In trauma cases, operating theatres and intensive care units, it is necessary to instantly know the patient’s hemoglobin value. The HemoCue® Hemoglobin system gives an accurate hemoglobin result in about 60 seconds. Turn-around time can be dramatically reduced, there are potential manpower savings (both in elimination of personnel for transporting samples from unit to lab, and technician time).
In emergency departments, operating rooms, and critical care units, getting accurate glucose values quickly is crucial. Extremes of hematocrit or pO2, as well as various drugs, are common in a critical care environment. These factors are important considerations in choosing a method for measuring glucose.
Easy to use, accurate, and precise, the HemoCue® Glucose systems provide critical care professionals with glucose values that can be trusted.
White Blood Cell (WBC) Count
In Critical Care, the need for quick accurate and reliable results are vital. In Emergency Care quick results are needed in order to be able to refer patients to the appropriate site for treatment and in Intensive Care patient monitoring must be accurate and capable of quickly detecting changes in patient status. An abnormal white blood cell count levels may prompt search for acute infections. In post-operative care, an abnormal white blood cell count level may indicate infections.
