The Clinical Need
Real-time point-of-care measurement of renal function will improve patient outcomes in the ICU and the operating suite and achieve optimal dosing strategies for nephrotoxic drug interventions such as chemotherapeutics and imaging contrast agents.
Current Clinical Practice
Current clinical practice for determining renal function is measurement of creatinine in the patient’s blood serum. Serum creatinine concentration rises post kidney insult, however there are several issues that make this practice much less than optimal.
The MediBeacon Solution
