Overcoming pre-analytical issues in blood gas testing
Available on demand

Blood gas testing can be easily impacted by pre-analytic factors – including sample collection, environmental exposure, and proper sample mixing. This webinar will review how pre-analytic errors can be recognized and mitigated to avoid the age-old ‘garbage in, garbage out’ scenario – minimizing recollection and retesting while maximizing point-of-care (POC) blood gas testing efficiency.

Key learning objectives

  • Determine the ideal collection methods for blood gas testing
  • Explain the challenges of collection and pre-analytic sample handling
  • Discuss the impact of pre-analytic challenges on point-of-care (POC) blood gas testing
