Could the signs of early disease be hidden within a seemingly normal total calcium? Join us to learn more about when and why to measure ionized calcium (iCa) versus total calcium, the biological activity of iCa, and how it could lead to an earlier diagnosis of chronic disease.
Explain to a client how measurement of ionized calcium can be more clinically helpful than evaluation of total calcium on a routine biochemical panel
Contrast how measurement of iCa can generate different results depending on sample handling and between in-house or send-out to a reference laboratory
Diagnose the cause of hypercalcemia as arising from IHC, malignancy, hyperparathyroidism or hypervitaminosis D
