The NEW Welch Allyn PRO6000 Ear Thermometer is Here! August 12 2015
MonsterMed is incredibly excited for the launch of the Welch Allyn PRO6000 ThermoScan Digital Ear Thermometer. Ever since we first heard whispers about the product in the beginning of year, we have been on the edge of our seats waiting for the launch announcement. We have finally received it!
The Welch Allyn PRO6000 ThermoScan Digital Ear Thermometer has a number of new features and functions that improve upon the popular PRO4000 Thermometer. The PRO6000 will round out Welch Allyn’s industry leading line of thermometers, which includes the SureTemp Plus 690, SureTemp Plus 692 and CareTemp Touch Free. The Welch Allyn PRO6000 Ear Thermometer will start shipping on September 1, 2015.
The PRO6000 Digital Ear Thermometer’s key feature is PerfecTemp Technology, which provides superior measurement accuracy without the need for precise positioning in the ear. It also corrects for shallow placement in the ear, which is a common issue that results in low readings. The PRO6000 has a superior user interface design with a large, backlit display that’s easier to read in low room light conditions and is located on the back of the device for easy viewing. The ergonomic handle design fits comfortably in your hand and is easy to hold and operate while audible and visual cues will help guide the operator on proper use. Clinical workflow enhancements include a 60 second pulse timer for manual measurement of respirations or pulse, a dedicated memory recall, C/F scale conversion operation buttons and the ability to set temperature scale default to Celsius or Fahrenheit. The PRO6000 integrates with the Connex Spot Monitor to simplify EMR data transfer and reduce user error.
In addition to the PRO6000’s improvements, there have also been improvements on the disposable probe covers as well. The new probe covers for the PRO6000 feature a flange design that prevent unauthorized “knock-off” probe covers to be used which could potentially jeopardize reading accuracy and damage the device.
The PRO6000 ThermoScan Digital Ear Thermometer is ideal for medical environments including ICU, PACU, ED, Triage, Surgical Floors, Blood Banks, Dialysis, Long Term Care, School Health, Pediatrics, Family Practice, Internal Medicine and more. It is the ideal choice for critical patient measurement applications requiring higher precision accuracy. Order your PRO6000 today!
Attention Physicians...House Calls Are Back! August 07 2014
A trend is emerging in medicine today…or should we say, making a come back. Taking a page out of the playbook of doctors from years past, modern physicians are becoming more and more receptive to the idea of house calls for patient care. House calls offer several benefits over a traditional doctor visit by offering the patient a greatly increased level of comfort during the appointment. House calls also offer the physician a chance to observe and analyze the patient’s living situation, looking for any factors that may contribute to a patient’s condition. Though there are many benefits, there are hurdles to face with the decision to begin house calls.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle to a physician in deciding to begin house calls, is the availability of medical equipment normally available in a physician’s office. When it comes to traveling with equipment, there are many options to choose from.
Taking a patient’s vitals is always the first step in physician visit. To take the patient’s temperature, the Welch Allyn Thermoscan Pro4000 Thermometer is a great, inexpensive option. It uses standard AA batteries, or it can be powered by an optional, long-life rechargeable battery. The patient’s temperature is taken with the click of a button, quickly, accurately, and comfortably. It is very durably so it can survive transport between patient’s homes and your office.
To take the patient’s Blood Pressure, there are a couple option. The classic hand aneroid, like the Welch Allyn DS58 or ADC Diagnostix 703, is a simple, durable solution that is time tested. If you wish to maximize patient interaction, and have your hands free for other things, an automatic solution is a great option. The Welch Allyn Connex ProBP 3400 Blood Pressure Monitor is an affordable automatic blood pressure device that can take a reading in 15 seconds! It is fast, uses a lithium-ion battery, and is EMR capable, allowing the user to upload the results when you get back to your office.
Finally, every primary care physician needs a good otoscope. We suggest the Welch Allyn MacroView otoscope. It has twice the field of view and 30% more magnification available than a traditional otoscope. It offers excellent optical clarity and adjustable focus in a comparatively small package. For home visits, the ability to accept a 3.5V Welch Allyn rechargeable battery pack makes the MacroView an excellent choice.We hope that gives you a good head start on getting geared up for making house calls.
