Point-of-care (POC) C-reactive protein (CRP) testing in the primary healthcare setting is a cost-effective approach for reducing antibiotic prescriptions, but has yet to be widely adopted.
Background Although the majority of clinical guidelines indicate the use of NOAC (nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant) over vitamin K antagonist in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation patients, the...
Point of-care (POC) HIV-1 RNA tests which are accurate and easy to use with limited infrastructure are needed in resource-limited settings (RLS). We systematically reviewed evidence of POC test perfor...
Number needed to treat based on real-world evidence for non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants versus vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants in stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) and vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) are used to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). This paper aimed to evaluate the clinical ef...
To measure changes in the matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9) point-of-care test, InflammaDry (Rapid Pathogen Screening, Inc, Sarasota, FL) positivity, based on ocular surface MMP-9 concentrations and ...
This study evaluates the impact of using LabPad® point-of-care to measure International Normalized Ratio (INR) at home on the patient's follow up on vitamine K antagonist (VKA) treatment ...
The investigators study aims to test the correlation between the Cascade Abrazo point-of-care testing (POCT) device (Helena Laboratories, USA) and plasma levels of apixaban, dabigatran and...
The purpose of this study is to develop and validate the accuracy of a low-cost "point-of-care" test (POCT) that allows monitoring of markers for anticoagulation and thrombosis (local coag...
This is an observational, multicenter and cross-sectional study in Non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) elderly patients currently on Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC) ...
To obtain a better understanding on the comparative effectiveness of dabigatran versus Vitamin K antagonist (VKA) for stroke prevention in patients with Non-valvular atrial fibrillation (N...
Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)
Advanced and highly specialized care provided to medical or surgical patients whose conditions are life-threatening and require comprehensive care and constant monitoring. It is usually administered in specially equipped units of a health care facility.
A diagnostic test in which vitamin B12 is tagged with radioactive cobalt, taken orally, and gastrointestinal absorption is determined via measurement of the amount of radioactivity in a 24-hour urine collection.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
Continuous care and monitoring of newborn infants with life-threatening conditions, in any setting.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
