Mindray To Showcase DC-8 Ultrasound System At The American College Of Emergency Physicians Meeting

Stocks in this article: MR





MAHWAH, N.J., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices worldwide, today announced that it will demonstrate the new DC-8 ultrasound system at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) annual meeting being held in Denver October 8-10, 2012.

"The DC-8 system offers superior image quality and focuses on ergonomic design as defined by our users," said Michael Thompson, vice president of Ultrasound Sales, Mindray North America. "Suitable for a wide variety of applications, the DC-8 will help improve patient management, increase ease of use and offer excellent value."

Mindray North America also announced that it has partnered with the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) to underwrite a grant for point-of-care ultrasound, providing further insight into ultrasound's benefits in emergency medicine. EMF will be developing the grant topic in collaboration with Vicki Noble, MD, emergency physician at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital and ultrasound section chair for ACEP. The grant is intended to support research which central hypothesis is that point-of-care ultrasound performed by emergency physicians or mid-level practitioners improves patient outcomes, reduces costs, and limits the necessity for more expensive and potentially harmful follow-up imaging studies. While prior research has documented the speed and accuracy of diagnosis when emergency physicians perform ultrasound, there is a paucity of data on patient outcomes and the impact of point of care ultrasound on patient safety, healthcare costs, or the use of additional imaging methods.

For nearly 40 years, the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) has funded innovative clinical and laboratory research and continues to lead the way in emergency medicine education and research. To date, EMF has funded nearly $10 million in grants. Created to demonstrate and advance the distinctive specialty of emergency medicine through research and education, EMF was founded in 1972 as a 501 (c) 3 charitable research and education foundation and sets its funding priorities from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).

"We are excited to work collaboratively with organizations like EMF within emergency medicine and across the specialties to advance point-of-care ultrasound and ultimately, help improve the care of the 116.8 million emergency department patients treated each year," Thompson added.  "We understand the impact ultrasound is having on the way clinicians deliver care today, and strive to advance its utility and ease of use for professionals as well as positively impact patients."
