dc.description.abstractPoint of care (POC) or ‘near patient’ testing refers to testing and reporting at the site of patient care, usually by non-laboratory or where applicable by non-imaging personnel. Although now a growth industry, the POC concept is not new. Modalities brought to the bedside in decades past have included ultrasonography [1], echocardiography [2], pulse oximetry [3], and intra-arterial [4] and transcutaneous [5] as well as benchtop blood gas monitoring. Current applications are legion, whether wearable, hand-held or benchtop devices [6]. To cite just a few we have glycosylated haemoglobin analysis [7], pulse co-oximetry [8], thrombo-elastography [9], therapeutic drug and drugs of abuse screening [10], tests for malaria, tubercle bacillus and the dengue virus [11] and cartridge-based analysers offering suites of tests such as blood gas analysis, electrolyte and urea/creatinine panels, haematocrit and coagulation testing, rapid cardiac markers and β-HCG assays [12, 13].
