Inflammatory Biomarkers and Clinical Judgment in the Emergency Diagnosis of Urgent Abdominal Pain Clinical Chemistry Podcast

    • Chemistry

Acute abdominal pain is one of the most common presenting symptoms in emergency department patients and its differential diagnosis can be extensive and challenging.  Rapid and accurate diagnosis of urgent causes of abdominal pain is essential for the early initiation of effective therapy and efficient patient flow. To see how the clinical laboratory can help in this process, a recent study that appeared in the February 2019 issue of Clinical Chemistry examined inflammatory biomarkers in the emergency diagnosis of urgent abdominal pain.
