Handhelds in Healthcare Discussed in Newast Kalorama Information Market Research Report10 Feb 2012 • by Natalie Aster
Handheld prothrombin time (PT) monitors are similar to monitors which test the level of insulin for diabetes patients. Prothrombin time is the testing of anticoagulant drugs in a patient’s blood such as warfarin sodium (Coumadin) in patients with conditions such as hyperhomocystinemia, elevated factor VIII levels, dysfibrinogenemia, factor XII deficiency and disorders of plasmin generation, and to assess acquired conditions, such as pregnancy, postoperative state, antiphospholipid syndrome, hyperhomocystinemia, among others.
In the new market report “Handhelds in Healthcare: The World Market for PDAs, Tablet PCs, Handheld Monitors & Scanners” by Kalorama Information prothrombin levels are also monitored along with other tests (such as aspirate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase) to help evaluate liver function.
