suPARnostic® Quick Triage Test now faster
suPAR Abstract wins 1. prize at DEMC7 Emergency Conference
Data from routine use of suPAR at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark was selected for an oral presentation at DEMC7 in Copenhagen, the biggest Emergency Medicine Conference in northern Europe.
The abstract "suPAR as a standard prognostic test in the Acute Medical Unit at Hvidovre Hospital" presented by PhD student Line Jee Hartmann Rasmussen from Hvidovre Hospital won 1. prize!
Data analysis included more than 17.000 acute medical patients measured with suPAR, to verify the prognostic value of suPAR with regard to readmission and survival.
The conclusion is, that high suPAR was associated with - Increased number and severity of comorbidities - Longer admission time - High readmission rate - High mortality rate
suPAR data from Acute Care published in Emergency Medical Journal
Part of the data presented at DEMC7 was recently published in Emergency Medical Journal in the article “suPAR in Acute Care: A strong marker of disease presence and severity, readmission and mortality. A retrospective cohort study”.
The conclusion is again, that in an unselected population of acute medical patients; "A high suPAR level upon admission to the AMU is a marker of severe disease and increased risk of readmission and mortality after adjusting for all other risk factors .... and suPAR adds information to established prognostic indicators".
The suPARnostic® Quick Triage Test is now even more quick, as the plasma sample only has to be centrifuged for 1 minute for normal blood collection tubes (10 minutes for plasma preparation tubes).
This means that the quantitative result of the Quick TriageTest is now available in approx. 20 minutes, making this a perfect solution for the Emergency Room where a fast result is required, and can even be done without use of the clinical laboratory!
