Magnesium

Test Code: 622

Methodology: Spectrophotometry (SP)

Clinical Significance: Magnesium measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of hypomagnesemia (abnormally low plasma levels of magnesium) and hypermagnesemia (abnormally high plasma levels of magnesium). Magnesium is decreased in chronic nephritis, acute pancreatitis, and alcoholic cirrhosis. It is increased in acute or chronic renal failure and Addison's Disease.

Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Culture Screen

Test Code: 90417

Methodology: Chrom Aagar method

Reference Range(s): No Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolated.

Clinical Significance: MRSA is a major cause of nosocomial and life-threatening infections. Infections with MRSA have been associated with a significantly high morbidity, mortality and cost. Selection of these organisms has been greatest in the health care setting. However, MRSA has also become more prevalent in the community.
