SonoSite’s NanoMaxx® ultrasound system is proving a key asset for ambulance and helicopter paediatric retrievals across Scotland, helping to ensure the safe transfer of patients from remote, rural sites.

Jon McCormack, a Consultant in Paediatric Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Retrieval at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh, explained: “The Paediatric Retrieval Service is responsible for the transport of critically ill and injured children across Scotland to the nearest paediatric intensive care unit, often from extremely isolated locations with no critical care facilities. While ultrasound equipment may be available, it is unlikely to be suitable for line placement in a baby or child, and so the Paediatric Retrieval Service invested in a NanoMaxx system that is taken to all call-outs.”

For a retrieval service, portability, size and weight are important considerations. The system must also have a good battery life, as a retrieval can take several hours, during which time it may not be possible to charge the system. In addition, it should be easy to clean and water- wind- and drop-proof to a certain extent, as the system may be used both indoors and out, sometimes in extreme conditions. We’ve had the NanoMaxx for two or three years now, and it is ideal. It is very user friendly – just turn on and scan – allowing me to insert a line more rapidly and safely, with 100 % confidence that it is correctly placed.”
