NOVA biomedical | Today’s Blood Gas/Critical Care Test Menu Must Include

iMg ePV Urea Creat/eGFR MCHC

Prime Plus provides the most clinical value of any blood gas/critical care analyzer profile by adding essential tests for electrolyte balance (iMg), plasma volume (ePV), kidney function (Urea, Creatinine, eGFR) and differentiating types of anemia (MCHC).

Ionized Magnesium (iMg) Hypomagnesemia is a frequent finding in criticallyill patients.1 Magnesium therapy guided by real time ionized magnesium monitoring has been shown to improve outcome in these patients.2

Estimated Plasma Volume (ePV) The plasma volume status of a patient is one of the top priorities in evaluating and treating critical illness including CHF, ARDS, AKI,Surgery, and Sepsis.3-5

Urea, Creatinine and eGFR Over 50% of patients admitted to the ICU develop some degree of acute kidney injury.6 Creatinine, eGFR, and Urea monitoring provides early indication of changes in kidney function and helps guide therapy to prevent AKI.

MCHC Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) provides insight into chronic low grade blood loss and differentiating types of anemia.
