M-Turbo fits Royal Surrey’s intensive care unit

Dr Justin Kirk-Bailey uses a SonoSite M-Turbo at Royal Surrey County Hospital.


Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, uses SonoSite’s M-Turbo point-of-care ultrasound system for diagnosis and treatment in its intensive care unit. 


Consultant intensivist and anaesthetist Dr Justin Kirk-­Bayley said: “The Royal Surrey County Hospital is a leading general hospital and specialist tertiary centre for cancer and hepatobiliary and oesophagogastric surgery, and our ICU supports a lot of major surgical work.


“We had outgrown our previous ultrasound system in terms of the image quality we wanted to achieve and upgraded to the M-Turbo so that we could broaden our range of ultrasound capabilities, as well as having an instrument suitable for training.”


“We can accommodate several different probes and switch between them at the click of a button. It also allows us to perform echocardiography, offering the image quality that radiologists and cardiologists are used to and eliminating the need to borrow equipment from other departments.
