Hi everyone,
I'm looking for a point of care sodium testing system (analogous to the cardiochek or lactatepro). Does such a device exist? I know the istat is an option, but that is far too expensive for me right now. Thanks!!

The Istat system is the only one I know of. It id very expensive as you already know and not the easiest of tools to use. We have them in the USAR medical cache.

Yeah I have experience with the istat, as we have one in each of our trauma bays and resus rooms. I really like it, and being able to run a pH, co2, bicarbonate, cl, etc would be cool. But I'm looking for something less expensive.
