FAQs

Some of frequent questions are below, but if you have any other questions about the eGFR-C study please contact the study team.

If a potential participant has a history of alcohol or drug abuse but it has stopped, are they excluded from the study?

No, if the alcohol or drug abuse is not a current problem then the patient can be included in the study.

When recording the time that the iohexol infusion is administered, what time should be used – the start or the finish?

The mid-point of the infusion should be recorded, although we will shortly add fields for recording both start and finish times on the CRF to automatically calculate the mid-point.

What should I do if our study blood pressure monitor has a problem?

The monitors are guaranteed until 17th February 2017. Before then it can be replaced – this should be arranged through Gillian Eaglestone, eGFR-C Lead Research Nurse (geaglestone@nhs.net).
