RAPIDPoint 300 Blood Gas Systems

Course Description: In this training you will learn about key components and features of the RAPIDPoint 300 systems, which include the RAPIDPoint 350 and RAPIDPoint 340 blood gas analyzers. You will also learn how the RAPIDPoint 300 systems measure blood gasses and the clinical significance of test results.

System Overview Competency: Locate major modules and key components, determine their function, trace the fluid path, and identify the technologies of measured tests to provide the foundation to successfully operate the RAPIDPoint 350 and 340 blood gas analyzers.

Daily Setup & Sample Processing Competency: Analyze patient samples in syringe and capillary modes, review patient analysis results, and perform daily cleaning to clean the sample fluid path on the RAPIDPoint 300 systems.

Calibration and QC Competency: Access items displayed in software menus, differentiate between 1-point and 2-point automatic calibrations, analyze QC samples and review data on calibration and QC reports on the RAPIDPoint 300 systems.

Customization Competency: Access options in the Second menu to perform diagnostic tests to test the accuracy of your instrument, review and print stored patient, QC and calibration data; and select settings that customize your RAPIDPoint 300 system to suit the needs of your workspace.

Troubleshooting Competency: Use the Diagnostics menu to identify and locate system malfunctions in the sensor, valve and reagent modules, and troubleshoot electrode and reagent problems on the RAPIDPoint 300 systems.

Instrument-specific PEP courses can supplement one-to-one training or help to verify learning. They also provide a means of competency documentation for regulatory compliance. Organizations may use PEP courses to standardize training regimens to improve proficiency. Users can initiate and participate in training prior to a new instrument’s arrival and will have unlimited access to online courses on an on-going basis.
