The purpose of this study is to use an investigational device called the Atellica® VTLi™ test system to test a substance in your blood called troponin that may help with the diagnosis of a heart attack
You are being asked to participate in a research study because you have been diagnosed or are suspected of having COVID-19 infection. The reason for this study is to collect nasal swabs from people diagnosed or suspected of having the 2019-nCoV (coronavirus) to use in the future to possibly help make new tests for detecting this virus, and/or make current tests better.
A company called Becton Dickinson & Company, the sponsor of the study, is paying for this study. Becton Dickinson & Company is also paying the study doctor to do this study.Approximately 2000 people will be enrolled across the US.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an accurate blood glucose (blood sugar level) result can be obtained from venous (vein), arterial (artery), capillary (finger) and neonatal heel stick blood samples by Point of Care users within both critically ill and non-critically ill study populations.
This is a prospective, multicenter clinical trial for individuals presenting to the Emergency Department with suspicion of acute heart failure. A blood sample collected will be used to compare the standard of care BNP test used at the local site to the investigational assay from Beckman Coulter (sponsor).
The diagnosis and treatment of patients at each site will use an FDA-cleared BNP or NT-proBNP assay under the site's standard of care and NOT the investigational assay.
