Patient Contact

SAN FRANCISCO, April 4, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Healthcare (http://www.siemens.com/healthcare) highlights its smallest ultrasound solution -- the ACUSON P10(TM) ultrasound system -- at the International Conference on Emergency Medicine (Booth #300), April 3-6, 2008 in San Francisco.

The ACUSON P10 handheld diagnostic ultrasound system is a little larger than a common PDA, weighs only 1.6 pounds, and fits easily into a lab coat pocket. It delivers on demand ultrasound imaging and is intended for complementary initial diagnostic care and triage, particularly in emergency care, cardiology and obstetrics.

"Instead of having to rush the patient to the technology, the P10 system brings the technology to the patient. This can save critical minutes, especially when a patient is in cardiac distress or with trauma patients, who have multiple injuries," said Dr. Eyal Herzog, FACC, director of the Cardiac Care Unit at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, in New York, an early ACUSON P10 system user. "The application flexibility and portability of the ACUSON P10 pocket ultrasound system mark significant changes in the way emergency care is administered, changes that could alter the face of the physical exam and, ultimately, lead to better patient outcomes."

The ACUSON P10 system can be used by physicians and medical personnel in a number of environments including intensive care units, ambulances and medevac helicopters. In emergency situations, it is the point of care exam tool allowing for earlier, faster and more accurate screening and triage decisions. Its emergency applications include FAST (Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma) to detect free fluid, the determination of cardiac activity and pericardial effusion, as well as detecting abdominal aortic aneurysms and performing pelvic exams.

"In emergency situations you have the need for rapid patient assessment, and in many environments like helicopters or ambulances, you have limited space," said Klaus Hambuchen, chief executive officer, Ultrasound, Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. "The ACUSON P10 system is the ideal solution to bring ultrasound imaging to these scenarios. It is small and portable, there are no concerns about radiation exposure in unprotected areas, and it is digital, so images can be saved and transmitted easily."

Bridging the gap between the stethoscope and an ultrasound machine, the ACUSON P10 system enables more substantiated and fast decision-making regarding the subsequent course of treatment for the patient. The multifunctional pocket ultrasound system is being used today in emergency medicine, cardiology and obstetrics. More information is available at http://www.pocketultrasound.com
