The results are reviewed by the doctor and, in case of high values, establish the treatment with e.g. antibiotics. The reliability and the speed of this test makes further blood tests unnecessary, treatment can start in the shortest possible time and the usage of antibiotics reduced only to justified cases, preventing in that way the possibility of antibiotics resistance.
