SonoSite X-Porte™ boost for regional anaesthesia in Swindon
The Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has recently purchased an X-Porte™ point-of-care ultrasound system from FUJIFILM SonoSite to extend its ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia capabilities for orthopaedic surgery.
“The X-Porte has a very elegant, functional design, and the touchpad is both intuitive to operate and straightforward to clean, which is a significant advantage for infection control. As with all SonoSite systems, it is a fairly robust piece of kit – which is vital in a busy theatre environment – and boots up very quickly, which again is an important consideration. In terms of image quality, the X-Porte is a step ahead, with a large screen and very good resolution, and we are only just beginning to discover its potential for regional anaesthesia.”
