An electrocardiogram (ECG) is used to check for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. It shows the heart’s electrical activity as line tracings on paper. The spikes and dips in the tracings are called waves. It is used to rule out the cause of unexplained chest pains. It also helps in understanding the functioning of mechanical devices that are implanted in the heart, such as pacemakers.
A ventilator is designed to exchange breathable air in and out of our lungs. This helps the patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently. Modern ventilators are computerized machines, which allow patients to be ventilated with a simple, hand-operated bag-valve mask.
A wheelchair is a chair fitted with wheels. The device comes in variations allowing either manual propulsion by the seated occupant turning the rear wheels by hand, or electric propulsion by motors. It helps people to become more mobile and independent. We have customized types of wheel chairs depending on the patient’s requirements. The list includes Normal wheelchair, Electric wheelchair and Wheelchair with commode etc.
An Oxygen Cylinder is a high-pressure, non-reactive, seamless tempered steel container for compressed gas (O2) used for medical, therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. It gives the provision of supplemental oxygen to maintain aerobic metabolism during patient transport. We deal in different capacities depending upon the requirements of the patient.
Pulse Oximeter is a device that is used to measure the oxygen saturation of arterial blood in a patient by utilizing a sensor, attached typically to the finger, toe, or ear to determine the percentage of oxyhemoglobin in blood pulsating through a network of capillaries in the human body. It indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient’s blood.
