    Pocket ultra sound system

    Ultrasound System fits into a lab coat pocket.
    October 12, 2007 - Intended for complementary initial diagnostic care and triage, particularly in cardiology, emergency care, and obstetrics, ACUSON P10(TM) can be used by physicians and medical personnel in environments such as intensive care units, ambulances, and medevac helicopters. Hand held diagnostic ultrasound system weighs 1.6 lb and can detect fluid, determine cardiac activity, pericardial effusion, and abdominal aortic aneurysms.

    Not since the introduction of the stethoscope has one tool promised to do more to enhance emergency medical screening and triage decisions. The ACUSON P10™ ultrasound system allows emergency physicians and EMTs to make earlier, faster and more accurate care decisions when time is of the essence. And its ability to easily store and output images, supports the move towards evidence-based decision making.

    The ACUSON P10 system is ideal for use with the Focused Assessment by Sonography for Trauma (FAST) protocol to visualize intra-peritoneal fluid or intra-cavity hemorrhage due to blunt trauma or penetrating wounds. Its highly effective for quickly determining cardiac activity, assessing pleural effusions and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs).Liver/kidney interfaceSmall Form Factor, Big Possibilities
    With the ACUSON P10 ultrasound system, physicians and clinicians can:Instantly gain insight into critically injured patientsInstantly visualize cardiac activity during resuscitation or ‘crash’ eventsReduce or eliminate unnecessary tests or proceduresImprove bedside monitoringIncrease patient throughputImprove outcomes
    Featuring cardiology and abdomen presets and an intuitive PDA-style user interface, the ACUSON P10 system offers instant power-up for high-quality black and white 2D-mode imaging with a 2-4 MHz phased array probe. It includes an SD memory card slot and USB port for simplified communication of patient Cine data, and a dock/recharge station with a spare battery.
    Corpsman should have these.
