E-Ca Type Cassette
For use with respiratory nurse specialists
Portable care that gives rapid, accurate results at the patients’ bedside.
Instant results allow treatment to be swift and tailor made to patients’ requirements, meaning a better patient pathway, outcome and experience.
The E-Ca Type cassette gives results for pH, PCO2, PO2, tHb, SO2, Na+, K+ and Ca from whole blood, serum or plasma samples. pH determines the acidity and alkalinity of the blood, PO2 determines how well the lungs transfer oxygen to the blood, PCO2 determines how well carbon dioxide leaves the body, tHb determines the blood’s ability to transport CO2 and O2, SO2 determines the arterial oxygen saturation, Na+, K+ and Ca (sodium, potassium and calcium) determine electrolyte balance, or salt balance, and are necessary in controlling fluid movements within the body.
