Collapse Box


The literature on point-of-care testing published between April 2008 and July 2009 was reviewed. The technical performance and clinical impact of point-of-care testing is the focus of most recently published articles. This review divides recent literature into 5 topics that have been published most extensively in the past year and briefly describes the articles within each topic. The topics include diabetes/glucose, acute coronary syndrome/troponin, coagulation/international normalized ratio, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome/human immunodeficiency virus, and hemostasis/platelet function.
