Risk Stratification Of Syncope in the Emergency department

Aim

To develop and validate a Clinical Decision Rule using history, examination, electrocardiographic and biochemical markers, to predict one month outcome for patients presenting with syncope to the Emergency Department

Trial Design

Single-centre, prospective, observational cohort study,  conducted in the Emergency Department (ED) of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Diagnostics devices play an important part in the clinical assessment of a patient’s health and treatment. The purpose of the study is the evaluation of a new diagnostic platform developed by LumiraDx. The evaluation is focused around various biomarkers useful in the emergency settings.

NOVEL Study

Collection of venous and capillary blood samples for the evaluation of new diagnostic devices for cardiovascular conditions

People who develop an Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) often have a poor prognosis and many go on to develop chronic kidney disease (CKD). The recognition that AKI and CKD are linked is recent and the molecular pathways that control the transition from acute injury to chronic disease are not well defined. Currently there are no specific treatments that reduce the risk of progressing to CKD after AKI.

Preliminary investigations (not yet published) suggest that AKI causes sustained activation of the endothelin (ET) system to the long-term detriment of renal and systemic haemodynamic function. These pilot data form the basis of our project that seeks to determine whether the ET system is active in patients with AKI and, thus, represents a potential target for therapeutic intervention.

KRAKIL aims to recruit altogether 100 patients from across the emergency department, acute medical unit and inpatient wards at the Royal Infirmary. 50 of which with AKI’s and 50 matched controls with normal kidney function. We will monitor their bloods and urine for 90 days and compare the data from between the two groups.
