A position of trustPatients in intensive care often need constantly monitoring. Since medical status for intensive care patients can change rapidly, accurate and quick test results are needed at all times, also when the hospital laboratory is not accessible. Blood glucose levels need to be monitored constantly for metabolic control and hemoglobin to support transfusion decisions. For the intensive care physician immediate access to accurate test data is invaluable. Having access to accurate point-of-care test results, treatment decisions can be made at the patient’s bedside.
Solutions at hand
The HemoCue point-of-care testing systems can test glucose, hemoglobin and white blood cell count. The systems give immediate results with laboratory accuracy and are unaffected by interference factors commonly associated with critically ill patients. With these systems at hand, you can monitor glycemic status, make transfusion decisions and have an early detection of infections.
• Determination of glycemic status
• Detection of anemia and internal bleeding
• Indication of general infections
