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 (under review - please contact the laboratory on 9287 7700 for latest information).
