Blood Gas – GEM 4000

PURPOSE OF TEST

The GEM Premier 4000 analyzer with intelligent Quality Management (iQM) is an advanced, critical care system used by health care professionals to analyze whole blood samples in point of care clinical settings. It provides fast accurate, quantitative measurements of whole blood pH, pCO2, pO2, Na+, K+, ICA++, Glucose, Lactate, Hematocrit, and Co-Oximetry. These parameters, along with the derived parameters, aid in the diagnosis of a patient’s acid/base status, electrolyte and metabolite balance and oxygen delivery capacity.
