EQUIPMENT NEEDS FOR REDEVELOPMENT
Vital Signs Monitors (x3)
Vital-signs monitors identify the patient and then read blood pressure, pulse, temperature and oxygen saturation levels at precise intervals.
Bladder Scanners (x2)
The bladder scan measures ultrasonic reflections within the patient’s body to differentiate the urinary bladder from the surrounding tissue. It is a noninvasive portable tool for diagnosing, managing and treating urinary outflow dysfunction.
Mobile Lifts (x3)
A Patient lift is an assistive device that will help a caregiver transfer a patient, with limited mobility, from the bed to a chair and back.
A vascular ultrasound is a noninvasive ultrasound method used to examine the circulation in the blood vessels. Vascular ultrasound can be used to evaluate arteries or veins in nearly any part of the body, including blood vessels in the neck, abdomen, arms and legs.
Radiographic Unit C-Arm
A blanket warmer is a heated compartment used to keep linens warm.
Nerve Stimulator + Probes
A nerve stimulator sends electrical pulses through the skin to start your body’s own pain killers. The electrical pulses can release endorphins and other substances to stop pain signals in the brain.
Electric Stretcher (x10)
Floor Mat, Anti-fatigue (x4)
An otoscope or auriscope is a medical device which is used to look into the ears. Health care providers use otoscopes to screen for illness during regular check-ups and also to investigate ear symptoms. An otoscope potentially gives a view of the ear canal and tympanic membrane or eardrum.
A surgical operating microscope allows a surgeon to view the anatomy of a patient in high magnification, making it possible to clearly see the finest details.
An operating table, sometimes called operating room table, is the table on which the patient lies during a surgical operation.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the simplest and fastest tests used to evaluate the heart. Electrodes (small, plastic patches that stick to the skin) are placed at certain spots on the chest, arms, and legs. The electrodes are connected to an ECG machine by lead wires. The electrical activity of the heart is then measured, interpreted, and printed out. No electricity is sent into the body. A ECG cart holds the machine in place while preforming tests.
