If however, the analysis of the blood gases
needs to be postponed, the clinician should be aware that storage in ice or in the fridge are not very different (even though the former is possibly slightly better) and that the levels of Pa[0.
The machine will allow us to have ice whenever we need it to put in packs to keep the specimen blood gases
cool as they are transported to the lab.
These practices are not only effective in reducing post draw value changes in blood gases
, but also can help to minimize changes in electrolyte and metabolite values.
A variety of emerging sensing technologies for critical care were described, including: optical sensors for blood gases
and electrolytes (and their application in near-patient situations) and biosensors for measurement of glucose, lactate, ionized magnesium, and DNA in blood and serum.
The ABL90 FLEX analyzer, designed for point-of-care testing, measures 16 parameters, including blood gases
, electrolytes, metabolites, and CO-oximetry, in 35 seconds from 65-[mu]L samples.
Drawing arterial blood gases
is, of course, a very important task for the respiratory therapist and pulmonary function technologist.
Nasdaq-NNM: DMED) today announced that it has received FDA clearance to market its Neotrend(TM) product, the first and only multiparameter system for direct continuous monitoring of blood gases
(oxygen, carbon dioxide and acidity) and temperature in critically ill premature babies.
Designed specifically for point-of-care (POC) testing, the ABL90 FLEX is a test-select analyzer that measures 16 parameters, including blood gases
, electrolytes, metabolites and CO-oximetry, from just 65 L of whole blood.
Arterial blood gases
provide a means to evaluate several critical aspects of a patient's condition.
The portable blood-gas analyzer ABL80 FLEX CO-OX matches the co-oximetry performance of bench-top analyzers--accurately measuring pH, blood gases
, electrolytes, and glucose parameters.
The Company's IRMA(R)(Immediate Response Mobile Analysis) System, measures the blood gases
(oxygen, carbon dioxide and acidity (pH)), the electrolytes (sodium, potassium and ionized calcium) and hematocrit in whole blood in a simple 90-second procedure at the point of patient care.
Approved (FCC recommendations on whole blood sampling, transport and storage for simulataneous determination of pH blood gases
In addition, the company received clearance from the FDA for a reduced minimum sample size of 200 microliters for all of its marketable chemistry tests, including the measurement of blood gases

AegisPOC allows users to connect with any manufacturer's critical care or POC testing device including blood gases
, glucose, coagulation, cardiac marker devices and more.
