HemCheck och Region Västmanland i studie om hemolyserade blodgasprov23.1.2018 13:30 | Pressmeddelande
PRESSMEDDELANDE HemCheck och Region Västmanland i studie om hemolyserade blodgasprov Karlstad 23 januari 2018: HemCheck Sweden AB meddelar idag att bolaget tecknat ett avtal med Region Västmanland avseende en studie för att kartlägga förekomsten av hemolys i blodgasprover tagna vid akutmottagningen på Västmanlands Sjukhus i Västerås. Blodgasanalys är ett blodprov som tas rutinmässigt på sjukhus och som är ett centralt verktyg när snabba svar krävs för kritiska diagnoser. Blodgasanalysen påverkas, liksom vanlig blodprovstagning, av hemolys, men i vilken omfattning är ännu inte lika väl dokumenterat. -Idag utförs ingen hemolyskontroll på blodgasprov. Avsikten med studien är att undersöka förekomsten av hemolys i blod som analyserats i blodgasapparater och se om det kan detekteras med hjälp av ett enkelt test. Det är glädjande att vi som ett första steg i det arbetet kan genomföra en så viktig studie ihop med Region Västmanland och Västmanlands Sjukhus Västerås. Vi ser att väl fungerande
