Anesthesiology ECHO Machine – Total Needed – 1 – $225,000
Ultrasound plays a key role in helping healthcare providers manage a diverse range of patients. The challenge is to find a single ultrasound system that provides high-performance imaging across all critical applications. This system provides superb, consistent imaging across a wide range of applications, including cardiac, vascular, and pulmonary. In addition, its portability and extended battery life make it easy to move from location to location to image patients.
It enables superb imaging across a wide range of clinical applications in a highly portable unit. Enhanced with XDclear imaging architecture and probe technology, the ECHO machine delivers superb imaging across a wide range of applications. All while delivering greater portability with a smaller footprint and the option to scan via battery alone for up to one hour. Productivity enhancers – such as large touchscreen and intuitive keyboard – help speed workflow. A selection of sophisticated clinical tools allows the physician opportunities to utilize educational, service, and financial solutions.
Plasma Thawing System – Total Needed – 1 – $7,000
A Plasma Thawing System generally uses both controlled temperature and agitation to effectively thaw plasma. The system is able to thaw multiple units at one time and is programmable, so technicians can perform other tasks while the system is operating.
Electrosurgical Unit – Total Needed – 2 – $11,000
An Electrosurgical Unit (ESU) is a generator that uses high-frequency electrical currents to cut and coagulate tissue. A physician uses a hand piece connected to an Electrosurgical Unit to make very precise cute with very little blood loss. The electrosurgical system is a full-featured system that provides electrosurgical cutting and coagulation, bipolar functionality, and vessel sealing in a single generator. It features a user-friendly interface with three touchscreens that allow the user to control the system functions. TissueFect sensing technology precisely manages energy delivery. Enhanced LigaSure tissue fusion technology allows fusion of vessels up to 7mm, lymphatics, pulmonary, vasculature and tissue bundles. Quick and efficient power and mode adjusts from within the sterile field for shorter procedures.
Endoscopic Video Equipment – Total Needed – 1 – $70,000
Endoscopic Video Equipment generally includes a processor, which is controlled by a keyboard, an image controller, triggered by synchronization pulses derived from an endoscopic image video signal, a mixer for mixing the endoscopic image, a light source, DVD recorder, and a high definition monitor. Endoscopic instrumentation including cameras and light sources, for performing minimally invasive procedures, capturing images, and sending them to the video equipment where it can be displayed on the HD monitors for easy viewing and accurate diagnosis.
Pump Motor Drive and Infusion System – Total Needed – 2 – $35,000
This Pump Motor Drive and Infusion System is used as a temporary circulatory support device. It is used along with a transseptal cannula, which provides a steady supply of oxygenated blood to the organs while decompressing the left ventricle to reduce the work of the heart. This system can be used percutaneously without the need to open the patient’s chest, and can provide full or partial cardiopulmonary bypass during a surgical procedure, or temporary circulatory bypass for diversion of flow around a planned disruption of the circulatory pathway necessary for surgical procedures.
Vascular Doppler – Total Needed – 1 – $35,000
Vascular ultrasound provides pictures of the body’s veins and arteries. Doppler ultrasound is a special ultrasound technique that evaluates blood flow through a blood vessel, including the body’s major arteries and veins in the abdomen, arms, legs and neck. Doppler ultrasound measures the direction and speed of blood cells as they move through vessels. The movement of blood cells causes a change in pitch of the reflected sound waves (called the Doppler effect). A computer collects and processes the sounds and creates graphs or color pictures that represent the flow of blood through the blood vessels.
