The i-STAT ® analyzer processes testing results in just four easy steps.
A true portable with-patient testing device, the i-STAT ® System increases efficiency and productivity by reducing the time and labor required to collect, process, and report results. Unlike multi-use systems, i-STAT ® is ready to use around the clock with no downtime for calibration or consumables. The i-STAT ® analyzer’s screen prompts users with step-by-step instructions during the entire testing process.
The i-STAT ® System has been shown to deliver lab-quality results significantly quicker than both bench-top systems and the central laboratory.1,2 The i-STAT ® System offers 24/7 with-patient testing, avoiding delays seen with bench-top systems, such as transport, human distractions, maintenance, and calibration.
Results from two large UK hospitals showed i-STAT ® to be significantly quicker than two separate bench-top analyzers as well as the central laboratory.1,2
Traditional blood analysis is a complicated multistep process that slows labe results, delays diagnosis and treatment and allows ample opportunity for variance and handoffs that can lead to patient errors. However, bedside testing with the i-STAT ® System analyses the pateint sample with minimal steps - including reducing the numerous traditional preanalytic steps to just one. By streamlining the process, the i-STAT ® System reduces variance and unnecessary delays, and eliminates manual errors.
The i-STAT ® System allows health care teams to stay with-patients during testing to deliver collaborative, patient-centred care. The system drives performance and efficiency at each stage of the patient journey, from the time spent waiting to be seen through to treatment, discharge or admission.
The i-STAT ® System can help health care professionals :
- Reduce potential for errors
- Promote collaboration among clinical teams, allowing for consultation with colleagues to make immediate treatment decisions at the bedside
- Quickly respond to needs or changes in a patient conditions
- Interact with the patient’s family without leaving the patient’s side, and increase family involvement and confidence
As a result, the i-STAT System can enhance patient satisfaction by minimizing wait times and length of stay.
