5 COMPETENCY & the NEW employee Must complete an Initial Training, before patient testing Must complete semi-annually competency during the first year of duties, by 6 months Continue with current staff on an annual basis
6 COMPETENCY New Equipment – non-waived testing Retain Original Training Documents!! Implementation of new methodologies must have documentation of Initial Training (i.e. iSTAT1 to Gem3500). Even if the analyzer is an upgrade must retain original training material (i.e. iSTAT 200 to iSTAT1 – Signature Plus to Elite). Save this documentation as long as the analyzer is available for patient testing.
7 CREDENTIALS Testing Personnel Limitations Perfusion Certification is not a CLIA defined eligibility route – may be asked to produce H.S. Diploma Know who is permitted to be classified as Testing Personnel. For example, in CA – Perfusionists are exempt from the lab licensing for patient testing, but staff like Perfusion Assistants or Anesthesia Technicians, are not.
8 QUALITY CONTROL Failures Two consecutive wet failures in a row will trigger a repeat of the 10 or 30 day EQC study – depending on the analyzer. If have a wet failure on an analyzer that uses EQC, carefully determine C.A. before proceeding. Do not continue to repeat wets until get one in-range!
9 TEMERATURES Refrigerator & Room If supplies (cartridges, QC) are being stored in a small local (O.R.) Refrigerator, there must be indication of temperature monitoring. CAP requires daily. If Refrigerator is not hard wired to Engineering or continuously monitored in some manner, must be manual documentation. If have supplies kept at Room Temp, such as cartridges, should have a monitoring system also.
10 TEMERATURE Documentation acceptable range - C or F must be consistent - tightest range in use, (iSTAT 18-30 RT while Gem Cart 15-25) area for corrective action daily temp in addition to Min/Max – Daily is specified in CAP Checklist standards! monthly review w/ date & initials explanation of date w/out temp recorded

26 ROTEM ® delta System Thromboelastometry 1600 units in clinical use in 50 countries more than 500 publications
27 ROTEM delta System Common feature vs. comparable analyzer is the analysis platform: Clot formation, strength & stability, and subsequent lysis.
28 ROTEM ® vs. TEG 5000 ® GENERAL INFO –Incorporated in July 2008 –Primarily targeted researchers at the start –2-test approval 3/23/10, in-tem & hep-tem –Additional 3 tests approved 8/12/11 –April 2000 Haemoscope received the 510K –Purchased by Haemonetics 11/21/07 –5 tests with different activators
29 ROTEM vs. TEG 5000 Classical or Original method: Thromboelastography – originally described by H. Hartert in 1948 & trademarked by Haemoscope. Principle: cuvette is rotated and as clot forms it links the pin & cup together; movement of the pin is converted to electrical signals Rotational Thromboelastometry trademarked by Rotem Principle: pin oscillates as the cup remains stationary & as clot forms rotation becomes restricted & clot firmness detected optically PRINCIPLE
30 ROTEM delta & TEG 5000 PRINCIPLE via graphics Cup takes 10 seconds per rotation Electrical detection Pin makes 13 oscillations per minute Optical detection
31 ROTEM vs. TEG 5000 Control unit integrated Control unit on separate PC Some leveling requiredNo leveling required (constant monitoring system) 4 channel instrument COMPONENTS 2 channel instrument Up to 8 channels can run on one PC Scan can be viewed remotely using Secure Viewer software Scan can be viewed remotely
