BackgroundThis study evaluated the feasibility of blood gas analysis and electrolyte measurements during emergency transport prior to hospital admission.ResultsA portable, battery-powered blood analyzer was used on patients in life threatening conditions to determine pH, pCO2, pO2, sodium, potassium and ionized calcium. Arterial blood was used for blood gas analysis and electrolyte measurements. Venous blood was used for electrolyte measurement alone. During the observation period of 4 months… CONTINUE READING
