What Our Customers Have to Say

“Working for the Odessa fire department, I have spent the last 10 years training paramedics on how to use ultrasound in the pre-hospital setting. SonoSite’s systems are incredibly simple to use, portable, durable and have truly changed the dynamic in which first responders can diagnose a patient at the point-of-care. Quickly, the paramedics can scan a patient for internal bleeding, and then determine whether they need to call the surgeon to head into the local trauma center. SonoSite has placed valuable technology in the hands of EMS providers and as a result, they have brought major benefits to patients at the point-of-care.”

—David Spear, MD, EMS Medical Director, Odessa, Texas

“SonoSite has built their systems to perform in all types of environments. They are easy to use, rugged and quick to deploy. I have relied on them to provide high resolution imaging from military field hospitals in combat zones, to pre-hospital settings in the US, to my own emergency department in San Antonio. San Antonio AirLIFE is currently exploring the role of ultrasound in pre-hospital environments. I look forward to the continued development of ultrasound products being used outside of radiology suites.”
