Independent medical device review site Which Medical Device launches new Anaesthetics section
Date:1/26/2012

Los Angeles, CA Which Medical Device, the only online review site to provide independent, expert opinion and reviews of medical devices, have launched a new section devoted to Anaesthetic devices. This joins the three pre-existing sections of Cardiology, Interventional Radiology and Orthopaedics.

Launched in 2010, Which Medical Device (http://www.whichmedicaldevice.com) was created by clinicians for clinicians and enables medical professionals to search, locate, review and compare medical devices relevant to their specialties. The dynamic site, which partnered with SAGE in 2011, enables members to exchange opinions and insights that will help them to select devices to optimize patient outcomes.

The newly launched section includes reviews of devices such as the Fabius GS premium ventilator (manufactured by Drger Medical), patient monitoring devices including the EMMA Emergency Capnometer (manufactured by PHASEIN), and airway equipment including the Airtraq Guided Video Intubation (manufactured by Prodol Meditec).

"Increasingly, there are numerous new items of medical equipment available, yet only a limited ability to decide how useful they are in clinical practice." said Dr Ian Nesbitt, Senior Editor for Anaesthetics and a Consultant in Anaesthesia & Critical Care. "Which Medical Device offers an excellent opportunity for clinicians to read balanced, individualized views of equipment and to contribute their own opinions. This website is an exciting development, and should both simplify and speed up the process of selecting and evaluating equipment for individual and departmental use."

Dr Phil Haslam, Editor-in-Chief and Consultant Interventional Radiologist added, "Anaesthetics and critical care is an important section for Which Medical Device, as this specialty uses many different devices ranging from anaesthetic machines and monitoring devices to nerve ablation devices and drainage catheters. There are numerous manufacturers and making the correct device choice is difficult but vital for optimal patient care."

"News stories remind us daily how critical it is for specialists to select and use the most appropriate devices. SAGE is delighted to help develop and expand this innovative site" said Tessa Picknett, Associate Director, SAGE. "We are confident that the new section will be an important avenue for communication between clinicians in Anaesthesia."
