Dual screen aids training in critical care ultrasound

The X-Porte has touch screen control.

Watford Hospital, part of West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, is using ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of critical care patients.  Consultant in anaesthesia and intensive care Dr Devaraja Acharya explained: “The hospital has a busy 19-bed ICU that relies on point-of-care (POC) ultrasound to assist patient diagnoses, and to guide invasive procedures such as the insertion of chest drains.”

The hospital invested in a SonoSite X-Porte POC system for ICU, complementing MicroMaxx and S-Nerve systems, which are used in theatres to perform regional blocks.
