SUPPORTING HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS WITH POCT

increased patient volume IN THE ED and ICU can create CHALLENGES FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS  

Healthcare facilities are being challenged with increased patient volume and the need for continued monitoring of blood gases in respiratory care patients. 

FACILITATE REAL-TIME DECISIONS IN DIVERSE SETTINGS TO OPTIMIzE PATIENT CARE

While the i-STAT System does not have a test to diagnose coronavirus, the i-STAT System offers test cartridges that provide fast results which can assist in the early identification of deteriorating health in patients and can help to identify patients that are critically ill. Hospitalized patients are often nursed in isolation units in the ICU. The handheld nature of the i‑STAT 1 analyzer means blood testing can be performed at the patient’s bedside potentially reducing the risk of contamination and cross-infection.
