blood pressure quickly and precisely
The Terumo Digital Blood Pressure Monitor ES-P302 measures
blood pressure quickly and precisely in two simple steps:
just wrap the cuff around your arm and press the button.
With an automatically pressurised cuff, a wide
easy-to-read digital display and many other thoughtful
features, the ES-P302 is ideal for daily blood pressure
- Automatically Pressurised Cuff: The cuff is
automatically pressurised to the appropriate level.
- Memory Stores 7 measurements: The convenient memory
function can automatically record and store data from
seven measurements. The average recorded blood pressure
value is also displayed.
- Large readout display: The measurement results appear in
large numerals in the large, easy-to-read digital display.

under stringent quality system
The Haemodialysis Bloodlines from Jamjoon Medical
Industries of Saudi Arabia are manufactured under a
stringent quality system that guarantees functionality.
Jamjoon bloodlines, for which specific models are
available, are Fersenius 2008 single and double needles,
Braun HD Secura 400 ml, Braun HD Secura 600 ml and Gambro
AK10 for adults.
They have an internal smooth and regular wall with a
constant diameter throughout the entire line, reducing the
possibility of haemolysis.
The tube is made of medical grade PVC and is nontoxic. It
is produced with a greater wall thickness,
which not only avoids obstruction by collapsation
(Anti-kinking) but reduces blood volume loss from the
patient’s body during Haemodialysis. Connectors
are in Luerlock with double screw. The chamber also has an

the temperature from a distance
Thermofocus is the first non-contact thermometer. It can
measure a baby’s temperature at a distance which means
there are no more tears.
It is also hygienic, safe and easy to use, but accurate
and instant. It reads and displays the patient’s
Thermofocus has only to be positioned close to the
forehead in a perpendicular position until two beams of an
aiming light converge. It can also take a baby’s
temperature by being held over the navel. The correct body
temperature can be obtained by subtracting the corrective
value given on the label on the back of the product from
the number shown on the LCD.

way to examine plates and dishes
The Scienceware Plate Reader allows the safe examination
of the bottom of microtiter plates and petri dishes
without the potential problems of lifting the plate over
the observer’s head.
The Plate Reader consists of a clear deck for holding the
plate and a large, clear, adjustable 3X mirror for viewing
the reflection of the underside of the plate.
This safe approach eliminates the risk of spills on the
face and eyes of the observer.
The reader is ideal for hemagglutination, hemagglutination
inhibition, haemolysis and agglutination testing. Other
applications include counting of bacterial cell cultures
for colony or plaque growth.

air care 24 hours a day
Travel Care offers a team approach in providing the
highest quality air medical care available - 24 hours a
Services are available anywhere in the world thanks to
state-of-the-art equipment, a quick, reliable and safe
fleet of aircraft, with highly trained support staff.
Travel Care provides emergency/critical care and basic
life support (BLS) transport throughout the United States
All aircraft have specially built advanced life support
interiors for maximum space and equipment for critically
ill or injured patients, including those who need
respirators, intraaortic balloon pump support or
hemodynamic monitoring. Each aircraft has a flight plane
and an air-to-ground radio communication system to talk
directly to the medical control physician.
Travel Care medical personnel are critical care
specialists. Travel Care provides a nurse/paramedic team
on all airplane transports as required. If needed,
speciality teams and a physician will accompany a Travel
Care transport crew member.

provides critical data on neonates
A sensor that delivers respiratory and metabolic data in
real time, a critical requirement in the care of
high-acuity infants, has been introduced by Diametrics
Medical and Agilent Technologies.
Called the Neotrend-L, the sensor is part of the Trendcare
Continuous Blood Gas Monitoring System.
While it has been available since 1998, demand from the
growing neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) market has
resulted in development of the product so that is now
compatible with Sherwood Services AG’s Argyle 3.7-French
(Fr.) catheter and with new Argyle 5.0-Fr. Single lumen
catheters with luerlock hub. A 5.0-Fr catheter is
generally used for infants with birth weight greater than
1,500 grams, while smaller patients require smaller access
“Many patients admitted to NICU weigh in at 1,000 grams
or less. These babies, dubbed ‘micro-preemies,’ are
born extremely early - around 24 to 28 weeks gestation,”
said Dr. Mark Mammel, Director of Neonatal Research and
Education at St. Paul’s Children’s Hospital, and
Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Minnesota.
“Every patient in the NICU requires skilled observation,
and many require advanced medical interventions, such as
mechanical ventilation and close monitoring of pH and
blood gas (PCO2 and PO2) levels. For NICU patients,
continuous monitoring of pH and blood gas parameters plays
a central role in guiding care decisions.”
Roy Johnson of Diametrics Medical said: “We recognised
that many neonates, particularly those who are transferred
into a NICU from another facility, often have an Argyle
catheter in place. Compatibility with this widely used
catheter brand makes Neotrend-L a viable option for more
patients.” Added Agilent’s Greg Sebasky: “Neotrend-L
is ideally suited for the smallest, high-acuity infants
who are most in need of constant surveillance of
respiratory and metabolic status.
“Agilent has made a firm commitment to the neonatal
intensive care market where we believe our technology can
contribute significantly to improving care, and ultimately
reduce length of stay and greatly improve the long-term
health of these tiny patients.”
