APH COVID-19 initiative: Validation of the Roth Score test in hypoxia among patients with possible COVID-19 infection in a pre-hospital setting

The Roth Score test is a short test to assess the intensity of hypoxia. APH researcher Ralf Harskamp and colleagues from the Amsterdam UMC try to validate this test. They hope that this will give useful insights in the scientific knowledge of the next wave of COVID-19 in the future. To validate their instrument, they are looking for general practitioners, geriatric specialists, ambulance personnel and emergency physicians.
