A new point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) system automatically identifies the edge of the gastric antrum (GA) and calculates the area with a single screen tap.

The Mindray Medical (Shenzen, China) TE9 POCUS features a large, 21.5-inch high-definition (HD) touch screen for enhanced viewing, which gives clinicians a clear and confident view from anywhere in the examination room. In addition, the TE9 is equipped with iVocal voice command capability, which enables hands-free instructions to be issued for faster response times. Comprehensive disinfection capabilities make it suitable for environments that require frequent decontamination, allowing for a quick turnaround time between examinations.

The TE9 features a host of intelligent tools for fast-paced environments, including Auto GA, which helps evaluate gastric content and aids clinical decisions regarding patient suitability for surgery; Smart VTI, which automatically locates pulse wave (PW) Doppler sample line in real-time to display VTI; Smart IVC, which help assess volume status over time and guide fluid management; Smart B-line to enable rapid assessment of lung tissue; smart fetal heart rate (FHR) measurement during the first trimester; and iNeedle, an advanced needle visualization technology.

Additional features include three transducer connectors for various exam types; a built-in battery that allows for up to two hours of continuous scan time; and dedicated cable management to avoid transducer damage, tripping hazards, and contamination. eGateway Integration seamlessly connects the TE9 wirelessly to the hospital’s EMR, enabling clinicians to easily and securely access patient data and send exam information, images, and reports. The paperless process also improves workflow and productivity and reduces the risk of manual transcription errors.

“In response to pressing challenges facing clinicians, Mindray has persisted in developing innovative ultrasound solutions that enable improved patient care,” said Xujin He, general manager of the medical imaging system business unit at Mindray. “The new TE9 is equipped with a host of features designed to expand Point-of-Care ultrasound solutions and meet evolving clinical needs.”

The exponential growth of POCUS use in the intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital clinical wards has been driven by mounting clinical evidence showing heightened patient safety and less risk of complication when key interventions are performed with ultrasound guidance at the POC, such as imaging the abdomen, heart, and lungs, and when guiding interventional procedures, such as nerve blocks and targeted injections.
