The Modern Way To Perform Vascular Checks
The operating room—an environment you know well. Your operating table is in the middle of the sterile field, along with your Mayo tray and tools like scalpels and syringes. Outside of the sterile field is your circulating nurse, an essential member of your team. You work with them to pull other sterile supplies and adjust your vascular Doppler system. There’s a lot to discuss with your nurse in the OR, but vascular Doppler device control adjustments shouldn’t be in the conversation. With the VascuChek® System, you take complete control of vascular flow checks, leaving your nurse free to take care of other responsibilities.
The VascuChek® is a handheld, cordless device that uses Doppler technology to produce sound representing blood flow within a vessel. Equipped with a continuous 9 MHz wave system, the VascuChek® outperforms current Doppler systems that use a large transceiver box with tethered probes and restrictive cords. With this simple, intuitive device, you can instantly check your patient’s blood flow in a non-sterile environment and sterile field, hassle-free and without interruption.
Now gone are the days of nurses holding three-pound, outdated vascular devices over the sterile field and counting on unreliable cables and cords for accurate readings. Improve your OR workflow with the VascuChek®.
Current vascular Doppler systems must remain outside of the sterile field, so it’s difficult for the circulating nurse to reach across the length of the patient to get an accurate blood flow check. The VascuChek® is a wireless Doppler system that eliminates the use of cables and cords. It can be used in a sterile environment, giving you complete freedom to check your patient’s blood flow without compromising the sterile field.
Traditional, vascular Doppler devices aren’t meant for intraoperative use. The VascuChek® is intended for the intraoperative and transcutaneous evaluation of blood flow in a wide range of applications:
- Intraoperative (Microvascular and Vascular)
- Neurological and Peripheral Vascular
Outdated vascular Doppler systems use a large transceiver box equipped with tethered probes and cords and are restricted from sterile fields, forcing you to rely on others to operate the device. Thanks to Remington’s patented sheath deployment method, you can use the VascuChek® wireless Doppler system in a sterile environment. This gives you full control over all facets of the vascular check process and frees up your circulation nurse to tend to other responsibilities.
Other vascular Doppler systems aren’t known for their extensive battery life or quality probes and cables. Probe or console failure is a significant inconvenience for some surgeons—it can take up to 15 minutes to locate another functional device. With the VascuChek®, you get a reliable, water-resistant, and rechargeable Doppler system designed to decrease system failure. Equipped with a rechargeable base station and detachable, single-use probes, you never have to worry about device failure or cable malfunctions during a procedure.
The VascuChek® handheld vascular Doppler system isn’t just wireless—it’s also handheld. Contact Remington today to schedule an introductory consultation about the VascuChek®.
