Envision Ultrasound Covers and Pads

100% gel-free ultrasound procedures • Envision™

Just Add Water……
Envision™ by CIVCO Medical Solutions is a viral barrier which enables 100% gel-free ultrasound procedures. The Envision™ ultrasound products are activated with a sterile liquid and require no gel, which:
• reduces the risk of contamination
• can improve the quality of FNA specimens
• simplifies workflow

Reduce the Risk of Contamination
Based on multiple clinical studies, ultrasound gel has been shown to harbor and spread infection. Gel can:
• contribute to increasing nosocomial infection, the spread of hospital acquired infections
• cause bacteria to be introduced into the blood stream
• make the disinfection or sterilization process of devices, including ultrasound probes, less effective

Envision™ enables gel-free ultrasound procedures, reducing the risk of contamination during needle-guided interventions or while scanning non-intact skin.

Improve Quality of FNA Specimens
Envision™ covers can help improve the visibility of cells in FNAs by eliminating the need for gel from these procedures. Several studies show the adverse effects gel can have on fine needle aspirations:
• Impairs the visibility of cells and interferes with staining of cells
• Causes a significant increase in the number of slides with artefacts
• Causes widespread cell lysis, increasing the risk of misinterpretation and a false positive diagnosis
• Mimics colloid, creating difficulty in differentiation between artefact and colloid

Miscellaneous

Usono ProbeFix System

For use with all brands of cardiac ultrasoundtransducers

ProbeFix fixates an existing ultrasound probe to the apical or parasternal side of the body. This provides a stable and lengthy fixation of the probe to the body and enables continuous monitoring of the four or five chamber view of the heart. This non-invasive tool empowers ultrasound measurements. These improved measurements lead to more reliable data and a better workflow. ProbeFix had direct benefit during stress echocardiography procedures in cardiology departments and cardiac output monitoring on the intensive care department.

Stress echocardiography is a procedure with dobutamine or a physical exercise on a treadmill or bike. During this lengthy procedure, both wall motion and flow are measured to assess the state of the heart. The use of ProbeFix increases the reproducibility of the image, by ensuring a stable fixation during and after the examination.

Cardiac output monitoring of the heart is important to assess the need for fluid administration to the patient at the intensive care. VTI monitoring with ultrasound enables monitoring of the cardiac output in a non-invasive way. ProbeFIx allows a stable way of VTI monitoring by measuring at exactly the same body position. This leads to reliable results, it is non-traumatic and therefore less harmful for the patient.
