Intensive Care Unit
In the fast-paced, complex environment of the intensive care unit, the status of compromised patients can change rapidly. Laboratory indicators such as blood gases need to be monitored frequently, especially in seriously ill patients. The epoc® System is well suited to meet the rigorous demands of an ICU.
With its portability and ease of use, the epoc® Blood Analysis System provides fast, accurate blood analysis at the patient’s bedside, enabling clinicians to quickly and effectively monitor and manage seriously ill patients in the ICU.
Rapid delivery of results in the ICU potentially leads to more accurate and timely differential diagnosis and treatment and may support:
- Reduced mortality rates
- More rapid extubation, which, in turn, may reduce the risk of nosocomial infections
- Fewer medical errors
- Reduced length of stay in the ICU
- More efficient and cost-effective utilization of healthcare resources
