Raising the benchmark for handheld blood gas testing-again

epoc Blood Analysis System now with the NXS Host

The epoc® Blood Analysis System is a handheld, bedside solution that provides lab-accurate blood gas, electrolyte, and metabolite (BGEM) results at the patient’s side in less than 1 minute.

The epoc system consists of three components: the NXS Host mobile computer, the Reader, and the BGEM Test Card.

The Test Card has 13 analytes on a single-use card that requires no refrigeration. The epoc system helps improve workflow and the clinical experience, with benefits to your blood-gas testing program that were previously unavailable in a point-of-care system.

Huntsville Hospital reduced their (sepsis) mortality rate by ~50% as part of a sepsis program.

“For every hour you wait to give an antibiotic, the mortality for that patient increases 8%, so now that we have the handheld device, the nurse can get those results within 3 minutes, and we know how to treat that patient.” —Carissa Hicks, RN, Huntsville Hospital

“We are talking 30 mins on a test and that is a STAT because that is just the process. That’s just how long it takes there’s nothing you can do about that” —Kristie Campbell, Huntsville Hospital
