Empower your ED with certainty

As an ED professional, you deal with uncertainty every day. Patients with diffuse symptoms require various tests, which can result in long waiting times for lab results causing overcrowding and potentially delaying timely care for your most critical patients.

Point-of-care testing (POCT) can be an asset in the emergency department, helping to speed up diagnosis and treatment processes while reducing contingencies and process costs. [1,2,3]

Radiometer, specialists in blood gas and acute care diagnostics since 1954, delivers comprehensive and connected ED POCT solutions to support fast clinical decision-making in the ED.

Overview of some of the relevant parameters that you can measure with the Radiometer ED POCT solution.

Explore the parameters available to you with our ICU and NICU point-of-care testing solutions.

How you can accelerate patient flow in the ED

Whether you send the patient home or on for further treatment, ED point-of-care testing speeds up turnaround time and helps you accelerate patient flow.

Creatinine results at the point of care can help you identify patients at risk of acute kidney injury (AKI). Quickly assess your patient's kidney status before CT or MRI scans to determine if there’s a risk of contrast-induced nephropathy. [4]

The value of measuring lactate in the diagnosis of sepsis

Diagnosing patients suspected of sepsis is both challenging and complex. Often patients arriving at the ED are febrile and have shortness of breath, low blood pressure, a high pulse and respiration - symptoms which can easily be confused with other severe conditions.

For patients already suspected of sepsis, measuring the lactate levels provides useful information on the severity of the condition and enables monitoring of disease progression [5].

Discover how the Radiometer ED POCT solution supports certainty in the ED

Point-of-care testing has the potential to reduce turn-around time in critical care situations. [1, 6]

Comprehensive and connected, the Radiometer ED point-of-care testing (POCT) solution can help reduce turnaround time by giving you reliable results at the point of care with:

ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analyzer

Compact blood gas analyzer that delivers blood gas results from 17 parameters in 35 seconds.

safePICO samplers

Blood gas syringes designed for homogeneous samples.

AQURE POC IT solution

Device-to-lab connectivity with 24/7 management and easy remote maintenance.

Patient safety is at the center of everything we do and determines the procedures, our activities and all other actions performed in the ED.
