YMS installs additional Philips MRx Telemedicine Server offering selected clients worldwide connectivity

YMS has installed an additional Philips MRx server for clients that cannot justify the investment and/or do not have the expertise to install & maintain their own MRx Telemedicine servers.

The server is housed in a temperature controlled server room with intelligent battery backup & power generator backup.

This server is separate to our existing MRx servers that we currently have installed & maintain for key clients of ours.

Access to the new server is available from within South Africa & from any location worldwide with internet connectivity.

The server can receive Philips MRx 12 lead ECG data as well as full Philips MRx PCDT (Periodic Clinical Data Transmission) of alarms, trigger events, trends & all wave forms.

Philips MRx defibrillators require an internal Philips MRx Bluetooth module or a Philips MRx WiFi/GSM module to be able to transmit data.

The Philips MRx offers clients a tried & tested Telemedicine solution in the EMS environment & has a solid track record spanning many years.
It is the most affordable platform to install & maintain.

A monthly fee payable annually in advance might be applicable. Pricing varies according to the quantity of units per service.

Ultrasonography in the emergency department

Ultrasonography in the emergency department

Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) is a useful imaging technique for the emergency medicine (EM) physician. Because of its growing use in EM, this article will summarize the historical development, the scope of practice, and some evidence supporting the current applications of POCUS in the adult emergency department. Bedside ultrasonography in the emergency department shares clinical applications with critical care ultrasonography, including goal-directed echocardiography, echocardiography during cardiac arrest, thoracic ultrasonography, evaluation for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, screening abdominal ultrasonography, ultrasonography in trauma, and guidance of procedures with ultrasonography. Some applications of POCUS unique to the emergency department include abdominal ultrasonography of the right upper quadrant and appendix, obstetric, testicular, soft tissue/musculoskeletal, and ocular ultrasonography. Ultrasonography has become an integral part of EM over the past two decades, and it is an important skill which positively influences patient outcomes.
