This includes the development of a level of competency in their decision making about the implementation of proper corrective actions when monitoring reveals violation of the critical limit
The possibility that a hazard will occur increases significantly when a critical limit
Of the 44 patients who died during the four-year study period, 40 had known CD4 levels below the critical limit
within the six months prior to death, the researchers say.
Their extremely low densities mean that they are at the critical limit
The easiest way to appreciate the legal principles that unfold when there is an adverse outcome related to critical limits
is to consider that you, the reader, could be called to task and required to explain during deposition or to a jury: a) each and every detail of your critical values policy and each entry on your critical limit
list; b) the rationale and consensus process by which you selected them; and c) the manner in which they were originally derived, implemented, updated, changed, and practiced in your hospital setting or in point-of-contact areas.
Establish corrective actions to be taken when monitoring indicates that there is a deviation from an established critical limit
17) Of note, a survey of the North American Specialized Coagulation Laboratory Association in 201118 documented an International Normalized Ratio (INR) critical limit
HACCP involves seven principles: analyze hazards; identify critical control points; establish preventive measures with critical limits
for each control point; establish procedures to monitor the critical control points; establish corrective actions to be taken when a critical limit
has not been met; establish procedures to verify that the system is working properly; and establish effective recordkeeping.
We determined the critical limit
and the detection limit of our assay as suggested by the IUPAC guidelines based on statistical calculations (18).
HAACP outlines preventive measures (such as minimum cooking temperatures) for each control point, requires procedures and instrumentation to monitor those control points, and prescribes corrective actions for when a critical limit
is not met.
Designing critical limit
systems for knowledge optimization.
Although transfusion in most of our patients might have been indicated, values that trigger emergency transfusion and the low hemoglobin critical limit
value need not be identical (10).
