E-GLU 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-GLU cassette gives results for pH, PCO2, PO2, tHb, SO2, Na+, K+ and GLU 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+ and K+ (sodium and potassium) determine electrolyte balance, or salt balance, and are necessary in controlling fluid movements within the body and GLU (glucose) is used to monitor patients with diabetes to prevent hyper- or hypoglycemia.
