Realistic training available with Cardio-Aid 200

Cardio-Aid 200, from Artema, now incorporates a training mode with simulated ECG measurements as standard.

Training costs and complexity is reduced, as an external ECG simulator is no longer required.

To assure fully realistic resuscitation training scenarios for all levels of hospital staff, Cardio-Aid 200 responds to missing cables and missing or poor patient contact exactly as if operated in regular manual or AED modes.

The trainer can easily switch between the typical heart rhythms seen during real resuscitations.

The training mode supports training in defibrillation using pads or internal / external paddles, in cardio-version, and in pacing.

Cardio-Aid 200 will simulate captured beats when the pacer settings are appropriate in either fixed or demand mode.

Cathy proves to be a success both home and abroad

HMD’s Cathy IV Cannulas is one of the recent successful launches of HMD both in the domestic and international market.

With new Volex proprietary polymer, Cathy IV Cannulas is a technologically superior product in comparison to IV Cannulas with FEP/PTFE (TEFLON) catheters.

The Cathy IV Cannulas can be inserted in the vein easily without peelback (splitting of Catheter during insertion) thereby making second and third reinsertion possible without having to throw away.

It is widely known that catheter material is a key factor affecting the incidence of reddening and swelling of the skin (thrombophlebitis) at the site of cannulation after a few hours of cannulation.

Trials of Cathy IV Cannulas done at Apollo Hospital, Batra Hospital and Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, have shown that the chances of thrombus generation are minimised in the case of Cathy, thereby reducing the medication cost.

The new generation Dynapulse is smaller and lighter

The Dynapulse 5000A ambulatory blood pressure monitor is smaller and lighter than its predecessor.

The new, compact DynaPulse 5000 ABP monitor looks more like a portable CD player than a medical device. Designed for comfort, the DP 5000 ABP features a stylish black holster that may be clipped to the patient’s belt or worn using the supplied shoulder strap. Velcro loops on the strap hold the air hose in place. Some patients may prefer to conceal the cuff and air hose under clothing, making the 5000 ABP even less conspicuous.

Inside, DynaPulse’s validated technology enables accurate measurements and storage of up to 100 blood pressure readings. Each measurement includes the full-disclosure arterial pressure waveform which – when displayed on your computer – helps validate the occupancy of each measurement and flag irregular heartbeats. The 5000 ABP provides both 24-hour ambulatory and automatic interval monitoring modes. Easy-to-use software assures complete patient data management, interpretation and reporting.

Creating pulsed magnetic stimulation in the pelvic floor muscles

The PCK EIMT is a new device for the treatment of incontinence in women.

The device works extracorporeally by using pulsed magnetic stimulation in the pelvic floor muscles.

EIMT is an easy-use, non-invasive and painless piece of equipment that is used for stimulating pelvic floor muscles with a time-varying magnetic field generated.

The patient simply sits on the EIMT chair with normal daily clothes on. The created magnetic field causes contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles in each excitation period. This continued action is a good exercise to rebuild the strength and endurance of the pelvic floor muscles to help regain bladder control.

EIMT has no side effects and is for women of all ages. The device consists of a magnetic field control unit and a treatment chair.

It is an ideal device, not only for hospitals, but also for doctors’ offices because of its easy treatment method and effective results.

New system can meet the requirements of many

With the VIO System, ERBE Elektromedizin GmbH has introduced a new generation of electrosurgical units into the market.

The System’s hardware and software can be individually configured to meet the requirements of physicians in many different medical fields.

The System is operated by means of a high resolution interactive display.

The System’s software makes daily operations in the OR easier, offers greater safety and improves surgical results.

The System’s high degree of modularity is already apparent in its hardware: in addition to the electrosurgical generator, which serves as the master operating unit, additional OR modules can be integrated into the system cart.

The System can be expanded to include an Argon-Plasma-Coagulation unit (with two output sockets) suction units for secretion and smoke plume evacuation as well as other accessories.

The generator can be individually equipped with variable output sockets and electrosurgical functions – depending on the individual customer’s requirements.

Over and above the conventional modes for monopolar and bipolar cutting and coagulation, the ERBE VIO system also offers a number of newly defined functions for a wide choice of applications.

The System can be upgraded to handle new developments or changing requirements and is open for future improvements. Service and maintenance are made easier by the modular structure and concept of the VIO system.
