When a patient first walks into your office, he or she may not be taking a mental inventory of your equipment. Once the visit is underway, however, they will expect that your office is equipped with all of the medical devices necessary to make a diagnosis or answer any questions they have.
While the aesthetics of the waiting room or individual patient rooms may help to put a patient at ease, the real comfort comes from knowing they are receiving quality care. Make sure your doctors and nurses have access to vital tools like an ECG machine to monitor a patient’s heart activity. In addition to simply having a modern machine in your office, your staff should know how to quickly and effectively work with the particular device. There may be slight differences from brand to brand of ECG machines, so ensure that the whole staff is trained to properly use the new device, especially if a patient comes in the office with any of the following symptoms:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting or heart palpitations
- Medicinal side effects
- Ineffective pacemaker
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
You will certainly want to have an electrocardiography machine on hand to help determine the root cause of any symptoms. If you are searching for a new ECG machine, browse our vast selection of top brands available at Medical Device Depot.
