EMS Stat can measure lactate, hematocrit, hemoglobin, glucose and ketone from a capillary blood drop. Results are available in seconds by using single-use biosensors and portable meters. EMS Stat offers simple, fast and accurate testing in the field. Two meter models are available; EMS Stat Data Link provides patient data storage and wireless connectivity to external data managers, EMS Stat Basic* provides data storage only.
EMS Stat enables testing at the point-of-care, where timely results can support patient assessment and an informed emergency treatment. These test results can also help determine the appropriate transport site for patients with trauma, sepsis and other specialised needs.
Glucose / Ketone
Abnormal glucose levels are frequently encountered in ambulance patients. Medical conditions that warrant pre-hospital blood glucose testing include diabetes, altered mental state, seizure, acute coronary syndrome, organ injury, trauma, sepsis, septic shock, and burns.1-3
Blood ketone testing provides rapid detection or rule-out of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), the leading cause of hospitalisation and death for children with diabetes.4 The American Diabetes Association and International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes recommend blood ketone testing whenever glucose is above 14 mmol/L (250 mg/dL).5,6
Elevated blood lactate is a rapid, sensitive indicator of tissue hypoxia, sepsis, septic shock, and hypovolemic shock.7-9 For ambulance patients, lactate testing provides:
Hemoglobin / Hematocrit
EMS Stat offers accurate, measured results for both hemoglobin and hematocrit for pre-hospital assessment of blood oxygen carrying capacity for:
