Establishing laboratory clinical analysis values to be considered critical

Critical analysis results may expose a life-threatening pathological state of the patient if the right measures are not taken in a timely manner. Labs from all over the world have difficulties to determine such precise numbers.

The availability of standardised critical values will increase the safety of patients. Moreover, universal standards generally triggers a better satisfaction level of clinicians, with a relevant impact on the quality of their work.
