The Stat Tracker allows clinicians to program the stat timer with user-defined alarms and flashing lights to alert when a stat sample is ready. If a sample is set up to spin for 5 minutes, the Stat Tracker can be programmed for the same length of time. A green light will illuminate when the timer is started, and a bell sounds at the half-way point. Lights can be programmed to switch to red when there are 20 seconds remaining, and a final bell will sound when the stat is complete. An assortment of programming options and sounds are available to suit the individual needs of clinicians.
