Point of care testing continues to evolve and indications for use to expand.  Although point of care testing is frequently associated with patient self-testing for monitoring of glucose levels or for use in remote sites where central laboratory machines are not accessible, the use of point of care testing within hospital or outpatient clinical settings can enhance clinical decision making and impact patient care.  There is a difference between bedside and near patient point of care testing and bedside testing has process advantages that differentiate it from near patient testing.  Examples of bedside point of care testing and the impact this has on patient care and interactions will be presented and discussed.
