Research on the recovery from operations has led to the visualisation of the Acute Phase Response and the development of the APEX Score in collaboration with Attomarker Ltd. A new app has been written to collect data to test the APEX ideas and introduce four new markers of recovery: the Acute Phase Response (APR), the APEX Score, APEX Hours and an 8-hr prediction of the serum CRP levels.
The APEX research app has been released by Attomaker to crowd-source data from existing physiological tests and asses the performance the new recovery markers.
Aims and Objectives
The project is looking at 4 new measures of recovery derived from the acute phase response and to crowd-source data prospectively:
- Assess the APEX Score.
- Asses the 8hr-prediction of serum CRP concentrations.
