Getting the Most from Your Ultrasound Equipment

35C50EA-Convex-Ultrasound-Transducer-For-SaleIn many health practices the ultrasound is a versatile piece of equipment that is used for much more than many people realize. Perhaps one use that may surprise the average patient is that ultrasounds can be used to assist with needle guidance. Recently, the Natural Ultrasound team has heard of some issues with the transducer  casing deteriorating, so we have done a bit of research to determine what is causing this problem.

It should first be noted that the issue with deterioration is not being seen in all practices that use ultrasound equipment, but rather it is most prevalent in practices where specialties such as sports medicine, orthopedic, vascular, endocrinology, podiatrists, and pain management are common. In addition, in scenarios where the deterioration occurred it was determined that the offices were using ethyl chloride at the needle injection site which was then transferred to the transducer . This was causing the head of the transducer  to break down. And while the amount of time it took this to happen varied, in one instance this occurrence took only six months!

What You Can do to Minimize Deterioration to Ultrasound Equipment 

For many practices, the ultrasound is an important part of the treatment process, so you need it to function properly every time your reach for it.  Here are some tips to keep your ultrasound in top condition.

  • Don’t skimp on time and cost by bypassing the use of probe sheaths or covers! We found that in the offices where deterioration was occurring, the sheaths were not being used every time. As a result, the probe head began to deteriorate due to a build-up of ethyl chloride.
  • After each use of the ultrasound probe, it is vital that the equipment be cleaned. Wearing gloves and using clean or soapy water, gently wipe off any gel on the tip of the probe head being sure to remove all foreign matters.
  • Rinse the probe with sterile water to remove any chemical residue.
  • Do not use a brush to clean the transducer as it will cause damage.
  • Minimize the use of non-sterile ultrasound gels.
  • After rinsing, dry the transducer using a sterile cloth or gauze. Drying is best done using a low-lint cloth. Never dry by using heat!
  • Do not allow the transducer probe to become overheated during the cleaning and disinfecting process. This can cause damage or deformity to the probe.
  • Rinse the probe with sterile water to remove any chemical residue.

As physicians, it is important to do all you can to minimize the amount of discomfort a patient experiences. Consequently, it is vital to take steps to prevent the deterioration of your equipment. So, don’t overlook the value of using the probe sheaths when performing ultrasound accomplished procedures and following the proper cleaning process.

With comprehensive cardiac functionality, you can use Vivid e as either a primary or secondary diagnostic system. In addition to the non-imaging CW pedoff transducer, this unit is equipped with several wonderful tools such as multi image view, integrated reporting, as well as a comprehensive measurement and analysis package. The Vivid T8 unit is similar to the Vivid e when it comes to portability. It weighs only 58 kilograms (128 pounds) and is easy to push and roll in any type of location. The Vivid T8 has an array of quantitative tools to help improve its cardiac imaging capabilities. These features include capabilities such as Tissue Velocity Imaging and the ability to automatically assess left ventricular ejection fraction using a speckle tracking ROI tool.

The Vivid S5 and S6 units are mid range models. The Vivid S5 unit offers economical space design and versatile applications. This machine is a high-performance ultrasound system made for cardiovascular and shared services applications. In addition, it features one touch, optimized image quality for challenging patients. In order to help obtain high quality images, the Vivid S6 provides several special tools such as ultra-high frame rates, dual focus, Speckle Reduction Imaging and Coded Phased Inversion Harmonics. This unit also adds many shared-service capabilities to its already impressive list of features. The Vivid i and q units are also mid range models. The Vivid i is created for cardiovascular imaging, abdominal, small-parts, perioperative monitoring and 2D ICE imaging. It boasts new imaging technology such as Ultra Definition image optimization algorithms, Smart Depth, Adaptive Reject and Wide Aperture. This unit is also ultra portable and convenient when it comes to mobility. The Vivid q builds upon the exceptional features of the Vivid i but adds more performance and quantitative analysis tools. This unit allows clinician to assess LV function and cardiac performance with clarity and accuracy. This machine is also compact and is equipped with 16 probes.

The Vivid E9 and E9 with XDclear are GE’s high end models and were created for cardiovascular 4D imaging. This unit allows imaging of the entire heart in a single beat and
allows clinicians to image a valve or the entire ventricle. The E9 also provides tools including
4D Stress, Polar Vision, Depth Illumination and advanced ergonomics. In addition,
