Serving Those Who Serve Our Country: Medical Device Company Answers the Call of a U.S. Combat Hospital in Iraq
Date:5/13/2008

NASHUA, N.H., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- When Sergeant Heather Maddy of the 325th Combat Support Hospital in Iraq e-mailed Vascular Technology, Incorporated (VTI) of Nashua, NH inquiring about a desperately needed piece of critical care equipment called a Surgical Doppler for her operating rooms, she never expected one to be delivered within days -- free of charge.

"I would like to let you know that we received the Doppler [System] a few days ago!" SGT Maddy wrote. "And we cannot thank you enough!"

The hospital and SGT Maddy received the VTI Doppler System just before incurring a "mass casualty" in which the Doppler was used on several patients undergoing surgery including once on a gunshot wound victim.

"It couldn't have come at a more perfect time!" SGT Maddy wrote. "Thank you seems such an understatement for our gratitude!"

The Surgical Doppler is used to guide the surgeon during surgery to locate hidden blood vessels and evaluate blood flow. SGT Maddy told VTI her combat hospital conducts many vascular surgeries and were in critical need of a Surgical Doppler System with sterile disposable probes, since their depleted supply left them with only non-sterile probes.

The amount of time needed for purchase-order paperwork by the hospital would delay the Doppler System's delivery to Iraq -- a scenario VTI did not want to happen. So VTI stepped into action and shipped a new Doppler System with a supply of sterile probes, free of charge, to the 325th Combat Support Hospital. Waiting for critical medical supplies and instruments is never an option at a combat hospital, and being prepared always pays off, as is evident in how soon the hospital used the Doppler after receiving it.

VTI is a world-leading developer and manufacturer of high precision, intraoperative Doppler Systems and other medical equipment to the critical care areas of hospitals. VTI's Doppler allows for accurate, real-time intraoperative assessment and delinea
