Echo Scan Tables- Facilitating Cardiology Procedures

Aug 28, 2008
Echo scan tables are valuable medical tools designed for use during cardiology examinations and procedures. Cardiology examinations are most effective when the patient is in the optimum position for the doctor to have easy and complete access to the left chest area. Examinations of the heart include heart echoes, cardiac ultrasound, or sonography, as well as other forms of cardiac imaging. The results of a heart scan are most effective when the patient is completely relaxed, comfortable, and unmoving. A stable medical environment to work in can be a great benefit during cardiology procedures for both patients and doctors alike. Cardiology exam tables help to provide the stability and positioning necessary for a successful cardiology examination.

Echocardiography tables operate to create a functional work-space for cardiologists so that patients can receive the proper imaging results and diagnoses from the procedure. To give the exact positioning of the patient, cardiologist tables offer adjustments in several different ways. By creating a comfortable, effective place for the patient to rest during the procedure, both patient and doctor can have peace of mind knowing that quality images will result without much discomfort. Echocardiogram tables are very efficient devices that help prepare the patient for cardiology procedures quickly and easily, saving valuable doctor time and energy. Cardiologists are able to better focus on the procedure at hand because the cardiac ultrasound tables eliminate the distraction of achieving a proper procedural position.

Several key features of sonography tables help to increase the usability of the product. The multi adjustment systems that are offered on most cardiac sonographer tables allow for doctors to put the patient in the most suitable position for the duration of the procedure. The two support legs of echocardiography tables have aluminum lift mechanisms, which are electronically controlled using a foot pedal and are synchronized to one another. The height of the cardiologist table ranges from 20 inches to 29 inches; the lower setting is ideal for wheelchair patients. For additional positioning, the angle of the echocardiogram table's headrest can be manually adjusted and a wedge pillow can be utilized in order to enhance the patient's comfort level.

Directly under the patient's heart area, cardiac ultrasound tables have a 10 inch by 12 inch section that can drop away for increased doctor access to the left thorax. A sliding latch mechanism allows this section of the echo scan table to open; when the section is closed and in place, it provides support and stability. To increase patient safety during cardiac procedures and reduce unwanted patient bodily movement, an echocardiogram table strap can be a useful option. The table is constructed with urethane foam padding which provides a soft, comfortable surface for patients to rest on. Sonography tables have a weight capacity of up to 400 pounds. Non-adjustable height cardiac sonographer tables are constructed with sturdy, solid legs and have underneath storage shelving.

The employment of cardiology exam tables has helped to promote doctor efficiency and productivity during cardiac examinations and procedures. Major inconveniences to both the patient and the doctor are prevented through the use of echocardiography tables. Hospitals and medical clinics implement cardiac ultrasound tables in their facilities to improve on their overall efficiency and accuracy during cardiac procedures.
