A large number of patients present in Emergency Departments (ED) each year with chest pain. One in eight has a life-threatening disease. Causes for this pain are many; heart, lung, gastrointestinal, bone, muscle and nerve problems. ED physicians require rapid and accurate methods to determine which patients require immediate life saving medical treatment.
Upstream Medical Technologies (UMT) has a novel technology platform built on many years of research. This provides a new class of diagnostic tests designed for ED use. These tests detect life threatening heart and associated diseases. The lead assay can detect imminent heart attack BEFORE tissue damage occurs.
UMT is building a pipeline of tests that enable earlier diagnosis for improved patient recovery.
