Interactive Remote Training (IRT) classes are live, real-time classes that can be viewed online. Users access each training session via a web link, then dial in via phone for audio. Trainees can see and hear the Abbott trainer host a PowerPoint presentation.
As part of the IRT session, the viewer will have the opportunity to see the Abbott trainer and live or recorded demonstrations of the products in use so the trainee will have visibility to the testing products as they are filled and inserted into the instruments. This allows the trainee to observe and interact with the Abbott trainer in a live setting. At the conclusion of each class, the trainer will review FAQs and, as time permits, allow live questions.
There is no need to “sign up” or “pre-register” for a class. At the time of the class, simply choose the class you would like to attend, click on the link and join.
Each class holds a maximum of 100 attendees, so if you join after 100 attendees have already logged in, you will have to attend a class held at a different time. You may attend as many classes as you wish; there are no limitations.
The current standard IRT sessions for i-STAT training focus predominantly on the chemistries and blood gas cartridges, while the Piccolo Xpress will focus on the CMP Rotors.
During each training session, information will be provided concerning proper storing, filling and inserting of the cartridge/rotor into the analyzer.
The Abbott trainer will review which sample types, tubes and syringes are acceptable, best practices for obtaining a proper sample, demonstrate filling and inserting the cartridge into the analyser and will review basic information concerning the analyser. At the conclusion of the IRT class, the trainee can feel confident in performing testing with the instrument on which they were trained.
Software update training sessions focus on how to update the system software for i-STAT 1 analyzers.
There are currently no software update training sessions scheduled. This page will be updated when a new schedule is available.
