Respiratory specialist Petra Schinle using the SonoSite M-Turbo.
Jersey General Hospital is using SonoSite’s flexible M-Turbo hand-carried ultrasound system for a range of procedures in its emergency admission unit (EAU) and emergency department.
Respiratory specialist Petra Schinle said: “We have had SonoSite point-of-care ultrasound systems on our paediatric and adult intensive care units for a number of years and, having experienced first-hand how useful bedside ultrasound can be, we wanted to introduce it for emergency and acute patients.
“We chose an M-Turbo due to its multi-functional nature and ease of use, and worked closely with our radiology department to ensure appropriate training and governance.”
