As important as the stethoscope

Donal Martin from Donegal Hospice in Ireland with the SonoSite M-Turbo.


Donal Martin, consultant in palliative care at Donegal Hospice in Ireland, uses a SonoSite M-Turbo point-of-care system to provide care for around 100 terminally ill patients, both at the hospice and in patients’ own homes.


Donal explained: “Serial ultrasound using the M-Turbo system allows me to examine patients in their own homes with minimal disturbance, which is particularly beneficial in those patients suffering from cardiac, renal and hepatic failure.”
