, no identifiable site of reflux or posterior thigh perforator reflux on HDD (39% of limbs), would result in the appropriate surgical procedure being performed in 102 (94%) limbs, excessive surgery in 5 (5%) limbs and inadequate surgery in only 1 (1%) limb. The use of selective criteria for duplex scanning would reduce the workload of the vascular laboratory without compromising patient care.  (+info)

Seamless multiresolution display of portable wavelet-compressed images. (3/1139)

Image storage, display, and distribution have been difficult problems in radiology for many years. As improvements in technology have changed the nature of the storage and display media, demand for image portability, faster image acquisition, and flexible image distribution is driving the development of responsive systems. Technology, such as the wavelet-based multiresolution seamless image database (MrSID) portable image format (PIF), is enabling image management solutions that address the shifting "point-of-care." The MrSID PIF employs seamless, multiresolution technology, which allows the viewer to determine the size of the image to be viewed, as well as the position of the viewing area within the image dataset. In addition the MrSID PIF allows control of the compression ratio of decompressed images. This capability offers the advantage of very rapid image recall from storage devices and portability for rapid transmission and distribution using the internet or wide-area networks. For example, in teleradiology, the radiologist or other physician desiring to view images at a remote location has full flexibility in being able to choose a quick display of an overview image, a complete display of a full diagnostic quality image, or both without compromising communication bandwidth. The MrSID algorithm will satisfy Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) 2000 standards, thereby being compatible with future versions of the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard for image data compression.  (+info)

Quantitative bedside assay for cardiac troponin T: a complementary method to centralized laboratory testing. (4/1139)

BACKGROUND: In the evaluation of chest pain patients, whole blood bedside assays of highly specific cardiac molecules may be an attractive alternative to centralized clinical chemistry testing. We now report on an optimized test strip device for cardiac troponin T (cTnT) that can be analyzed by a cardiac reader for quantitative assessment of the test result. METHODS AND RESULTS: The cTnT test strip reader measures, via a CCD camera, the reflectance of the signal line. For quantitative analysis, a calibration curve was constructed from 1030 samples of 252 consecutive patients with acute coronary syndromes. In a method comparison of 140 samples, the quantitative results of the cTnT test strip reader correlated closely with the results of the cTnT ELISA (r = 0.98; y = 0.85x + 0. 002). Within-run and day-to-day (n = 10) mean CVs were between 11% and 16%, respectively. The cross-reactivity with skeletal troponin T was <0.02%. In patients with myocardial infarction, 45% and 91% of all samples were positive on admission and at 4-8 h after the onset of symptoms, respectively. ROC curve analysis demonstrated a comparable efficiency of the cTnT test strip reader and the laboratory-based cTnT ELISA in patients with suspected myocardial infarction. CONCLUSIONS: It is now possible to quantitatively determine cTnT at the patient's bedside with a rapid and convenient test device. This will facilitate the diagnostic work up of patients with suspected myocardial cell necrosis.  (+info)

Risk stratification after acute myocardial infarction by Doppler stroke distance measurement. (5/1139)

OBJECTIVE: To establish the value of Doppler stroke distance measurement as a predictor of mortality risk following acute myocardial infarction. DESIGN: Follow up study. SETTING: Coronary care unit of a teaching and district general hospital. SUBJECTS: 378 patients (mean age 61 years) with acute myocardial infarction followed up for a mean of five years (range 2-7 years); 299 (79%) patients received thrombolysis. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Stroke distance (the systolic velocity integral of blood flow in the aortic arch (percentage of age predicted normal value)); presence or absence of left ventricular failure on the admission chest radiograph; the codified admission ECG; death during follow up. RESULTS: Mean (SD) stroke distance was 81 (19)% and five year survival 76%. For patients with stroke distance > 100% (n = 60), 82-100% (n = 134), 63-81% (n = 122), and < 63% (n = 62), the one month mortality rates were 0%, 1.5%, 4%, and 18%, respectively; the corresponding estimates for mortality at five years were 17%, 19%, 24%, and 43%. Survival was independently related to age (p < 0.0001), stroke distance (p < 0.0001), and chest radiograph appearance (p = 0.002), but not to ECG codes (p = 0.31) or receipt of thrombolysis (p = 0.60). The areas under receiver operator characteristic plots for stroke distance measurements were 82%, 76%, 71%, and 65% for deaths within one month, six months, one year, and two years, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The bedside measurement of stroke distance stratifies mortality risk after acute myocardial infarction. The predictive ability of this simple measure of left ventricular systolic function compares well with published accounts of the more complex measurement of ejection fraction.  (+info)

Computing for the next millennium. (6/1139)

Computer technology has changed our lives, even that of physicians. In a few years time, a physician can expect to have a new tool by the bedside: a hand-held computer small enough to put into a pocket and powerful enough for all everyday activities, including highly specialized and sophisticated activities such as prevention of adverse drug reactions. The Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet) was crucial in bringing the benefits of the information technology to the Croatian scientists. At the Split University School of Medicine, we started the Virtual Medical School project, which now also includes the Mostar University School of Medicine in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina. Virtual Medical School aims to promote free dissemination of medical knowledge by creating medical education network as a gateway to the Internet for health care professionals.  (+info)

Accuracy of the i-STAT bedside blood gas analyser. (7/1139)

The performance of the i-STAT portable clinical analyser for measuring blood gases and pH was evaluated with reference to a conventional blood gas analyser (ABL520 Radiometer). Ninety-two samples from the routine blood gas analysis laboratory were chosen according to a wide distribution of partial pressure of carbon dioxide (Pa,CO2), partial pressure oxygen (Pa,O2) and pH and then analysed. All measurements were performed in duplicate by trained technicians from the central hospital laboratory. Differences between duplicate measurements were computed for Pa,CO2: (1.2 versus 0.4%), Pa,O2 (1.7 versus 1.1%) and pH (0.06 versus 0.02%), for the i-STAT and ABL520, respectively. pH and Pa,CO2 values measured with the i-STAT were very close to those obtained with the ABL520, the difference (mean+/-SD) being 0.006+/-0.018 and -0.13+/-0.17 kPa, respectively. Statistical analysis showed that the differences between analysers did not depend on values of pH or Pa,CO2. The performance of the analysers depended on the level of PO2. Below 15 kPa (n=48), the two systems gave nearly identical values, the mean difference was 0.01+/-0.37 kPa. Between 16 and 55 kPa (n=44), there was a systematic but small (-0.69+/-0.67 kPa) underestimation of Pa,O2 measured with the i-STAT (p<10(-8)). In conclusion, this study shows that blood gas analysis using the i-STAT portable device is comparable with that performed by a conventional laboratory blood gas analyser.  (+info)

Systematic review of near patient test evaluations in primary care. (8/1139)

OBJECTIVE: To identify and qualitatively synthesise the findings from all studies that have examined the performance and effect of near patient tests in the primary care setting. DESIGN: Systematic review of published and unpublished research 1986-99. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Test performance characteristics, measures of effect on clinical practice or patient outcome. RESULTS: 101 relevant publications were identified. The general quality of these papers was low, and consequently only 32 papers were assessed in detail. Although these papers gave some indication of the value of near patient testing in areas such as anticoagulation monitoring and group A beta haemolytic streptococcus testing, the research raised many more questions than it answered. Almost no reports were found of unbiased assessment of the effect of near patient tests in primary care on patient outcomes, organisational outcomes, or cost. CONCLUSIONS: Available research provides little evidence to guide the expansion of use of near patient testing in primary care. Further research is needed in areas of clinical practice where near patient tests might be most beneficial.  (+info)

Point-of-care tests (POCTs) offer considerable potential for improving clinical and public health management of COVID-19 by providing timely information to guide decision-making, but data on real-world performance are in short supply. Besides SARS-CoV-2-specific tests, there is growing interest in the role of surrogate (non-specific) tests such as FebriDx, a biochemical POCT which can be used to distinguish viral from bacterial infection in patients with influenza-like illnesses. This short report assesses what is currently known about FebriDx performance across settings and populations by comparison with some of the more intensively evaluated SARS-CoV-2-specific POCTs. While FebriDx shows some potential in supporting triage for early-stage infection in acute care settings, this is dependent on SARS-CoV-2 being the most likely cause for influenza-like illnesses, with reduction in discriminatory power when COVID-19 case numbers are low, and when co-circulating viral respiratory infections become ...

Tracking the progress of HIV: the impact of point-of-care tests on antiretroviral therapy Steven D Reid, Sarah J Fidler, Graham S Cooke Department of Infectious Diseases, St Mary's Hospital, Imperial College London, London, UK Abstract: It is now around 30 years since the discovery of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. More than 70 million people have been infected in that time and around 35 million have died. The majority of those currently living with HIV/AIDS are in low- and middle-income countries, with sub-Saharan Africa bearing a disproportionate burden of the global disease. In high-income countries, the introduction of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has drastically reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with HIV. Patients on ART are now predicted to have near-normal life expectancy and the role of treatment is increasingly recognized in preventing new infections. In low- and middle-income countries, treatment is now more widely available and around half of those who need ART are

Background: Due to the unpredictable burden of pandemic influenza, the best strategy to manage testing, such as rapid or polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and antiviral medications for patients who present with influenza-like illness (ILI) is unknown. Methodology/Principal Findings: We developed a set of computer simulation models to evaluate the potential economic value of seven strategies under seasonal and pandemic influenza conditions: (1) using clinical judgment alone to guide antiviral use, (2) using PCR to determine whether to initiate antivirals, (3) using a rapid (point-of-care) test to determine antiviral use, (4) using a combination of a point-of-care test and clinical judgment, (5) using clinical judgment and confirming the diagnosis with PCR testing, (6) treating all with antivirals, and (7) not treating anyone with antivirals. For healthy younger adults (,65 years old) presenting with ILI in a seasonal influenza scenario, strategies were only cost-effective from the societal ...

The skin, soft tissue, and most parts of the musculoskeletal system are relatively superficial anatomical structures and ideal targets for ultrasound examination in the emergency departments. Soft tissue and musculoskeletal ultrasound applications are relatively underused compared to traditional emergency applications, such as trauma, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and chest and cardiovascular systems. It is important to have knowledge about sonoanatomy and landmarks within the skin, soft tissue, and musculoskeletal systems. Portable machines equipped with high-resolution transducers are now available to fulfill this field of applications in many emergency departments. After needling practice, emergency physicians can not only diagnose and identify pathological findings but also provide interventional procedures and treatments. In this review, we will introduce point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) applications regarding the soft tissue and musculoskeletal systems: soft tissue infections, joint effusions,

As perioperative anesthesiologists, we work in a fast-paced environment where we often have to make critical decisions for patients with rapidly evolving pathology and clinical scenarios. These potentially life-saving interventions are made without the luxury of time for a complete assessment or ordering of advanced imaging. Therefore, emergencies inherently result in gaps in clinical evidence and the potential for suboptimal management.. The idiom seeing is believing means that only physical or concrete (i.e., visible) evidence is convincing. In these emergent and critical scenarios, point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) has proven to be a powerful tool to obtain concrete evidence to either confirm or rule out severe and potentially life threatening conditions.. ...

Background: Measurement of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels is standard of care in assessment of glycemic control among diabetes mellitus patients. Traditional high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) based tests are expensive, need specialized equipment, and have a longer turn-around-time. Point-of-care tests to estimate HbA1c levels are now commercially available but with only limited studies from developed nations. We performed this study to understand diagnostic accuracy of two commercially available HbA1c point-of-care test. Methods: The study was conducted in an urban and a rural outpatient clinic in central India. We compared HbA1c estimated from two index tests (Hemocue Hb501, Sweden; SD Biosensor, South Korea) from capillary blood samples and compared it with HPLC, as a reference standard in an independent and a blinded manner. We estimated diagnostic accuracy of the index tests as compared to the reference standard. Results: The area under Reciever Operating Curve (ROC) for

Background:. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in breath have been reported as biomarkers of breast cancer and abnormal mammograms, apparently resulting from increased oxidative stress and cytochrome p450 induction. We evaluated a six-minute point-of-care breath VOC assay at three breast cancer screening centers in USA and the Netherlands.. Methods:. 244 women had a screening mammogram (93/37 normal/abnormal) or a breast biopsy (cancer/no cancer 35/79). A mobile point-of-care system collected and concentrated breath and air VOCs for analysis with gas chromatography and surface acoustic wave detection. Chromatograms were segmented into a time series of alveolar gradients (breath minus room air). Segmental alveolar gradients were ranked as candidate biomarkers by C-statistic value (area under curve [AUC] of receiver operating characteristic [ROC] curve). Multivariate predictive algorithms were constructed employing significant biomarkers identified with multiple Monte Carlo simulations and ...
This thesis presents technological advancements in microfluidics. The overall goals of the work are to develop new miniaturized tests for point-of-care diagnostics and robust super-lubricating surfaces for friction reduction. To achieve these goals, novel materials, surfaces and manufacturing methods in microfluidics have been developed.. Point-of-care diagnostic tests are portable miniaturized instruments that downscale and automate medical tests previously performed in the central laboratories of hospitals. The instruments are used in the doctors office, in the emergency room or at home as self-tests. By bringing the analysis closer to the patient, the likelihood of an accurate diagnosis, or a quick therapy adjustment is increased. Already today, there are point-of-care tests available on the market, for example blood glucose tests, rapid streptococcus tests and pregnancy tests. However, for more advanced diagnostic tests, such as DNA-tests or antibody analysis, integration of microfluidic ...
High prevalence rates of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) have been reported in Aboriginal people in remote and regional areas of Australia for well over two decades, and repeat positivity rates are high. To interrupt disease transmission and reduce the risk of complications, early diagnosis and treatment is important. However in many remote and regional areas there are long delays between testing for these curable sexually transmissible infections and providing treatment, due to both physical distance from laboratories and difficulties when recalling patients for subsequent management once results are available. Point-of-care (POC) tests have the potential to provide more timely diagnosis, to increase treatment and contact tracing, and in turn reduce CT and NG infection rates. TTANGO (Test, Treat, ANd GO) is a cross-over cluster randomised controlled trial in 12 regional or remote Australian health services, which predominantly provide clinical services to Aboriginal people.

The results of HPV detection in 550 cervical samples by cervical cytology were compared with the sequencing analysis and HPV genotyping 9G membrane test. The HPV genotyping 9G membrane test can efficiently identify and discriminate five HR-HPV genotypes. The 100% identical results of HPV genotyping 9G membrane tests with the sequencing results in 550 clinical samples ensure its wide clinical applicability. The simple handling steps and the portable scanning device make the HPV genotyping 9G membrane test applicable in point-of-care settings. Moreover, the HPV genotyping 9G membrane test allows one to obtain final results in 30 min at 25 °C by simply loading the hybridization and washing solution and scanning the membranes without any drying steps or special handling. The clinical sensitivity and specificity of the HPV genotyping 9G membrane test was found to be 100%, which is much higher than cervical cytology.

This had potential benefits of reducing duration of infection and risk of transmission to sexual partners.. In stark contrast, CT/NG results were available in time for only a fifth of patients, with GeneXpert processing times too long to impact on the majority of patients clinical care, a finding consistent with previous ...
INTRODUCTION: Patients on intravenous heparin require regular activated partial thromboplastin time monitoring. Laboratory-based activated partial thromboplastin time assays necessitate a delay between blood sampling and dose adjustment. Point-of-care testing could permit immediate dose adjustments, potentially enabling tighter control of anticoagulation. AIM: To assess equivalence of activated partial thromboplastin time measured by conventional laboratory assay and by a novel proprietary point-of-care testing system (Hemochron Response, ITC, Thoratec Corporation, Edison, NJ) among surgical ward patients on intravenous heparin. METHODS: A total of 39 blood samples from patients on intravenous heparin were tested with both laboratory and point-of-care assays. Assay equivalence was assessed by Bland-Altman analysis. Results. Point-of-care measurements exceeded laboratory activated partial thromboplastin time by a mean of 15 seconds (standard deviation 19). In 19 cases (49%), the point-of-care measurement

OjoGel technology may allow for faster identification of serious eye injuries, Labriola said. With a rapid point-of-care device such as this, anyone in an emergency department could perform a test and know within minutes if the patient needs urgent surgery to save their vision.. Ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, is found in high concentrations in the fluid inside the eye, called aqueous humor, but normally has very low concentration in tears.. Deep damage to the cornea from trauma or incisional surgery releases aqueous humor into the tear film, which increases the concentration of ascorbic acid in tears to a measurably higher level than that found in normal eyes, said Pan, who is also affiliated with the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at Illinois. OjoGel offers a unique biosensing technique that provides an effective and simple method for testing ascorbic acid in a point-of-care delivery system, Pan added..

The current situation in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Universitas Academic Hospital, Bloemfontein, is that all neonates undergo a daily routine X-ray (XR) (either chest or abdominal, or both). Those neonates who are intubated are X-rayed more often, for example, with reintubation, repositioning of endotracheal tubes (ETTs) or when deterioration of their condition is noted. This has been our NICU policy for many years. Consequently, neonates are exposed to high levels of radiation, which should be reduced where possible.. A literature search suggested that a study to determine the position of an ETT using bedside ultrasonography (BUS) would be feasible and possible. Several studies have confirmed that BUS can accurately determine the placing of ETTs in a paediatric ICU setting.[1-3] Ultrasound (US) and chest radiography agreed on ETT placement in 83% of cases, with US having a sensitivity of 91% and a specificity of 50%.[4] Hosseini et al.[5] used right subcostal US with good ...
The patient was admitted to the obstetric service and started on broad-spectrum antibiotics for incomplete septic abortion. She underwent a vacuum-assisted dilation and curettage with removal of uterine contents. Surgical pathology revealed degenerating and focal necrotic chorionic villi consistent with intra-uterine pregnancy. While rare in developed countries, septic abortion is a life-threatening infection of the placenta and fetus of a previable pregnancy typically associated with unsafe abortion practices.1 Diagnosis is made clinically and confirmed by ultrasound, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging that can show an enlarged uterus with hemorrhage, retained intrauterine material, free fluid, abscess formation and/or air. 2 Intrauterine air is theorized to arise from gas-forming organisms or secondary to perforation from unsafe abortion practices. The ultrasonographic finding of air in the uterus must be recognized by the emergency physician in order to expedite ED and ...
Emergency Medicine residents at CHUK in Kigali, Rwanda experienced the glory of friendly competition in Point of Care Ultrasound in the first ever edition of Pass and Play. As a visiting fellow working with PURE, I had the opportunity to lecture to the residency during conference days every Wednesday. Instead of image review, I created a competition for the residents inspired by similar competitions in the US. A cross between jeopardy and plain old pimping, the residents divided into teams by classes and were challenged to cases with ultrasound acquisition and image interpretation. Across the board there was excellent performance, including the 1st year residents who have had quite limited exposure to point of care ultrasound. Despite my attempts to stump the 3rd year residents, they were an unstoppable force. The final jeopardy question was unanticipated by the group since it reverted back to the basics of physics in ultrasound. A senior resident came through at the last moment to explain ...

The recent revolution in digital technologies and information processing methods present important opportunities to transform the way optical imaging is performed, particularly toward improving the throughput of microscopes while at the same time reducing their relative cost and complexity. Lensfree computational microscopy is rapidly emerging toward this end, and by discarding lenses and other bulky optical components of conventional imaging systems, and relying on digital computation instead, it can achieve both reflection and transmission mode microscopy over a large field-of-view within compact, cost-effective and mechanically robust architectures. Such high throughput and miniaturized imaging devices can provide a complementary toolset for telemedicine applications and point-of-care diagnostics by facilitating complex and critical tasks such as cytometry and microscopic analysis of e.g., blood smears, Papanicolaou (Pap) tests and tissue samples. In this article, the basics of these lensfree ...

Ramin Artang, MD, discusses a University of Nebraska Medical Center study aimed at improving monitoring of NOACs. NOACs were initially thought to not require monitoring, however the practice of anticoagulating a patient requires some level of monitoring to ensure therapy is not only safe but is also effective. Evaluating outcomes alone in an anticoagulated patient is insufficient, particularly when the patient is having or could have an adverse event. There are many commercial approaches to monitoring NOACs, with the newest technology being TEG6S. The advantage of TEG6S is primarily that it is a point-of-care assay. With this assay, a clinician can know within 10 minutes whether a patient is in the sub- or supra- therapeutic range with a NOAC drug. , TV Network
Infectious diseases are the leading causes of death around the world. Point-of-care devices using nucleic acid amplification are sensitive enough to diagnose these diseases, however, often require complex and time-intensive sample preparation steps that are not integrated with the detection process. A rapid, sensitive, and integrated sample-to-result diagnostic device will permit disease treatment planning at the point-of-care. Paper-based detection assays are a promising platform to integrate the sample preparation and detection, with minimal infrastructure, equipment, and user involvement. To integrate sample preparation with detection on paper-based assays, timing and delivery of sample fluid flow needs to be controlled. Here we use thermally responsive materials (e.g. wax) to create a micro valve on a nitrocellulose membrane in order to automate fluid flow and minimize user involvement. The ease-of-fabrication, lot-to-lot variability and consistency of the dispensing methods are compared. After

We analysed the antigens in the VL serodiagnostics development pipeline to identify shortcomings and to propose strategies in the development of an alternative POC test for VL in East Africa.ObjectivesThe objective of this study was to identify and to analyse all antigens for VL serodiagnosis that have been published before 2018 in order to identify candidates and gaps in the pipeline for a new POC test in East Africa.MethodsA systematic literature search was performed on PubMed for ...
Methods First, an item-reduction analysis of the TULIA (48 gestures) was performed, based on the methods of classical test theory and on a larger sample of patients with stroke (n=133) and matched healthy controls (n=50). Stepwise elimination of items resulted in a set of 12 items, demonstrating high internal consistency (Cronbach alpha=0.92). The six-point scoring method of the TULIA was dichotomised to the score levels pass and fail. In the second part of this study the validity of the AST was assessed prospectively in a new cohort of patients with stroke (n=31) by using the Pearson correlation analysis and binary classification display with the TULIA. ...
BACKGROUND: Salmonella enterica can significantly impact management of animal facilities. Comprehensive screening is essential for effective control in high-risk populations. Availability of reliable point-of-care diagnostic tests would facilitate these efforts.

ANIMALS: n/a. METHODS: In an experimental study, 112 S. enterica isolates were randomly selected from the 10 most common serotypes recovered at a veterinary hospital. Archived isolates were amplified in broth and standardized inocula (100 colony forming units) were incubated with equine feces in tetrathionate broth (TET). Cultures were tested in a blinded fashion by using LFIs, DNAH, qPCR, and culture. RESULTS: The LFIs detected 84% and 67% of isolates, respectively, but reactivity varied among ...
AUTHORS: Kim, Won Ho MD, PhD et al. Anesthesia & Analgesia: May, 2017. BACKGROUND: Although point-of-care (POC) analyzers are commonly used during liver transplantation (LT), the accuracy of hematocrit measurement using a POC analyzer has not been evaluated. In this retrospective observational study, we aimed to evaluate the accuracy of hematocrit measurement using a POC analyzer and identify potential contributors to the measurement error and their influence on mistransfusion during LT.. METHODS: We retrospectively collected 6461 pairs of simultaneous intraoperative hematocrit measurements using POC analyzers and laboratory devices during LTs in 901 patients. The agreement of hematocrit measurements was assessed using Bland-Altman analysis for repeated measurements, while the incidence and magnitude of hematocrit measurement error were compared among 16 different laboratory abnormality categories. A generalized estimating equation analysis was performed to identify potential contributors to ...
Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a point-of-care device for detecting the Zika virus for under $2 a pop. Its about the size of a can of coke and can be operated by just about anyone, and even outside the clinic. A patient simply spits into the receptacle and after a while a paper test strip changes its color to a shade of blue if a Zika virus is detected.. Previously available tests either take a lot of time, produce too many false negatives, or require expensive equipment that limit their usability. RT-PCR, particularly, works well but requires precise sample management to amplify the DNA.. The new test uses a technique called loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) to grow the viral DNA. One problem of applying LAMP in the past has been developing so-called primers, short DNA strings that complement the DNA of the viral target. The researchers used computational techniques to identify spots on the Zika DNA that are unique to that virus, which were integrated ...

The most commonly used test for monitoring heparin therapy is the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT). The response of available aPTT reagents to heparin varies significantly. The aim of this study was to highlight the differences between aPTT reagents stored in a dried format to select the most suitable formulations to be used for the development of point-of-care diagnostic devices used for monitoring of unfractionated heparin dose response. METHODS: Ten reagents were analysed in terms of their performance in liquid and in dried form after storage for 24 h and 14 days. Performance was assessed by measurement of the clotting time (CT) as evidenced by the onset of thrombin formation using a chromogenic thrombin substrate in plasma samples activated with these formulations. RESULTS: Reagents in all of the three forms tested (liquid, 24 h and 14 days) resulted in significant shortening of CTs in comparison with the nonactivated plasma CT. Liquids returned more rapid CTs in comparison with dried

Over-diagnosis of malaria among African children results in mismanagement of non-malaria infections. Limited laboratory capacity makes it difficult to implement policies that recommend pre-treatment confirmation of infections so a new approach with a package for on-the-spot management of fevers was evaluated. Febrile children presenting to outpatient clinic were randomized to receive either a test-treat package (history with clinical examination; point-of-care tests; choice of artesunate-amodiaquine, co-amoxiclav and/or paracetamol) or routine outpatient care in a secondary health care facility in Kumasi, Ghana. A diagnosis of malaria, bacterial, viral or mixed malarial and bacterial infections was made using pre-defined criteria. Outcome was resolution of all symptoms including fever on day 7. The median age of the patients was 37.5 months (IQR: 19 to 66 months), with 56.7% being males. Compared to routine care the test-treat package resulted in less diagnoses of malaria, (37.2% vs 46.2%, p = ...
Increasing U.S. testing capabilities. While the FDA will no longer accept EUAs for LDTs, it will still continue to review requests for point-of-care tests, home collection tests, and any other tests that may alleviate national shortages. This includes high-throughput, widely distributed tests, as the Administration hopes to increase the countrys overall testing capacity and accessibility.. The FDA stated: We are currently in a different phase of the pandemic with respect to tests than we were previously, where many COVID-19 tests are now authorized to be run in labs. We prioritize review of EUA requests for tests taking into account a variety of factors, including those discussed in the Emergency Use Authorization of Medical Products and Related Authorities Guidance, such as the public health need for the product and the availability of the product.. Updates on 3D printed swabs. Within the new FAQs, the FDA has advised on which specimen types can be swab tested. As it stands, this includes ...

With point-of-care testing, the ED doctor sustains workflow efficiency. POCT enables workflow efficiency through quick delivery of results and ease of staff workload.
Author Summary In tropical Africa, clinical laboratories capable of performing complicated diagnostic studies like PCR are rare and are almost always found in large cities. Moreover, a number of infectious diseases, many of them are emerging and neglected, may be quickly and reliably diagnosed only by molecular biology. This is one of the reasons why the repertoire of bacterial infectious diseases in tropical Africa is poorly known. The laboratory based on the Point-of-Care (POC) principle has been designed in order to resolve the time lag between test results and patient care, which is the critical point for the treatment. We report here the first successful experience of the installation of POC laboratory in rural Senegal. During the first year of the study (February 2011 to January 2012) we identified DNA from at least one pathogenic bacterium in 80/440 (18.2%) of the samples from febrile patients. In most of the cases it was relapsing fever and rickettsiosis agents. Malaria was diagnosed in 54 cases
Diagnostic Laboratory The laboratory plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of drug-resistant TB. Test results must be available in a time frame that allows clinicians to make prompt patient management decisions. Many laboratory techniques used to confirm a TB diagnosis and to identify drug resistance were developed in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Substantial improvements have been made in culture techniques and in rapid methods in the past decade. However, these more accurate, rapid, and sophisticated methods have not been implemented widely, particularly in regions of the world where MDR TB and XDR TB are common and optimized algorithms for providing rapid point-of-care laboratory confirmation of TB and detection of drug resistance have not been established. To combat the growing problem of resistance to TB drugs, the most current methods need to be applied to their fullest capacity while better diagnostic tests are developed. The needs of the TB laboratory must be addressed to ...
SARS-CoV-2 serology tests detect antibodies to SARS-CoV-2: these appear about 12 days after the onset of acute infection using immunofluorescence techniques, and include SARS-CoV-2 specific IgG, IgM and IgA. Serology is generally not indicated in the diagnosis of acute symptomatic COVID-19 infection. Its main use is for the retrospective diagnosis of COVID-19 disease, or in sero-epidemiological studies to determine infection rates in the community. Ideally acute (at clinical presentation) and convalescent (three or more weeks after clinical presentation) serum collection is required for the retrospective diagnosis of COVID-19 disease.. Reliable automated SARS-CoV-2 serology tests are not yet in widespread use. Various rapid point-of-care finger prick assays for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies have been used, but their sensitivity and specificity remain uncertain. In general, they are less sensitive and specific than enzyme immunoassays, immunofluorescence or virus neutralisation.. Sample collection The ...
