Fyra nya instrument för analys av blodgaser testade: Behändiga kassetter skall ge bättre användarvänlighet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An entirely new type of blood gas analyser has made its way into the marketplace, to be used, for example, in emergency rooms, intensive care units, ambulances, and bedside with quarantined patients in infectious diseases units. The instruments reviewed here employ new miniaturised analysis circuitry, integrated into the cassette on which the blood sample is applied. These instruments are designed for use by care-givers without specific laboratory training. Four point-of-care blood gas analysers are tested: OPTI 1 (AVL), I-STAT (HP), IRMA (Infiniti) och ABL 70 (Radiometer).
