More Information about the D-Dimer Test Kit
AccuQuik™ promotes the use of D-Dimer Test Kit.
Available as cassette
D-Dimer Test Kit diagnostic test detects circulating derivatives of cross-linked degradation products (CL-FDP) qualitative or semi-quantitatively in human plasma, whole blood, EDTA-blood and citrated blood by means of color development. The test kit is used in the diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in order to help in the diagnosis of Thrombosis. D-Dimer tests are generally used if Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or Pulmonary Embolism (PE) is suspected. The AccuQuikTM D-Dimer Test Kit is simple to use with excellent precision. The test kit can aid in exclusion of healthy patients with higher certainty so healthcare providers can spend more time on patients who are actually ill. The test result can be observed after 10 minutes. AccuQuik™ promotes the use of D-Dimer Test Kit.
D-dimer is normally undetectable or found normally at a very low level in the bloodstream. When blood clot occurs, the level of D-dimer protein fragments increases as it is dissolved in the body. The use of D-dimer test is most prominent in exclusion of individuals with highly unlikely condition to have blood clotting (thrombosis). Further diagnostic is required when a positive result occurs to diagnose a blood clot formation. One of the most common inappropriate blood clot formation is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), wherein clot formation occurs frequently in the lower legs and might grow large and cause pulmonary embolisms (PE). D-dimer could also aid in diagnosis disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), wherein tiny blood clots cause an affected person vulnerable to excessive bleeding. DIC is complex and could be life-threatening.
DVT can be treated in multiple ways, most important part of the treatment is to stop the blood clot from getting bigger and heading toward the lungs. Medications that work as blood thinners (thrombolytics) are the most common medications to treat DVT. However, the have serious side effects and thus not prescribed very often. Another way of DVT treatment is the insertion of a small, cone-shaped filter inside the inferior vena cave. The filter works to catch a large clot before reaching the lungs. Lastly, a compression stocking could be used to prevent bloods from pooling in the veins of your lower body (up to the knees). There is no specific treatment for DIC, treatment of the underlying cause must be administered. Supportive treatments for DIC may include plasma transfusions and blood thinners medication.
