Critical Results are defined as results outside critical limits defined by our pathologists, which may indicate a life threatening situation and require immediate notification to the referring doctor. 

Specific procedures are in place in the laboratories to ensure that every effort is made by a scientist or pathologist to contact the referring doctor or other medical practitioner responsible for treating the patient.

Critical Result limits are shown on the attached document (these limits are always being revieved - please contact the laboratory on 9287 7700 for the latest information).
