Mindray North America to Highlight Strength in Advanced Cardiac Imaging at ACEP Scientific Assembly

World-renown developer, manufacturer and supplier of medical devices invites Assembly attendees to explore comprehensive range of advanced cardiac capabilities.

Mahwah, N.J. – October 23, 2019 – Mindray, a global developer of technologies and solutions for patient monitoring, anesthesia and ultrasound, today announced they will be attending the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) 2019 Scientific Assembly to highlight their advanced cardiac capabilities. ACEP, the world’s largest emergency medicine conference, will take place from October 27-30 in Denver, Colorado. Mindray will feature live scanning and an in-booth presentation on Tissue Tracking technology by Dr. Robert Reardon, MD of Emergency Medicine at Hennepin Healthcare, Minnesota’s first Level 1 Trauma Center. All ACEP attendees are invited to visit exhibit #221 to learn more about Mindray’s complete range of advanced emergency medicine solutions.

Over the past 20 years, ultrasound has become an integral part of emergency departments, particularly for use with patients experiencing cardiac arrest. At the ACEP Scientific Assembly, Mindray will highlight its three primary point-of-care ultrasound systems, TE7, M9 and ZS3, each of which is equipped with advanced cardiac capabilities and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) technology.

According to the American College of Emergency Physicians, “ultrasound has been shown in cardiac arrest to accurately identify the presence or lack of intrinsic cardiac activity and in some cases the cause of arrest, including left ventricular failure, right ventricular failure, pulmonary embolism, pericardial tamponade, and hypovolemia1.” The College also observed that TEE allows emergency physicians to continuously monitor the patient without interrupting chest compressions during a cardiac arrest1.

Mindray’s advanced single crystal transducers with 3T technologyTM allow the end-user to scan at higher frequencies without the loss of penetration, thus bringing large cart-based image resolution to the point-of-care setting. Accompanying Tissue Tracking technology with quantitative analysis allows users to monitor the displacement of cardiac tissue by tracking the speckle displacement in the image from frame to frame. This advanced technology brings quantitative cardiac dysfunction assessment tools to the bedside.

“Through a partnership with Mindray, I have gained access to incredible life-saving technologies,” says Dr. Reardon. “I am passionate about assuring that every one of my patients receives the highest quality emergency care, and Mindray’s ultrasound systems empower me to provide care above and beyond the industry standard. Their mission to put healthcare within reach is evident in all that they do to support my team and me.”

Also on display will be Mindray’s new BeneVision N-Series Patient Monitoring Platform, the first-ever patient monitoring platform to incorporate capacitive touchscreen technology across all of its monitors. Using its unique multi-gesture touch and swipe control, similar to a smart device, clinicians can cut minutes off of clinical review, analysis and charting time. Applying the same user interface across the entire suite, N-Series supports unprecedented usability and clinical proficiency. Additionally, with the clever N1 3-in-1 monitor at the core, serving as both monitor and module and with wireless capability, N1 provides gap-free monitoring from the point of admission to discharge.
