Blood Conservation With A Patient Dedicated Arterial Blood Gas Analyser

Anaemia is a frequent complication of critical care, with up to 90% of ICU (Intensive Care Unit) patients being anaemic by their third day in the ICU1. Anaemia is associated with poor patient outcomes, especially amongst those patients with cardiovascular disease2345. The treatments of choice for anaemia are the minimisation of blood loss and the transfusion of red blood cells when necessary.

With diagnostic testing being a significant factor in cumulative blood loss and the risk of anaemia, the use of a patient dedicated arterial blood gas analyser to minimise blood loss is described.
