Richard Wolf launches new ureterorenoscopes

Medical instrument manufacturer Richard Wolf presents two new flexible Sensor Ureterorenoscopes: the single-channel ureterorenoscope (URS) `BOA vision´ and a dual-channel URS `COBRA vision´.

Due to the very small sheath diameter of 8.7 Fr., `BOA vision´ can be introduced through Access Sheaths with a diameter of just 9.5 Fr. This makes it particularly suitable for the treatment of children and adult patients with very narrow ureters. `COBRA vision´ also permits the simultaneous option of using one or two working instruments with outstanding irrigation performance in both cases. This significantly reduces the intervention times compared with single-channel renoscopes.

Berchtold introduces TABLEGARD Patient Care System to combat hypothermia and provide true pressure relief

Whether it’s the development of postoperative pressure ulcers or complications from perioperative hypothermia, patients face a wide range of risks from prolonged surgical procedures.

That’s where TABLEGARD comes in. This revolutionary patient care system from Berchtold is the only OR table mattress that provides both pressure management and warmth during surgery. The result is a significant reduction in pressurerelated sores and ulcers, as well as anaesthesia- induced hypothermia.

TABLEGARD’s innovative design is based on the body’s own physiology, mimicking the peristaltic motion of muscles to generate even, gentle movement in 15-minute cycles throughout an extended procedure.

TABLEGARD is also changing the way surgical teams maintain safe core temperatures during procedures, especially with today’s ORs being kept extremely cold to prevent cell death. Berchtold’s integrated system produces a surface temperature range of 28-43º C, helping reduce the risk of perioperative hypothermia.

For over 90 years Berchtold has been one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of high quality surgical equipment. The company offers surgical lights, OR tables, ceiling supply units, video and camera systems, and customized surgical solutions.

Timesco Callisto single-use laryngoscopes at the forefront of preventing cross contamination and spread of disease

Ebola, AIDS, Hepatitis C, Sepsis, MERS, with the proliferation of contagious diseases across the world, cross contamination between patients has become a major issue. Timesco single-use laryngoscopes Callisto are leading the way in preventing the spread of microorganisms, infections, spores and prions.

In guidelines published in the association of anaesthetists of Great Britain magazine, Anaesthesia, it was recommended that all laryngoscopes blades and handles should be autoclaved and the use of single use devices encouraged. However, autoclaving does not guarantee the total elimination of prions on laryngoscopes.

Timesco’s Callisto single use laryngoscopes offer ready-to-use convenience and cost savings compared to reusable laryngoscopes: Guaranteed control of cross contamination; no reprocessing or autoclaving costs; clinically clean, single use pre-packed; will not bend / deform in use ; can be used with fibre reusable handles: Optima, Sirius, Optima XLED and single use handles Callisto S and Callisto LED.

The Callisto system is latex free, non-toxic and can be disposed in standard hospital waste. Timesco products are ISO, CE, FDA, SFDA, etc. worldwide approved.

Timesco Callisto Laryngoscopes are the No. 1 choice for cross contamination prevention.

Bovie Medical Corporation introduces J-Plasma technology and other new devices at Arab Health 2015

Bovie® Medical Corporation, the first name in electrosurgery, continues to transform the healthcare industry with electrosurgical products for the physician office, outpatient facilities and the hospital operating room.

The Bovie name represents ongoing innovation and superior surgical performance. At this year’s Arab Health exhibition, Bovie introduces the heliumbased technology J-Plasma® – another historical first destined to transform how surgeries are performed. J-Plasma has recently won the prestigious SLS 2014 Innovation of the Year Award.

Dr Craig E. McCoy, OB/GYN surgeon, reports: “I’m able to treat tissue near vital structures, and actually see it be excised cell layer by cell layer without any thermal spread.”

This kind of precision is made possible through the use of cool, tissue-sparing effects found only with helium plasma. There is extremely low risk of injury to surrounding tissue, giving surgeons control at the micron level.

See for yourself how J-Plasma works to deliver remarkably low thermal spread with a high level of precision and versatility across open and laparoscopic gynecological procedures.

Bovie will also be exhibiting its complete line of electrosurgical generators including the new IDS-310, 300 watt operating room electrosurgical generator with tissue fusing technology and the Derm 101 High Frequency Desiccator, an extremely affordable unit for simple skin procedures. Alongside our equipment Bovie also supplies a full line of electrosurgical accessories and Smoke Evacuation products.

CIM Med’s triplyarticulated arm is super-efficient

CIM Med’s height-adjustable, triplyarticulated arm is incredibly efficient in daily hospital work. If a larger distance is required between the mounting point of the carrier arm and the monitor itself, then this carrier arm system by CIM Med is the ideal solution. The arm is available in an upward as well as downward version. Whatever the position or monitor model, personnel will be able to work ergonomically. An example: finding an ergonomic monitor position is difficult, particularly with underside-mounted patient and observation monitors that are fixed in a high position. A carrier arm oriented downward is an optimal way to counter this problem. The carrier system can swivel 360 degrees, but an integrated stopper prevents turning beyond a certain limit. This avoids any potential damage to the cabling inside. If need be, staff members can easily change cabling. No tangle of cables also means easier cleaning.

Fanem’s Duetto 2386 Hybrid Unit is state-of-theart technology

The Duetto 2386 Hybrid Unit, which operates as both an incubator and radiant heat unit, is already available in Brazil. The award-winning equipment, together with its accessories, enables versatile use in every newborn care situation. This characteristic reduces the need to transfer patients from one piece of equipment to another, during different procedures, thereby decreasing handling and contamination.

When operated as an infant warmer, the upper part of the hood of the Duetto remains above the radiant heat reflector which, in turn, is positioned externally, eliminating risks of contamination. The front and side access walls fold down, avoiding removal of the patient and permitting up to three professionals to work together in performing critical procedures.

In incubator mode, the hood is spacious and ergonomic, facilitating access and procedures, besides having a safe and stable microclimate, whose air filtration system has sufficient area to retain dirt and microorganisms, thus providing patients with a protective insulation and increasing the useful life of the filter. The Duetto 2386 has five oval hatches with non-toxic fittings; one silicone double tube insert at the unit head, for introducing and positioning the breathing circuits; and eight tube inserts on the four corners of the hood, which enable better positioning of tubes and cables in relation to the patient and sources, thereby avoiding folds, discomfort, disconnection and occasional contamination.

The bed of the Duetto 2386 is spacious and radio-transparent, made of non-toxic, plastic material, with external devices that facilitate operator access and reduce the need for contact with the patient and the equipment internal environment. It has a continuous and smooth operating system, with external manual adjustments for the Trendelenburg, reverse Trendelenburg and high horizontal positions, as well as 360° swivel movement.

Hearing aid and personal sound amplifier, headphones and wireless TV headset

More versatile than a TV headset, a sound amplifier will amplify and give clarity to conversations and voices for people that want to hear better or with greater listening comfort. A personal sound amplifier is also called an assistive listening device. Personal amplifiers are not a hearing aid, prescribed by the audiologist. You can use personal amplifiers like the TEO and TEO First as a complement to hearing aids with a telecoil position using a neck-loop. One can also listen to the amplified sound with earphones or a headset.

Tinteo’s headphones offer a high fidelity sound and balanced frequency response. Bass are present, but not overwhelming. Medium are clear. ABA 122 noise cancelling headphones reduce up to 85 % of the surrounding noise. This allows you to enjoy your music safely even while travelling (plane or train rides). You will not have to endanger your ears by listening loudly.

Tinteo’s latest product, TEO Duo headset is a sound amplifier that doubles as a wireless TV headset. Thanks to a small radio transmitter, the receiver gets the sound of your television. You will then listen using your earphones directly to the sound of the television. Transceiver distance is 30 metres indoors and a 100 metres outdoors. The 2.4 GHz radio technology used is secure and user-friendly: no frequency set-up or automatic pairing and no interferences.

Hill Rom’s Progressa bed system promotes early patient mobility

Hill-Rom, a global leader in patient support systems introduces the Progressa™ bed system, an innovative intensive care technology designed to actively promote early patient mobility. Progressa is the first bed system to incorporate StayIn- Place™ advanced articulation technology that helps keep patients in the optimal position during movements of the bed.

Complications related to patient immobility include deep vein thrombosis, muscle atrophy and weakness, depression, pulmonary embolism, cardiac muscle atrophy, osteoporosis and constipation.1,2,3,4,5

Many immobility-related complications are associated with prolonged hospitalization.


Patient migration or sliding down in the hospital bed can lead to repetitive repositioning and increased lift burden for caregivers. Developed by Hill-Rom’s ergonomic research labs, the StayInPlace advanced articulation technology matches the movement of the bed with the natural elongation of the spine that occurs when a patient moves from supine to upright positions. StayInPlace helps keep patients optimally positioned to minimize movement toward the foot of the bed as the head of bed is raised.

The Hill-Rom Progressive Mobility™ program is a complement to its mobility product portfolio and incorporates education and protocols to assist healthcare facilities in implementing early mobility therapy safely and efficiently.

For more information about early mobility, the Progressa bed system and the Hill-Rom Progressive Mobility program, visit www.MobilityIsLife.com
