Beckman Coulter 33715 Access Digoxin Calibrator (Digoxin Test) Specifications:

Beckman Coulter 33715 Access Digoxin Calibrator (Digoxin Test) : INTENDED USE

The Access Digoxin Calibrators are intended to calibrate the Digoxin assay for the quantitative determination of digoxin levels in human serum using the Access Immunoassay Systems.

Beckman Coulter 33715 Access Digoxin Calibrator (Digoxin Test) : SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION

Quantitative assay calibration is the process by which samples with known analyte concentrations (i.e., assay calibrators) are tested like patient samples to measure the response. The mathematical relationship between the measured responses and the known analyte concentrations establishes the calibration curve. This mathematical relationship, or calibration curve, is used to convert RLU (Relative Light Unit) measurements of patient samples to specific quantitative analyte concentrations.

What is a digoxin test?

A digoxin test is a blood test that your doctor can use to determine the level of the medication digoxin in your blood. Digoxin is a drug of the cardiac glycoside group. People take it to treat heart failure and irregular heartbeats.

Digoxin is available in oral form. Your body absorbs it, and it then travels to your body’s tissues, especially your heart, kidney, and liver.

Your doctor performs digoxin testing to make sure that you aren’t receiving too much or too little of the drug. Your doctor should monitor the level of digoxin in your blood because the drug has a narrow safe range.

Digoxin is a potentially poisonous chemical if you take it in large amounts or over a long period in incorrect doses. It’s important for your doctor to check the amount of digoxin in your blood regularly while you’re taking the drug.

Young children and older adults are at an especially high risk fortoxicity, or digoxin overdose.

It’s also important for your doctor to monitor the levels of digoxin in your system because the symptoms of digoxin overdose can be similar to the symptoms of the heart condition that caused you to need the drug in the first place.

Your doctor will likely order several digoxin tests when you first start using the drug to establish the appropriate dose. Your doctor should continue to order the tests at regular intervals for as long as you’re taking the drug. They should also order the tests if they suspect you’re receiving too much or too little of the medication.

 

 

 

 

If the level of digoxin in your system is too low, you may experience the symptoms of heart failure. These symptoms include:

  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath
  • edema, or swelling in your hands and feet

If the level of the drug in your system is too high, you may have symptoms of an overdose. These typically include:

  • dizziness
  • seeing yellow or green halos around objects
  • nausea
  • diarrhea
  • vomiting
  • difficulty breathing
  • irregular heartbeats
  • confusion
  • abdominal pain
