Data presented in NeuroCritic Care society 19e Annual meeting 2021
Data show changes in diagnosis of Daxor in 69% of patients With No-Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (nSAH)
NEW YORK, November 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Daxor company (NYSE MKT: DXR), Global Leader in Blood Volume Measurement Technology, Today Announces New Data Demonstrating the Clinical Utility of the BVA-100 Blood Test in Patients with Non-traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (NSAH) Presented at the Virtual NeuroCritical Care Society (NCS) 19e Annual meeting.
The study “The Influence of Blood Volume Analysis on the Clinical Management of Nontraumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage” investigated whether intravascular volume assessments would influence clinical decision making in nSAH. The data showed that 69% responded with different management strategies after receiving the BVA results. Lindsey Carvalho MD, Principal Investigator, concluded: “All participants indicated a preference for AVB over invasive hemodynamic monitoring if they had the option to monitor volume status in nSAH due to the lesser nature. invasive from the first. “
Previous research presented to NCS in 2020 titled “Blood Volume Analysis in the Management of Volume Status in Nontraumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage,” investigated whether BVA would change clinical practice guidelines for the management of nSAH to prevent delayed cerebral ischemia (CDI) during high-risk periods. Of the completed BVA tests, 54% resulted in a change in treatment management after interpretation of the BVA test results.
“Non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage can cause complicated and irreversible neurological damage and achieving optimal intravascular volume plays an important role in improving patient outcomes,” said Michael Feldschuh, CEO and President of Daxor Corporation. “These new data further demonstrate that Daxor’s unique blood volume measurement helps physicians effectively determine treatment options for managing water disorders for these critically ill patients and is the driving force behind this test for standard clinical practice. “
Previous data in the area of ICU surgical management have shown an equally high level of BVA-100 testing leading to a change in treatment strategy. In a randomized controlled trial (RCT) published in the journal Shock, the BVA-100 test was shown to reduce ICU mortality by 66% (P = 0.03) and on ventilation days in patients with predominantly acute respiratory distress syndrome and septic shock. Additionally, analysis showed that 44% of BVA test results led to a change in treatment strategy (P = 0.004) that healthcare teams would not have made without the condition measurement data. of the BVA volume.
