$10,000 approved Arterial Blood Glass Point of Care i-STAT analyzers for Cardiopulmonary

Cardiopulmonary has been drawing the ABG's for West Park Hospital since July 1, 2016. In the past the workflow was to draw the blood and then take it to the laboratory for analysis. The i-STAT units will allow for the blood to be drawn and analyzed at the patient's bedside no matter where the patient is being cared for within the facility from the ED to OR to ACU/CCU, which gives rise to improve patient care because results are completed in 2 minutes or less. This will provide better care for the patients and faster result time for our physicians to help guide them in how to provide the best possible care to the patients that we service.
