Formerly, used in war zones for rapid, in the field results, this device is extremely handy when quick labs are needed.

The “i-Stat System“, consisting of a hand-held device, and a simulator/printer is a ground-breaking device in the medical arena of Lab testing.  It is  a portable blood analysis device, that, like the Vscan, will find an ever-increasing role in the world of healthcare,  in virtually all sectors.  The device was developed by a private concern, but, once the obvious potential was seen, Abbot Labs, one of the largest lab companies in the world, bought the rights to this device, and is now marketing it as a “Point-of-Care” system, called the “i-Stat System“.

Its’ wide variety of blood tests include:  troponin, blood gases, hematology, electrolytes (includes glucose), coagulation studies, cardiac markers, amongst others.

And, since one version is wireless, lab tests performed can be automatically downloaded to anywhere in a connected office, or wherever the clinician choses to send it, i.e. the hospital, or the Personal Medical Record of the patient residing in the cloud, or the EMR of the doctor, as well as to other consultants of the patient. Clinical settings where the I-Stat may find an especially important role are: Urgent care centers, surgery centers,radiology/imaging center, family practices, cardiology practices, Emergency Rooms, ICUs, Operating Rooms, and, actually, all outpatient clinics.

Both Physicians and Patients want to get results NOW.  Most physician’s can relate to the frustating feeling of waiting for lab results, especially in arenas such as the ER, OR, or ICUs.  This handheld portable blood analysis tool may lessen that frustration, and foment overall more efficient, less-costly healthcare.

For all the specific  lab tests the i-Stat can do in the field, see this link following:
