On August 1, AACC announced the launch of a new certification—the first of its kind in the United States—geared toward healthcare providers who perform diagnostic tests outside central laboratories. The new Certified Point-of-Care Testing Professional (CPP) certification reflects the growing importance of point-of-care testing (POCT) as a discipline in . Summary: The global market for pregnancy point of care testing market is likely to envisage incremental growth at a healthy % CAGR during the forecast period Smartphone-based Pregnancy Point of Care Testing Emerging as a Potential Alternative to Lab-based Di.

  This book is intended for laboratory personnel, practicing physicians, and nurses involved in point-of-care testing (POCT). It is organized into six parts, containing forty chapters. Each part, or chapter, can be used separately depending on the reader’s needs and : Celia J. Menendez-Botet.   Point of care testing, otherwise referred to as near patient, bedside, or extra laboratory testing, is not new. Many of the early “diagnostic tests” were first done at the bedside—for example, urine testing. Over the past few years, however, analytical systems have been developed that enable a wide range of tests to be done quickly and simply without the Cited by:

  Expediting triage and time to diagnosis are crucial to decreasing morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. 1 Point-of-care testing has been shown to achieve these goals, leading to improved operational efficiency and, ultimately, better patient outcomes. 2 Point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) in the ED is one of the point-of-care testing. For personnel performing laboratory or point-of-care testing, what is required for evidence of their qualifications? The Joint Commission standards require compliance with the personnel qualifications specified in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).

A brand new quick-reference guide to point-of-care laboratory testing. Point-of-care technology can deliver quick, simple, portable, user-friendly, and reliable test results. Instead of a fad, it's now an essential component of health care testing.

This book covers the basics to help you become familiar with point-of-care testing. Point-of-care (POC) or with-patient testing allows physicians and medical staff to accurately achieve real-time, lab-quality diagnostic results within minutes rather than hours.

Through the use of portable blood analyzers, testing at the “point of care” streamlines the diagnostic process and helps ensure patients receive the most effective. Completely revised and expanded from 27 to 46 chapters, this book, written by an international list of contributors, gives you the latest developments in the rapidly growing field of point-of-care testing (POCT).

It is the second edition of this major text to bring together:Cited by: Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Laboratory and Point-of-Care Testing (CAMLAB) by Joint Commission Resources and Laura Hible | Spiral-bound. Point-of-care testing (POCT) is now considered a key enabler of reform and quality improvement in healthcare.

Written by an international list Point-of-care testing book authors, this book brings together: A distillation of the key challenges in healthcare today, including the move to patient-centered care.

Point-of-care testing (POCT) enables health care personnel to perform clinical laboratory testing near the patient. The idea of conventional and POCT laboratory services presiding within a hospital seems contradictory; yet, they are, in fact, complementary: together POCT and central laboratory are important for the optimal functioning of.

Point of care (POC) tests used in Primary and Community Care settings There is a wide variety of tests available and in use for POCT in Primary Guidelines for Safe and Effective Management and Use of Point of Care Testing in Primary and Community Care point-of-care testing and to identify high-priority clinical problems that can benefit from a point-of-care approach.

The workshop is structured around a “systems” perspective, both technology-based systems and the health care system as a whole, to reflect the belief that changing the way. The Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) Certificate Course is designed to advance the skills, knowledge, and competencies of health care professionals who routinely perform point-of-care laboratory testing.

ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN Point-of-Care Testing 3 Context Point-of-care testing (POCT) refers to diagnostic tests performed at or near the patient’s location by a health care professional or other qualified personnel.1 This can include tests conducted by patients themselves in the home or community setting (i.e., patient.

Anthony F.T. Brown, Jeffrey Lipman, in Mechanical Ventilation, Point-of-Care Testing. Point-of-care testing has become commonplace at the bedside with advances in medical technology and is a vast improvement on carrying only blood glucose analysis strips.

Many hematologic and biochemical tests are now available that measure sodium, potassium. A new book published by AACC Press, Global Point of Care: Strategies for Disasters, Emergencies, and Public Health Resilience, offers a unique perspective on points of need in the who read the book will learn how to practice evidence-based medicine using innovative point-of-care (POC) testing, and they will also get an overview of.

CAP, Point-of-Care Testing Toolkit, developed by the CAP Point-of-Care Testing Committee, is intended to be a resource for any member of the POCT team who wants to learn about POCT or who has responsibility to guide or direct POCT.

It may be particularly useful to pathology residents, pathologists who have been longtime directors of POCT programs, or pathologists. Get this book in print. Laboratory information management system for point of care testing.

Point of care testing (POCT), as the name describes, is testing that can be done at the point of care. It is also referred to as near-patient testing, or bedside testing.

POCT is performed outside of the central laboratory, on small portable devices. There is a significant breadth of technology in POCT, and the field is growing rapidly.

Mike Hallworth, in Clinical Biochemistry: Metabolic and Clinical Aspects (Third Edition), Point-of-care testing. Point-of-care testing is appropriate in some clinical situations since the availability of a plasma drug concentration at the time of consultation allows the clinician to make immediate decisions on dosage adjustments based on objective data.

Point of care testing should be organised by laboratory staff and follow the line set out in the box. Wherever possible, point of care testing equipment should be linked to the laboratory information system to enable real time monitoring of performance and integration of results into the patient's electronic by: This volume is the first comprehensive clinical practice reference in the rapidly growing field of point-of-care testing.

Written by the experts and innovators in point-of-care testing technologies and procedures, the book provides practical guidance in planning and implementing the most reliable, clinically useful, and cost-effective point-of-care procedures and systems.

A Practical Guide to Global Point-of-Care Testing shows health professionals how to set up and manage POCT services under a quality-assured, sustainable, clinically and culturally effective framework, as well as understand the wide global scope and clinical applications of POCT.

The book is divided into three major themes: the management of. This chapter describes special tests and point-of-care testing (POCT). Collecting specimens for special tests requires special preparation, equipment, handling, or timing.

POCT specimens are collected using small, portable, and often handheld testing devices that bring laboratory testing to the location of the Size: 1MB.

Point of care or POC blood testing devices are easy handheld devices which are used to perform various blood tests. Point of care blood testing devices are used to obtain diagnostics test such as protein test, blood metabolites test, hormone blood test, INR or prothrombin test (PT), haemoglobin test and also used to test glucose level in blood/5(32).Point of Care is a one-stop guide to the latest technologies, trends, issues, and research in near-patient testing worldwide.

The journal delivers must-read news reports, rigorously peer-reviewed studies, and practical advice to help readers use the most efficient and cost-effective laboratory management approaches relating to : $According to CAP, Point of Care Testing refers to those analytical patient tests provided within the institution, but performed outside the physical facilities of the clinical laboratories.

The central criterion of POCT is that it does not require permanent dedicated space.
