The benefits of using Point-of-care testing (POCT) instruments include not only the immediate feedback to the individual, but also the simplicity, ease and speed of testing results. It is a compact, easy to carry and highly accurate instrument, bringing the testing procedure closer to the patient, particularly in primary and intensive care.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
