United Medical Equipment Business Solutions Network is a company focused on the needs of aging patients and veteran communities as well as those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. United is a trusted supplier of FDA-approved antibody and antigen test kits, medical equipment and personal protective equipment (“PPE”). As the world attempts to control this pandemic, it is essential to quickly identify who is infected and who has already been infected. Antibody testing determines whether or not a patient has had COVID-19 in the past while antigen testing determines whether or not a patient currently has COVID-19.
An antibody test can help determine how many people have had and recovered from COVID-19. This includes those that were asymptomatic. Since individuals are presenting various symptoms, ranging from no symptoms to full respiratory failure, symptoms alone cannot accurately confirm if someone has been infected. Antibody tests have limited use in detection but help to determine accurate case numbers and research into immunity.
The antigen rapid test allows for quick diagnosis that can help curb the spread of the virus. Antigens are a specific protein that sits on the surface of the virus. These rapid tests identify antigens when the individual is contagious. That individual can then be placed into quarantine, stopping the spread of the virus (https://ibn.fm/xB6J7).
The FDA-approved CareStart(TM) COVID-19 Antigen Rapid POC test is part of United’s answer in combating the spread of the virus. The test is administered by medical professionals to detect COVID-19 antigens. This test identifies acute infection with 88.4% sensitivity and 100% specificity, and helps provide critical answers about active infections to patients and healthcare workers alike (https://ibn.fm/Q8js4).
United moved quickly to address the growing needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to providing test kits, COVID-19 supplies and products (https://ibn.fm/KgD8i), and PPE equipment with flexible payment options, the company has acted as a trusted senior referral source for independent living, assisted living, hospice, memory care, skilled nursing and senior care centers.
Throughout 2020 and into 2021, the elderly have been particularly vulnerable to this pandemic. United is dedicated to providing guidance for the aging population, their families, and the medical community that serves them.
