OBJECTIVE To evaluate the analytical performance of the i-STAT system, which is designed for point of care testing and employs a hand-held chemistry analyzer and disposable cartridges, which in the configuration tested, are capable of measuring sodium, potassium, chloride, urea, glucose, and hematocrit in approximately 65 microL of blood in 90's. METHODS Linearity and imprecision in hematocrit measurement were assessed using whole blood, while that for the other analytes were evaluated with… CONTINUE READING
