Point-of-care blood gas system
Siemens Healthineers recently announced the new RAPIDPoint 500e blood gas system, their latest solution in critical point-of-care testing. The new system generates blood gas, electrolyte and metabolyte results used to diagnose and monitor critically ill patients typically in the intensive care unit, operating room or emergency room. The RAPIDPoint 500e blood gas system is available now in all countries requiring the CE mark. Developed with extensive customer feedback, the system is designed to elevate confidence in patient results with Integri-sense technology, streamline workflow with improved simplicity and raise the bar in data security. Cybersecurity is becoming a key operational factor. Healthcare providers must protect confidential operator and patient information.
The RAPIDPoint 500e blood gas system incorporates Integri-sense technology, a comprehensive series of automated functional checks designed to deliver accurate test results at the point-of-care. Integri-sense technology combines three levels of automatic quality control (AutomaticQC), multiple calibration routines and advanced software algorithms to generate reliable and clinically actionable test results. It also integrates seamlessly into hospital networks with the Siemens Healthineers Point of Care Ecosystem which offers convenient, remote management of operators and devices located across multiple sites.
