Implementation, validation and review of a critical values list in a cardiac emergency room

Conclusion: Clinical laboratories must be responsible for the implementation, validation and review of their CVL to ensure patients’ health. Introdução: Valores críticos (VC) laboratoriais podem ser indicativos de condições de risco de morte que requerem intervenção clínica rápida. O objetivo deste estudo foi implantar, validar e revisar uma lista de valores críticos (LVC) no Pronto-Socorro Cardiológico Universitário de Pernambuco-Universidade de Pernambuco (PROCAPE-UPE). Método: Este trabalho foi realizado no período de 2011 a 2013. Para elaborar a LVC, os testes laboratoriais realizados no PROCAPE foram analisados e comparados com os dos jornais da Federação Internacional de Química Clínica e Medicina Laboratorial (IFCC) e do Colégio Americano de Patologistas (CAP). Após a elaboração da LVC, ela foi validada por médicos; treinamentos e procedimento operacional padrão foram desenvolvidos abrangendo todo o laboratório de análises clínicas, com o intuito de formalizar o procedimento de comunicação de resultados críticos. A LVC foi revisada a cada seis meses. Resultados: Foram realizadas modificações nos intervalos de VC na dosagem de cálcio sérico total, sódio sérico, potássio sérico, no índice intern...

However, the effect of MW radiation on human skin biology is not well understood. We study the effects of pulsed high-power microwaves (HPMs) on melanoma (G361 and SK-Mel-31) and normal human dermal fibroblast (NHDF) cells. A pulsed power generator (Chundo...

Resting state functional connectivity (RSFC) has been widely studied in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and is observed by a significant temporal correlation of spontaneous low-frequency signal fluctuations (SLFs) both within and across hemispheres during rest. Different hypotheses of RSFC include the biophysical origin hypothesis and cognitive origin hypothesis, which show that the role of SLFs and RSFC is still not completely understood. Furthermore, RSFC and age studies have shown an “age-related compensation” phenomenon. RSFC data analysis methods include time domain analysis, seed-based correl...
