The Abbott i-STAT®1 blood gas analyser will completely change the way you work. It doesn't matter if you're looking at it from the perspective of nurse or Primary Care Trust (PCT) funding manager, the i-STAT®1 will help you do your jobs more effectively than ever.
The technology has been used for more than ten years in UK hospitals, but this is its first successful application as a handheld instrument for community based applications.
The easy-to-use handheld analytical device provides reliable, lab accurate test results in minutes. Just two drops of blood is sufficient to provide accurate testing for blood gases, electrolytes, chemistries, coagulation, haematology and cardiac markers.
For sheer convenience, the i-STAT®1 is unsurpassed. It is fully portable, weighing only 18 ounces. It is immediately ready for use - thereby cutting testing times still further. It has plenty of capacity- each unit can store up to 5000 patient records.
Q1. What information does the i-STAT blood gas analyser require before a patient test can be performed?
A1. User ID, Patient ID, Cartridge Lot Number.
Q2. How many digits will my User ID have?
A2. Your choice
Q3. When analysing a patient sample, how should the i-STAT blood gas analyser be positioned?
A3. By the patient's bedside, on a flat surface.
Q4. What does it mean when the i-STAT blood gas analyser screen displays "CARTRIDGE LOCKED"?
A4. Do not try to remove the cartridge, as this will damage the pins, which read the electrical signals from the electrodes.
Q5. What would I do if I get a result that does not fit with the patient's clinical picture?
A5. Re-test by using a fresh sample
Q6. How long will the screen stay on before the i-STAT blood gas analyser switches itself off?
A6. 2 minutes or, if "Enter Cartridge" is showing ENTER CARTRIDGE then it will switch off after 15 minutes.
Q7. How can I check the last patient result if the analyser switches itself off?
A7. Turn the analyser on again, select Option 1 - Last Result, press ENTER.
Q8. How do I make a printout of the patient's results?
A8. Choose the result that you want to print, these must be shown on the screen before a printout can be made. Align the infrared window of the i-STAT with the infrared window of the printer, press and hold the print button on the i-STAT.
Q9. Why would I need to use the Electronic Simulator?
A9. To make sure that the i-STAT is working correctly. The Electronic Simulator tests the ability of the analyser to read accurate electronic signals.
Q10. How often do I need to perform the Electronic Simulator test?
A10. Every 24 hours.
Q11. What is the most common cause of failure of the Electronic Simulator test?
A11. The most common failure code is L which means that the metal is cold and the plastic is warm, condensation occurs on the electrodes of the Simulator and it is unable to pass the test. Re-run the Simulator.
Q12. How can I check a patient's result from a few days ago?
A12. Turn the i-STAT on and select 2. DATA REVIEW, select 7. LIST, scroll through the list using the arrow key until your result can be seen. Press the test number required to highlight it and press ENTER.
Q13. How many Patient test results will the i-STAT blood gas analyser store?
Q14. How many Quality Control tests will the i-STAT blood gas analyser store?
Q15. Why do i-STAT blood gas analysers need software updates?
A15. Due to the continuous manufacturing process improvements to the i-STAT system it is necessary to update standarisation values from time to time to maintain longterm consistency of performance. These updates are equivalent to manually adjusting calibration on a traditional laboratory analyser.
Q16. Where are the software update instructions located?
A16. If you received the i-STAT Software and Documentation CD-ROM, the software update insructions are located in the folder "1._Instructions_for_Software_Update"
Q17. Should I update the CLEW/JAMS software on the Data Management System (Central Data Station, PWeb/DE, RALS/DE) or the analyser first?

A21. The analyser's CLEW software has expired and the software update must be performed before testing is enabled.
Q22. Where can I verify the CLEW and JAMS version within the analyser?
A22. The "Analyser Status" or "Status" page, depending on which analyser is being used, will list the CLEW and JAMS versions currently installed.
Q23. Where can I locate the Update Packet for my System Manuals?
A23. If you received the i-STAT Software and Documentation CD-ROM, the Update Packet for the System Manuals is located in the folder "5._Update_Packets_for_System_Manuals"

A24. Yes, an analyser may be updated to the latest CLEW and JAMS regardless of what version is currently installed.
Q25. Is a Data Management System (Central Data Station, PWeb or RALS) required to update my analyser?
A25. No, the minimum required materials needed in order to perform the software update are:
- Serial Downloader (model DS, DRS or DRC) including the cables.
- The latest CLEW and JAMS software.
- PC with available COM port and CD-ROM drive, running Windows2000 or XP.
