Patients at the hospital department of pediatrics are treated for surgical treatment or medical conditions. Finding out what the symptoms really are, is an important part of the medical examination of very young patients. Intuition as well as detective skills may come in handy in the dialogue in between the physician and the child and its parents.
A position of trust
Going from assessment to treatment means having the right pieces of the clinical puzzle at hand for diagnosis. Immediate access to the most useful clinical parameters could mean efficient patient visits, correct treatment decisions and a better patient flow. Results also help distinguishing the critical patients from the less severe conditions.
Solutions at hand
HemoCue point-of-care testing systems give quick and reliable results with laboratory quality. Accurate tests for blood glucose, hemoglobin and white blood cell count, will together with clinical judgment give a solid basis for good treatment decisions.
With these systems at hand, you can manage all of the following directly at the point of care:
- Screening, diagnosing and monitoring diabetes
- Detection and monitoring of anemia
- Indication of general infection
