Assessment of Electrolyte Values in the Intensive Care Unit:Comparison Between Arterial and Venous Blood Gas Analysis and Formal Laboratory Testing

2014-08-27 03:47:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study hypothesis is that in critically ill patients there is significant differences between electrolyte levels measured using blood gas analysers and by laboratory techniques, and between levels measured on arterial and venous blood samples.

Description

The sudy hypothesis is that in critically ill patients there is a significant difference between electrolyte levels measured using blood gas analysers and by laboratory techniques, and between levels measured on arterial and venous blood samples.

The study aim is determine the agreement between electrolyte levels measure by formal laboratory serum analysis and point-of-care blood gas analysis.

Also, to determine the agreement between electrolyte levels measured on simultaneous arterial and venous blood samples, using both serum and whole blood samples.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The complete summaries of the frequencies of the values or categories of a measurement made on a group of items, a population, or other collection of data. The distribution tells either how many or what proportion of the group was found to have each value (or each range of values) out of all the possible values that the quantitative measure can have.

Disturbances in the body's WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE.

A statistical analytic technique used with discrete dependent variables, concerned with separating sets of observed values and allocating new values. It is sometimes used instead of regression analysis.

A principle of estimation in which the estimates of a set of parameters in a statistical model are those quantities minimizing the sum of squared differences between the observed values of a dependent variable and the values predicted by the model.

Beliefs and values shared by all members of the organization. These shared values are reflected in the day to day operations of the organization.
