Daxor Corporation, the global leader in blood volume measurement technology, recently presented new research at the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) Annual Scientific Meeting.
Blood volume analysis (BVA) is an innovative diagnostic test that provides key data on congestion management and anemia in a single test. This allows care teams to understand with precision, the intravascular volume status of heart failure (HF) patients and solve the significant challenge of accurately managing fluid levels and red cell derangements. Best practices for implementation of BVA enable the care team to incorporate testing into both the inpatient and outpatient HF care settings, providing the guidance needed by clinicians to drive improvement in key patient outcomes.
Daxor presented three studies at HFS:
Showed those who received BVA-guided treatment on the day of admission to the hospital had a significant (p <0.001) lower total LOS than controls (2.04 vs. 4.56 days) and significantly improved outcomes (lower 30-day readmissions and 365-day mortality).
Showed a cohort of patients experienced markedly better outcomes vs. controls for 30-day readmissions (12.0% vs. 27.0%, p <.001), 30-day mortality (2.3% vs. 11.8%, p <.001), and 365-day mortality (5.6% vs. 36.8%, p <.001) rates.
Showed there was a discordance between pressure and volume measures in both men and women suggesting preferential response to diuretics to improve congestion in men.
Join MedAxiom and Daxor on Nov. 17 from 1-2 p.m. ET for a webinar on Best Practices for Using Blood Volume Analysis (BVA) to Reduce Heart Failure LOS, Readmissions, Mortality and Costs. This webinar takes a deep dive into the best practices for implementing the innovative diagnostic BVA which has been shown to improve outcomes and reduce the total cost of care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
