Point of Care Testing in Emergency Departments: A Total SolutionDon’t second guess when every second counts

Approximately 70% of patients admitted to hospitals each day come from the Emergency Department1 

Each patient that comes to the Emergency Department (ED) has needs you must address through immediate action. 

In this environment, the basic evaluation of a patient may include high-sensitivy troponin to aid in properly managing chest pain patients, helping to determine urgent cases that need immediate attention, and freeing beds for high-acuity care. On-site creatinine results and pregnancy status are also vital before initial evaluation and management can take place. In all cases, timely transmission of patient data to the laboratory information system (LIS) and different departments is essential when making critical decisions.
