Staff at Southmead Hospital, with Esaote MyLabFive and MyLab25Gold systems, are regional sales manager Sophie Singh, consultant intensivist Karine Zander, consultant anaesthetists Dr Christopher Thompson and Dr Mark Pyke, three SHOs and Esaote national sales manager Tim Fradd.
North Bristol NHS Trust, comprising Southmead and Frenchay Hospitals, has commissioned seven mobile MyLab25Gold systems and one MyLabFive ultrasound system from Esaote to improve front-line patient care in anaesthaesia and intensive care.
The Avon Orthopaedic Centre based at Southmead has an international reputation for hip and knee surgery, and its renal unit, the largest of its kind in the south-west of England, performs more than 100 kidney transplants every year.
“We are a major centre for neuro, orthopaedics and urology,” said consultant anaesthetist Dr Chris Thompson. “We have wide ranging demands for ultrasound across a number of busy surgical departments. Our requirement was for a hard working, fully flexible system with the highest possible quality of imaging. Our use of image guided procedures is increasing.”
