Medical Device Depot – ABI Doppler

Diagnosing Peripheral Artery Disease with an ABI Doppler

Trying to diagnose PAD or many other arterial diseases is not an easy task and requires you to have the right equipment to go with all of the training you have received.  One of the best tools you can have is an ABI Doppler. This highly sophisticated piece of equipment is designed to make arterial exams far faster and provide you with far more accurate results than have been possible in the past.

One of the biggest problems faced by many clinics and physicians is that an ABI Doppler is typically a very expensive piece of equipment. This puts what is a vital piece of diagnostic equipment out of the reach of the very doctors they were designed for and patients who are at risk in a position where they might not get the treatment they need.

At Medical Device Depot we can prove you with the ABI Doppler you need at a price that will fit in with your budget.

Medical Device Depot – Capnograph

Tracking Proper Breathing with a Capnograph

Most people are under the impression that as long as you are getting enough oxygen coming into our lungs, then we are in good shape. In truth not only do we have to have enough oxygen coming in, we have to be exhaling the right amount of carbon dioxide. While a pulse oximeter can monitor the oxygen saturation level in your patient's blood, you need a Capnograph to monitor carbon dioxide levels in their blood.

By using a Capnograph you will be able to decide if your patient is hyperventilating or whether their lungs are providing the proper exchange function or not. Proper oxygen levels are of course vital, but if the patient's CO2 levels are too high many other medical conditions can occur that can be very hazardous to your patient's health.  This makes the Capnograph a vital piece of diagnostic equipment for your facility.

At the Medical Device Depot, we can help you with a Capnograph at the lowest possible prices to ensure that you have the best diagnostic equipment possible.
