How to Choose the Best Medical Cart

6400PEC-2If comparing medical equipment, most people would assume that hospital carts are the least important. While they don’t measure blood pressure or cure illness, medical carts do organize and hold the supplies that doctors use to treat patients. This is an important job, and not just any old cart will do. When searching for medical carts for your practice, look for these three features.

Casters

Time is valuable, especially in a hospital. To prevent doctors, nurses and medical assistants from wasting their time getting up and walking over to the storage cabinets every time they need another tool, provide them with a cart with casters. This allows medical professionals to bring the supplies to them.

Numerous compartments

A lot of medical tools are small and easily lost. To organize equipment and make them accessible, choose a cart that has several compartments. One large storage cabinet or drawer makes it difficult for medical staff to keep track of all their supplies.

Locking systemWC33669XXX-2T

In some situations, like at a pediatric’s office, it makes sense to store medical supplies in a locked cupboard or drawer. If you’re concerned with patients getting into the practice’s medical equipment, search for a cart with locks that lets you secure supplies and prevent unfortunate accidents.

Medical Device Depot offers a wide range of medical carts to help you find the perfect design. Visit our site to begin your search today.

How to use Retina Vue Network for diabetic retinopathy screening

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working-age adults, affecting millions of Americans today. What’s even more worrisome is that primary-care practices can prevent vision loss caused by diabetic retinopathy, but many don’t have the equipment to run assessment tests. It’s high time the medical industry becomes aware there’s now new technology that can save patients’ vision, and it’s incredibly easy and cost-effective to use.

The Welch Allyn RetinaVue Network is an affordable and effective diabetic retinopathy screening tool that can double patient-compliance rates in just 12 months. It involves an incredibly simple four-step process, which is outlined below.

  • Acquire: After entering required patient information, use the RetinaVue RV 100 Imager to acquire images of each eye. You’ll know the image is successful when the green checkmark appears on the camera. Remember to save the good-quality images.
  • Transfer: Place the RV 100 Imager in the docking station and click “Submit Exam” to transfer images.
  • Analyze: After transferring images, a board-certified retinal specialist will evaluate the exam. The specialist will identify, classify and document all levels of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Report: A diagnostic report provided by the retinal specialist will be returned that same day. This report includes the patient information, images, a diagnostic report and referral/screening plan.

Patients shouldn’t have to suffer from vision loss caused by diabetic retinopathy, a highly treatable condition. Bring the Welch Allyn RetinaVue Network into your primary-care practice to improve patient care and earn in more revenue. You can visit Medical Device Depot today to learn more.

Testing for sudomotor dysfunction

Diabetes is a complex condition that often causes a variety of complications, one of them being autonomic neuropathy (or autonomic dysfunction). From the digestive system to heart and blood vessels, autonomic neuropathy affects numerous body systems all at once. It’s important your practice is prepared to diagnose and treat the wide range of symptoms that patients with this condition can experience.

Sudomotor dysfunction refers to the symptom of diabetic autonomic neuropathy that affects a person’s sweat glands. Patients experiencing sudomotor dysfunction might sweat excessively, especially after eating even non-spicy foods and at night. Sudomotor dysfunction also causes patients to not sweat at all, even when it’s extremely hot outside. Sweat, of course, is needed to keep the body cool.

To diagnose sudomotor dysfuntion, along with other common features of diabetic autonomic neuropathy, your practice should invest in equipment that provides a precise evaluation of sweat gland function. The SudoCheck Sudomotor Testing device is a new method that tests the electrochemical reaction between electrodes and the chloride of stimulated sweat glands, which allows your staff to discover information that otherwise would go undetected. It’s backed by 30 years of documented medical studies and features a variety of benefits, including Sympathetic Skin Response and Body Composition Analyzer.

To learn more about the SudoCheck Sudomotor Testing system, and how you can use this new method in your practice, visit Medical Device Depot. Here you can receive the newest technologies for an affordable cost, ensuring your practice is prepared to provide the best patient care possible.

Bring more patients to your practice with a complete allergy testing kit

More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, and that number may continue to grow in the near future.

How much time is needed to do cognitive testing?

Dementia can’t be slowed or cured, but those experiencing memory loss can function better with proper care.

Test for dementia and other cognitive function impairments with this one tool

Though we hold on to memories as best we can, over time events and names from the past start to slip away; the older we become, the more likely we are to forget. Forgetfulness, however, isn’t always a sign of natural aging or too many years gone by. Sometimes it’s actually signaling something much more serious. Significant memory loss can occur after brain trauma or a sudden change in mental health. It can also indicate underlying health conditions, like dementia. Testing cognitive functions early and regularly in patients is critical to managing and preventing brain impairment. Learn how your practice can objectively assess patients using one simple, affordable device.

The eVox system includes Electroencephalography (EEG), Electrocardiography (ECG) and Event-Related Potential (ERP) to help identify and understand cognitive impairment. It assesses the level of cognitive impairment and the change in brain function over time. While managing a patient’s memory loss and cognitive function, your staff can also use the eVox system to determine effectiveness of treatments and provide the best care possible.

Find the eVox system for an affordable price through Medical Device Depot. This device is the first objective tool that is also portable, non-invasive and easy to use. You can learn more details on the eVox system, as well as find more high-quality medical equipment by visiting our website today.
