Mr. O'Donnell added, "The timing of the VascuView(TM) introduction is key, as clinicians continue to adopt the use of ultrasound as a standard of care and technique for vascular access to ensure efficacy and reduce complications. The addition of the VascuView(TM) Visual Ultrasound System to our existing PD Access(TM) and SmartNeedle(TM) Doppler Ultrasound Guided Needles, allows Escalon Vascular Access to offer a complete product line for assisted vascular access needs."
Escalon Vascular Access specializes in the design, manufacture and distribution of instruments for assisted vascular access, including the PD Access(TM) and SmartNeedle(TM) Doppler-guided vascular access assemblies, which are used to locate desired vessels for access. These patented devices utilize a miniature Doppler ultrasound probe that is positioned within the lumen of a needle. When a Doppler-guided needle is inserted subcutaneously, the probe and monitor can differentiate when an artery or vein is approaching and guide successful access. The devices are distributed worldwide and used across several specialty groups including cardiac catheterization labs, intensive and critical care units, and interventional radiology.
Founded in 1987, Escalon develops markets and distributes ophthalmic
diagnostic, surgical and pharmaceutical products as well as vascular access
