Healthcare professionals realize that knowledge, coupled with the right medical technology, saves time and lives. ER doctors use point-of care visualization, like the SonoSite needle visualization technology, to get immediate clinical information, improve patient safety, and decrease complications.
SonoSite has long recognized the very specific needs of emergency physicians, and we offer products that are uniquely suited to provide full diagnostic capabilities at the bedside. Fast, high-quality imaging at the point of care saves lives, increases patient safety, and improves clinician efficiency.
What our customers have to say
“There are many, many patients who would not have lived had they gone to another emergency department. Having ultrasound available at any time simply lowers the threshold for life-threatening conditions. You want answers, you want accuracy and ultrasound gives you that.”
—J. Christian Fox, Director of Emergency Ultrasound, University of California, Irvine Medical Center, Irvine, California
“Using ultrasound reveals anatomy previously unseen. It removes the practitioners’ blindfold and allows them to first confirm whether a procedure is indicated and then perform the procedure more safely and effectively by visually guiding the intervention.”
—Paul R. Sierzenski, MD, RDMS, FAAEM, FACEP, Director of Emergency, Trauma and Critical Care Ultrasound, Director Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship, Christiana Care Health System, Newark, Delaware
