Radiometer America’s blood gas analyzers are typically found in a variety of intensive care units (ICU), such as burn, surgical, medical, trauma, cardiovascular, neuro, coronary care, neonatal and pediatric.
In addition to measuring blood gas and pH, which is helpful in caring for patients that may be compromised from a respiratory perspective, our analyzers also measure co-oximetry, electrolytes and metabolites (including lactate) which aids in the care of patients suffering from trauma, multiple organ failure and sepsis, as well as those undergoing or recovering from cardiac or other surgeries.
The ABL90 FLEX blood gas analyzer offers a 35-second turnaround for the critical labs mentioned above and is extremely easy to use. These are a just a few of the reasons why it is a popular choice for intensive care units.
With AQURE, Radiometer’s POC analyzer and data management system, the results of any tests done in the ICU are automatically identified, matched to the right patient and sent to the hospital and laboratory information systems.
