Section 179 Deduction and Bonus Depreciation - 2014 Update

In 2014 the section 179 deduction, which allows partial expense of equipment and software purchases in a calendar year, has dropped to
$25,000.00. Prior to 2014, Bonus Depreciation allowed for immediate depreciation of 50% of the cost of equipment. It was allowed to
expire on December 31, 2013. Now the maximum amount of equipment that can be purchased before the deduction begins to be
phased out is $200,000.00 (the deduction will be completely phased out once purchases exceed $225,000).

Heart Disease Predictor in Women

Heart Disease Predictor in Women

A recent article collaboration between WebMD and Nasiff indicates that a woman's resting pulse rate is a good predictor of her heart attack risk. Although heart disease was primarily seen in men, recent studies show that the disease is rising in women.

The increased cases of heart disease throughout the county emphasizes the need for effective cardiology equipment, including Blood Pressure and ECG Machines. Nasiff CardioCard products provide a competitively priced solution to your diagnostic needs. A free, no-obligation online demonstration for these machines can be arranged within five minutes.
Medical Device Depot offers the best prices on all medical equipment, including the complete line of Nasiff products. For more information or to schedule a free online Nasiff demo, call 877-646-3300 or visit Medical Device Depot.

Why Stress Testing?

A stress test can be used to test for heart disease. Stress tests are tests performed by a doctor and/or trained technician to determine the amount of stress that your heart can manage before developing either an abnormal rhythm or evidence of ischemia (not enough blood flow to heart muscle). The most commonly performed stress test is the exercise stress test.

What is an Exercise Stress test?

The exercise stress test - also called a stress test, exercise elecrocardiogram, treadmill test, graded exercise test, or stress ECG - is used to provide information about how the heart responds to exertion. It usually involves walking on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike at increasing levels of difficulty, while your electrocardiogram heart rate, and blood pressure are monitored.

Why Do I Need a Stress Test?

Your doctor uses the stress test to:
  • Determine if there is adequate blood flow to your heart during increasing levels of activity.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your heart medications to control angina and ischemia.
  • Determine the likelihood of having coronary heart disease and the need for further evaluation.
  • Check the effectiveness of procedures done to improve blood flow within the heart vessels in people with coronary heart disease.
  • Identify abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Help you develop a safe exercise program.
What Are the Types of Stress Tests?

Stress tests come in many forms, including:

Treadmill Stress Test: As long as you can walk and maintain a normal ECG, this is typically the first stress test performed. You walk on a treadmill while being monitored to see how far you walk and if you develop chest pains or changes in your ECG that suggest that your heart is not getting enough blood.

Dobutamine or Adenosine Stress Test: This test is used for people who are unable to exercise. A drug is given to make the heart respond as though the person were exercising.

Stress Echocardiogram: A graphic outline of the heart's movement. A stress echo can accurately visualize the motion of the heart's walls and pumping action when the heart is stressed; it may reveal a lack of blood flow that isn't always apparent on other heart tests.

Nuclear Stress Test: This test helps to determine which parts of the heart are healthy or unhealthy. A small amount of radioactive substance is injected into the patient. Then the doctor uses a special camera to identify the rays emitted from the substance within the body both at rest and after exercise. This detects areas of the heart with a decreased blood supply.

For more information on stress testing, call 877-646-3300 or visit Medical Device Depot!

According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists, continual monitoring for the presence of expired carbon dioxide is standard for every patient receiving anesthesia.

New Capnography Sedation Standards

Capnography, which graphically monitors carbon dioxide concentration and measures ventilation and respiration, is utilized in operating rooms, intensive care units and other hospital areas where patients are under anesthesia or receiving sedation. This device sees greater use because it lets providers know that a patient is breathing effectively.

Medical Device Depot sells a number of effective, low-priced capnographs. The most efficient device for long-term CO2 monitoring is the Nonin Respsense. For CO2 and SPO2 check out the Nonin Lifesense.

Medical Device Depot also vital signs monitors equipped with CO2 monitoring. These monitors include the Propaq CS Monitor and the Venni Multi-Parameter Patient Monitor.
