EMS Stat

Ambulance and Emergency Blood Testing

Lactate, Haemoglobin, Haematocrit, Glucose and Ketone testing for early patient assessment and treatment

EMS Stat can measure lactate, haematocrit, haemoglobin, 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 systems are available - one provides patient data storage plus wireless connectivity to external data managers, the other provides data storage only.

Test Menu

EMS Stat provides important tests to help patient assessment and emergency treatment. These test 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:

  • Early, more sensitive detection of sepsis and septic shock than vital signs alone8
  • Identification of patients with sepsis who might benefit from early goal-directed therapy and advanced activation of medical staff at the transport site10,11
  • Evaluation of trauma, critical illness, hemorrhage, acute coronary syndrome, acute respiratory failure, and chest and abdominal pain11,13

Haemoglobin / Haematocrit

EMS Stat provides accurate, measured results for both haemoglobin and haematocrit for pre-hospital assessment of blood oxygen carrying capacity for:   

  • Evaluation of internal or external hemorrhage
  • Assessment of the need for blood products14,15
  • Estimation of blood loss
