  • SonoSite representatives joined Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) at Audley End House in Essex on the 25th June as the charity celebrated its 20th anniversary and unveiled its rebranded fleet – including the first public appearance of its recently purchased Augusta Westland AW169 helicopter – at an open day attended by 3,000 people. The spacious new helicopter, one of two operated by EHAAT, offers virtually 360 degree patient access and is equipped with highly specialised and advanced life-saving equipment, including point-of-care ultrasound for management of cardiac arrest and advanced life support.

  • Safe-T® is a new device created to remove the risk of injury from capping used needles. It is designed to be easy to use, without interfering with the normal process of blood sampling using Vacutainer®-type blood collectors. Safe-T looks like any common blood collector tube holder, and it is used in exactly the same way: a standard needle fits to one end, while standard collector tubes fit into the other. The Safe-T requires minimal change in operating procedure from other regular blood collection by Vacutainer method. The benefits of Safe-T come into effect once the last sample has been collected and the final collector tube removed. The operator simply takes the special Safe-T red plunger and inserts it into the holder and presses down until it clicks. The effort required is no more than inserting a standard collector tube (Vacutainer). This ?click’ signals that the needle has withdrawn from the patient automatically, and is now safely encapsulated, with the plunger, inside the holder. The used device with the encapsulated needle can now be disposed of in the sharps bin in the standard way.
