The new paradigm of POCT as integrated into the ICU will allow for an improved and more efficient critical care workplace and possibly improvements in outcome and costs. Technologic advances in POCT will focus on enhancements of current devices, connectivity, and data management and on the introduction of novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. It is hoped that in the future the regulatory, laboratory, and L/HIS communities will recognize the need to accept, integrate, accommodate, and expand POCT, thereby promoting bedside diagnostics. For ongoing follow-up of the myriad of POCT projects, refer to the POCT websites listed in Table 1.
