Emergency Department Blood Test Study
Protocol: STUDY00003912
Full Title
"POC Study Protocol: StatStrip Lactate, Hemoglobin, and Hematocrit Meter in Whole Blood "
This study enrolls adults in the Emergency Department who will be receiving a blood test. The purpose of this research study is to test blood with a new meter to determine if it is accurate. The meter has not yet been approved for use but the FDA believes that this is a low risk device to obtain and test blood samples. The meter is called the StatStrip Lactate, Hemoglobin, and Hematocrit Meter and it tests the amount of lactate, hemoglobin and hematocrit in your system using a drop of blood.

We expect that you will be in this research study during your emergency department visit. You will be asked to give blood samples that will be obtained with the blood that is already being taken for your clinical care but will also require us to prick your finger to obtain additional drops of blood from your finger.

Technical Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical utility of the StatStrip Lactate, Hemoglobin and Hematocrit Hospital Meter System in the testing of whole blood specimens from patients in hospital settings by Point-of-Care operators, over a period of at least twenty days.
